In brief: Depends
There are no specific recommendations about this.
It really depends on how you feel. Women who have jobs that require a lot of standing do not necessarily have more preterm deliveries or such complications. Standing for long periods of time, especially in the third trimester, may make you feel more leg pressure or back pressure. These are not dangerous but certainly tiring.
