First, let me say I am new to this board and have read a lot of posts and know we are all in the same boat!
I have a 3 1/2 yr old daughter already and I am 8wks 3d pregnant. I had 1st prenatal exam including transvag ultrasound and the dr said everything looks great! With my daughter I went into preterm labor at 28wks, so they think I will be at risk to do so again. I am just really worried about this whole pregnancy and how much to lift....I am very active and lifting 50lbs daily isn't uncommon. I was also told by the Dr that this is on the higher end of what they allow and to not "strain" myself. Now I have to try to cut back my hours at work so I'm not so run down and try not to lift anything heavy.....problem is I don't know if it is heavy until I have lifted it. I just don't want to mess up and lift something too big and hurt myself or the baby. Also, I don't want to let my supervisor down (he knows about the preg.) by not being able to work because he kinda relies on me so that he can get other things done. I don't want to tell a lot of people about the pregnancy before the 1st tri is over, in case something should happen. Also don't want to lose my job over it!! Maybe someone can help ease my mind?
