I am a nurse's aide and the job requires a lot of lifting, pushing, heaving, pulling, etc. I just found out recently that I'm pregnant (almost six weeks!) and am worried to death about hurting the baby. I've already told my boss about the pregnancy.
How much lifting is too much?
When do I need to start worrying about lifting and other heavy duty things at work (because I've already started worrying)?
I'm a full time student as well as worker, so going down to part time / light duty really isn't an option, unless absolutely necessary due to complications or what-have-you.
Any advice would be appreciated and welcomed! I'm a first time mommy and very nervous and overwhelmed (though becoming increasingly excited).
