For those who work on their feet or travel/ drive for work... Are you switching duties at work to be able to be off your feet or drive/ travel less while pregnant?

Re: CPW: Working on your feet

  • I worked on my feet nonstop 8 hours a day with a 20 min break when pregnant with DS. It was absolutely horrible. I hated my job but I was also very healthy, didn't gain much weight and didn't really have any other problems. If you have any health concerns I would talk to your doctor.

  • I was on my feet a lot at work and over the past month I have switched duties to be in the office/ desk more. I took tasks from coworkers and they took my out of office/ on my feet tasks. I struggled with not feeling like I could perform my work tasks, but the swelling is out of control and now I'm down to weekly monitoring because of it, so I feel like I made the right decision and am fortunate that my company was willing to work with me.
