I am a working pregnant woman doing online jobs. Can it affect my baby too much if I work in computers even if I take a rest a bit if I feel tired?

I am a working pregnant woman doing online jobs. Can it affect my baby too much if I work in computers even if I take a rest a bit if I feel tired?

No: Obviously, rest during pregnancy when you are tired is ideal, but a working pregnant woman does not always get that option. (smile). Several years ago several Washington Post employees were concerned about many miscarriages in the office allegedly caused by the computer video display terminal (VDT). Several studies have proven that notion FALSE. Computers will not hurt your fetus. ...Read more

Will being pregnant prevent me from passing a work physical for a cna job?

Will being pregnant prevent me from passing a work physical for a cna job?

Shouldn't: The longer answer is: it depends on the physical. If you are expected to do something dangerous to your unborn baby, then it will. But I can't imagine a scenario that you would be asked to do something that dangerous.

Very important - let them know that you are pregnant up front. Always be clear so they can't say that you withheld information to get the job.

Good luck and congrats! ...Read more

I am 28 yr old female, planning to get pregnant in a couple of months. I have a job offer were I am supposed to work in night shifts. Is it safe?

I am 28 yr old female, planning to get pregnant in a couple of months. I have a job offer were I am supposed to work in night shifts. Is it safe?

Probably not.: Working the night shift while being pregnant should not be a problem as long as you are able to sleep during the day. Sleep is very important to your overall health. There is an association between sleep dysfunction and obesity. Healthy weight gain is advocated during pregnancy. To sleep during the day, try to block out all external stimuli, such as light, sounds etc. Don't forget your PNV. ...Read more

Iam pregnant at 5 weeks. Is working at stand up job while pregnancy safe. Iam working 3 days a weeks 8 hours stand up only 1 hours break. Is it safe?

Generally, yes: Pregnancy is a normal physiologic state. If you did this before your pregnancy you should be able to continue without any problems. Of course, if complications develop in your pregnancy such as preterm labor or elevated blood pressure then it is not advisable. Also, late in your third trimester it may be uncomfortable standing long periods. As long as you are able to stand then you may continue. ...Read more

Start small: Gotta address the mood. Your up all night and sleep all day. Gotta reverse that, it's easy medically. Treating the depression will help but I would start nailing sleep wake at the same time. You are likely a shift worker making u a candidate for modafanil, a wakefulness stimulator, read about it online, (modalert). When u feel better, u think better, do better, less bad habits, see good psychia. ...Read more

Exams helpful: If both of you can have a reproductive examination and a consultation about the best way to achieve what you want, it will help. It will prevent your each feeling unsure about possible responsibility and unnecessary feelings of guilt or resentment. As long as you are both fertile and learn the best days for conception, it will happen. Best wishes. ...Read more
