Pregnant nurses!! Post here!

I'm a nurse who works 12 hour shifts both nights and days sometimes upto 60 hrs a week! How are my fellow nurses dealing with the challenges of pregnancy? I'm 6 weeks and haven't told my coworkers yet

  • Hey!
    Not a nurse :) I'm a teacher. 

    But you may want to change your screen name...it will be a lot easier for people to recognize you and get to know you. There should be a link to a description in the Read First post above. :smile:

  • I'm suffering through it. Especially in isolation rooms, being exhausted, ect. I just about lost it when I had a lady who was physically aggressive post abortion (she bled out and was in DIC needed ICU) she kicked me in the stomach the day after I found out I was pregnant. I have no clue when I'm going to tell work but I think I'm going to tell them on the earlier side 
  • I am not currently a nurse but was with my first. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I told my boss and some co-workers as soon as I had an ultrasound confirm. I did not want to be in an avoidable risky situation if possible. I also wouldn’t have made it long as a secret because my nausea prevented me from assisting with wounds(I almost passed out) which was my favorite task.

    Wow! How does being an L&D nurse impact your thoughts about your own pregnancy/labor? (If you don't mind my asking, lol.)
