Working during late pregnancy?
Tue, 08-07-2012 - 10:03pm

As a nurse, most of the girls I work with work up until their due date or until they deliver. I guess I had planned on doing the same thing.  Apparently I should maybe give a little thought to this before I decide. There is a new study that may indicate that working late in your pregnancy can be as dangerous as smoking. The study found that there was an incidence of low birth weight if you work after 8 months especially more physicial jobs.

Do you plan to work up until your due date or take off work a little sooner than that?
