These comments are blasphemy... There are some cases where pregnancy damn near cripples women. I lost nearly 40lbs, had three trips to the hospital, 6 IV bags, and two different medications for nausea just so I could drink water again.

But I guess I was just lazy, yeah? I mean, I almost died. But hey, I should have gotten off my ass to work 40+ hours a week, join the PTA, start baby sitting and run for president...


Quoting cdjd23: Don't you know pregnancy precludes you from doing anything.

The moment I find out im pregnant I stop doing anything that I dont feel is worth my child's life.

I have a incompetent cervix and until 1-216 weeks when I get my stitch placed I am that chick. I wont lift anything over 10 pounds, I wont shop all, I pretty much become a complete bum. But after my stitch im also super careful but I also do more.

I worked in a group home during my last pregnancy and did more work than some of the 'able-bodied' employees.
I lifted people until I went out on leave at 36 weeks. I only went out that early because I had tons of vacation time and I was worried I'd go into labor at work- I work overnights and wouldn't have been able to leave if I went into labor.

I was on modified bed rest from 13 weeks on until they discovered my issue was anemia...at 38 weeks...one week before he was born lol. I would randomly black out if I was up on my feet very long but I still did things I needed to. Just no driving or lifting heavy things. I was constantly being yelled at for not sitting down lol Woops.
