Im in a very similar situation..... i work from 6-2 and i carhop at sonic so im constantly on the move and i have our morning truck orders to put up so i have to move a lot of boxes. Im 36 weeks now and cute down from 5 to 4 days a week but i have to continue working as long as possible so ill be working 3 days the remaining weeks of my pregnancy. So if you feel overworked try working something out with your employer to cut down on the amount of days you work

I'm going to try to work as long as possible and hopefully right up until delivery for financial reasons also. If you start having complications, pain, etc worsened by working, I would talk to your doctor. He may want you on light duty.you need to talk to your employer and they should work with you. If not they have to comply with what your doctor orders.

It's all up to you and if you can afford leaving a little early, I took leave at 36 weeks and had my son at 38 weeks. I was planning on having a month to get things ready for him but things never happen the way you planned.lol
