  • It depends on alot. Will they let you come back after taking the whole time off? Can your family make it financially with you off?

  • i think you shouldn't work to hard and stna is alot of work and alot of lifting i would take it easy if you want to keep this baby good luck

  • I wouldn't. I would avoid having sex the first trimester too. Neither the lifting or the stress is good for you or the baby.

  • You shouldn't lift more than 25 lbs, so that would inhibit your work as a CNA. You'll have stress no matter what you do (or stress over money because you're not working), so from that perspective, you should probably learn some helpful ways of dealing with stress. (Believe me, you'll need it by the time baby starts walking!) I would be more concerned about the physical strain of your job than the emotional stresses.
