I work 2 jobs where I am standing all day at both jobs. I don't do both everyday but when I do it makes for a LONG painful day. My feet and back hurt after both jobs... Do I need to quit one? :(  I'm only 10 weeks, and it's probably only going to get worse

First trimester is no joke the worse with back well for me. You wont feel as tired and stressed and wont have much body ache in the second, idk about third im not there yet. Couple more weeks lol but I say if you personally feel like you should quit one then so be it but if you feel you can make it and pull through then stay. Best of luck. And congrats (:

By your third trimester the back pain will prob get worse and your feet will swell up! See how u do,  maybe ull have to quit one job for now,  explain to your bosses your pregos/maybe they get u a chair or more breaks.. But get some good shoes and foot insoles to help.  After work soak your feet in warm water n epsalt and elevate your feet

Im 20 weeks and stand for 8 hrs straight. I don't get a break its hard . My feet and back ache really bad by the time I get off work and drive home by the time I get out the car my entire body is sore. A warm bath helps as well as plenty of rest before  I clock in the next day, and a foot massage from hubby works wonders.

My hubby didn't want me to work while pregnant. Baby is our priority. I stopped working as soon as I found out I was pregnant.. I'm a teacher.

I stand at my job too and back problems suck! I'm only 9 weeks.. I can't imagine doing this when I get bigger.. anyone have problems with feeling super hot? I'll be cold one minute then I'm so hot the next.
