Working and Pregnant: 5 Workaholics Moms Give Their Testimonies.

I know how hard it is to even think about leaving work behind when you’re pregnant, especially if you’re a workaholic woman like me. When I found out I was pregnant I was thrilled to know I was having a baby since it has been a dream of mine for a long time. Nevertheless, a question came through my mind: But, how am I going to work? My husband offered to take care of all the expenses and that calmed me a little bit.

Still, I am extremely happy when I am working and I didn’t want to leave this part of my life for nine months. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and apply the best solutions for a workaholic mom-to-be like moi. This article is about that! Moreover, I intend to give you some testimonies about other moms that did everything they could to work during their pregnancy. Are you ready to begin?

How can you calm nausea and vomiting in your environment? These are some of the solutions Mayo Clinic gives. I can promise you these work perfectly since I applied them myself:

What can you do about fatigue? Easy thing, girl:

Try to keep as comfortable as you can! You’ll be working for a few hours straight and you must feel comfortable and good in your work environment. Try “using an adjustable chair with good lower back support can make long hours of sitting much easier — especially as your weight and posture change. If your chair isn't adjustable, use a small pillow or cushion to provide extra support for your back. Elevate your legs to decrease swelling.”
