If I cannot stop working, will sitting help reduce the stress on the cervix?

In brief: I wasn't aware
That working causes stress on your cervix.
If so there are millions of stressed cervixes out there.

In brief: A little
If your pregnancy isn't complicated by preterm labor or shortened cervix, the pressure of gravity on your cervix with either working or sitting shouldn't be an issue.
If you have these complications, decreasing gravity's effects works best with lying down. We don't normally recommend restricting your activity that much unless your at high risk for preterm delivery.
