It's been one of the banes of pregnant women's existence for as long as one can remember. Trying to find a job while pregnant is practically impossible. Whether it's the employer's fear of higher insurance costs, or that the expectant mom will miss too much work, employers are hesitant to hire moms-to-be.
The paradox of morning sickness: Few people ever really dwell on the trauma of it, because it is the famous first sign of a glorious occasion to come -- the birth of a child. That is true. It's also true that morning sickness can be debilitating, depressing and alienating. Baby or no baby.
Recently found out I am pregnant. I am probably about 5-6 wks. I work as a veterinary technician. I haven't been to my first appointment yet but was wondering about my job risks.
I work mostly with dogs and cats. Daily job duties can include: cleaning cages and litter boxes, walking dogs, using strong cleaning agents and disinfectants such as bleach pine sol and roccal, sweeping & mopping, restraining animals (including dogs big and small as well as aggressive animals), taking x-rays, assisting in surgeries, dealing with bodily fluids of all types.
You have a job. You're pregnant. Is your job dangerous for your baby? The workplace may pose certain risks, depending upon the occupation. Knowing what these risks are and minimizing them will help increase the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy.
Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hi, I had bleeding and strong BH contractions after intercourse with my partner which lasted for 2 days. I'm 18 weeks pregnant.
My scan says this..
The placenta lies mainly on the left lateral wall, however it covers the internal os. No obvious hemorrhage seen.
As my placenta covers the os, what are the chances of it moving by the time I am 38 weeks? I know that 90% of LLP move enough for a normal birth, however as mine covers the internal os are the chances still as high?
