While pregnant? I've been working 9 hours shifts. I'm only 5 weeks pregnant but it stinks still all I want to do is curl up and sleep and try not to throw up. I don't wont to tell my boss I'm pregnant but 9 hours shifts are killing me.

I work roughly 10-12 hour shifts 5 days a week. at 28wks i can tell its starting to be to much. the pressure in my butt and girly bits outweigh any other pain at this point.

Not very long... with my first pregnancy I didnt work. With this one, I only work two days a week as a teacher and I find plenty of chances to teach while sitting. Like storytime. Storytime on the carpet is awesome :)

Earlier in my pregnancy, about 12 weeks or so, I worked a double shift at work because DH (we work together) was sooo sick and couldn't come in, so I covered his shift. It was like 15 hours all together. 7am-10pm with two 30 minute breaks.

Between 7-9 hours, I was a waitress so I was always on my feet when I was pregnant and it was rough between throwing up in the beginning and my back hurting at the end.  At 27 weeks I had to quit work and had my son a week later.
