Hi, I'm a hairdresser and stand on my feet all day too. This is my second pregnancy(39weeks) and I've worked upto 38 weeks with both. I did nothing but worry with both up till my 12 week scan then I finally relaxed. I'm sure everything will be fine :) x

Most miscarriages happen because something is wrong with the baby, not because of your physical activities. If your doctor thinks it could be harmful to the baby, he or she will take you off work. I'm currently 7 weeks pregnant and a stay at home mom but when i was pregnant with my now 6 year old, i worked on my feet in retail until delivery.

Im rh- too. Im pretty sure that it won't make any difference to whether we are higher risk or not :) my first baby I was 22 yrs old and stayed at work until about 37 weeks (on my feet all day working as a sales consultant) and my second baby I was 26 yrs old and worked up to 34 weeks (personal assistant running around all day)
Personally I think it depends on your fitness level to begin with and definitely invest in some really good sneakers/trainers that have good support. Surely your boss will understand that you need to take it easier than usual :) good luck! !
