Heavy lifting while pregnant

I started a new job last week and just found out im pregnant. I have to lift 20-30 lbs, only about 10 times a shift and its not for long, just have to move it a couple feet. I know its fine for now but would you continue doing it past first trimester?, I don't want any one at work to know I'm pregnant for a while.

I lifted old people most my first pregancy. There were a few I couldn't lift on my own anymore after a while but yeah, I still lifted quite a bit. Some residents would not let me lift them, but for the most part it didn't affect my job at all.
