This is the second set of What is Life to be a Working Mom Series 🙂
I’ve been working for 14 years now and I cannot imagine myself without doing anything for a day. I want to keep myself busy. And I have been dreaming for a long time to have my own baby.
In my case I have to wait for four months to get pregnant which is not bad because I have a polycystic ovary. You can check it here
It’s my first pregnancy and I am working, what would be my life. I am working as an Executive Assistant to the President of the company which means I belong to the world of stress. The good thing my boss is easy to talk with and he even supported me throughout my pregnancy.
Here are my thoughts of being pregnant while working
If you’re having a low-risk, normal pregnancy, you can certainly continue working. However, your employer must review the potential risks of the work you do and make sure your work won’t put your health or your baby’s health at risk.
1. The first thing to do once you are confirmed pregnant you have to secure a SSS Maternity notification, asked your OB to signed with attached ultra sound and informed your superior.
2. Make it sure that your work place is free from physical hazards.
3. During your first trimester you may only require minimal standing and as much as possible no lifting of heavy objects.
4. Make yourself comfortable
5. Taking time to eat regular meals
6. Wear comfortable shoes and loose clothing
7. Take it easy as possible
Can I work right up to my due date?
Yes you can work up to your due date; you can work as long as you want. As long you are in good health and your OB still allowed you to work. You can choose when to start maternity leave.
Can I drive until my due date?
Yes you can as long you are in good condition and also your car.
Is there any risk working with a computer?
There is no evidence that working at a computer will put you into risk or cause any harm with you and to your baby. You just need frequent breaks.
Hope this one help lovely mommies 🙂
