I know it's not a huge deal to lift when pregnant...and I'm really not one of those over reacting pregnant women lol.
I work with people who have brain injury. Two days a week the clients I work with have wheelchairs and need to be transported. I have to lift the wheel chairs in my cars trunk. When I do this...I'm starting to get burning pressure feeling in my lower uterus.
I have an appointment Friday and plan on asking.
Until then...any ideas about this?
My boss is a male, and a jerk.
He says he can't switch me to a different client unless he sees a dr note. I don't believe my dr will give me a note because I know it's not like completely banned to lift while pregnant..and my pregnancy has been easy so I don't have any complications or anything.
Any advice? Or just an idea what this burning pressure is??
I posted in another group, but didn't get many replies...it's a small group
So I called and talked to my doctor. She seemed pretty understanding.
She faxed me over a paper and the paper said I couldn't lift anything over 40 pounds.
I'd say wheel chair is only like 30 pounds..soooo..I guess I'm still out of luck =(
