When you’re pregnant, you will have do prenatal care and many other things. Yes, there are so much limitation when you’re pregnant. You can’t do everything that you used to be able to do. It’s changed now when you’re pregnant because the things that you do can definitely harm your fetus and you will have birth defects, depending on how severe the factors are done. This is why prenatal care is paramount to the success of your pregnancy. When it comes to the amount of work that is safe during your pregnancy, you have to consult that with a doctor too since it’s such sensitive information, however, you can still read a little online. When it comes to medical regimen, you have to rely on a doctor for everything.

If you have an office job, then it is perfectly fine to continue it until you’re in the third trimester. If you don’t do heavy work or that you move around a lot, you can still do your work, since it won’t affect your fetus, but if you do heavy work or that you’re exposed to chemical, weight, sun, or any other dangerous substance like cigarettes, then it’s time to quit and talk to your doctor about it. These things can harm your fetus and your baby can come out with a birth defect if you expose yourself to it too much for a long period of time. For example, if you are exposed to it for months and years then it’s a problem. If you work in a smoking environment, then you have to quit right when you’re at the first month of pregnancy, because second hand smoke can cause your baby to come out with birth defects. Second hands smoke is just as dangerous as first hand smoke. Many people think that it’s silent and it’s not dangerous, but it’s very dangerous for you and your fetus.

It will depend on the type of work that you do most of the time. If you have a nice, light job in a non-chemical office, then you can work up to the third trimester but if you work in a heavy chemical place, where you’re exposed to chemicals, smoking, heavy work, injuries risks, fall risks, then it’s time to quit. When you need to quit, all you have to do is tell your employer that you’re pregnant and you’re taking a family leave and by law they will allow it to happen.

There are so many people out there that take a lot of risks when it comes to their pregnancy. They are either not aware of the risks associated with their jobs or that they just don’t really care about the health of their babies, but it’s kind of cruel to not care for your babies health, since I saw so many babies who were born with so many defects and they become disabled for the rest of their lives and they will have you to blame on. You will have to take care of them for the rest of their lives and you won’t have a normal baby so it’s imperative that you take care of your health, your jobs, while you’re pregnant and it’s a priority to get prenatal care when you’re pregnant.
