With my first pregnancy, I was sick the entire time and it would have crippled our finances if I was off the whole time because of sickness. Now I'm pregnant with my second child, and it actually went away when my 2nd trimester started and I wish I would have taken some time off on the really bad days. I guess if you can afford to reduce your time or go to half days, go ahead! And as bad as it sounds, i would handle it as well as you can with your employer if you are planning to go back after you have the baby so you know your job is secure.
