I work at a company that sends out soundtracks on CD. I can be lifting anywhere between a pound to a max of about 75 pounds any given day. I bend every day to fufill our orders.
My co-worker, who is 70, knows that I am TTC. She constantly tells me that all the lifting and bending could be hindering my chances of getting and staying pregnant. Could she be right? I know various people and articles talk about limiting the weight but what is too much and can bending really terminate a pregnancy?
My husband and I have been TTC for the last 5 years, I have had 3 times that I felt were it due to various changes in my body and then within a few days of my expected period it happens.
By now I am concerned she may be right and want to make sure I am not doing anything that is making this not happen for us.
Please ease my fears. I can't quit this job just yet but at least I can lessen the weight, and try something else about the bending if its true.
Thanks for all you help!
