Quoting Jackson 3 + 2:" Question for twin mommies and mommies to be. Did you work during your pregnancy and if so how long did ... [snip!] ... here and there as a substitute teacher but I think I'm getting to the point that it's not worth the pain and uncomfortableness."


I worked until I was about 12-15 weeks. I worked at walmart though and stood on my feet for 8-9 hrs and it was just too hard on me. I almost passed out at work and then I had bleeding and they told me I couldn't stand on my feet more then 2hrs and blah so I ended up quitting.

i worked until the day i delivered [unexpectedly!] at 32 weeks 3 days



that's a slight exaggeration, but only slight. I came in to the office on monday morning, like always. had an ultrasound appointment that afternoon for a check up, which led to them admitting me on the spot. Next day I had my girliez



so technically, i took the subway to deliver my twins :)

Is it normal this far along for my stomach to just constantly hurt? When I stand up I feel like babies are going to fall out but my stomach just always hurts the past couple days. I tossed and turned all night :(

I'm currently still working FT. I do have an office job, so I get to sit and dont have to worry with standing all day or anything. I'mm 22wks and plan on working as long as Dr's will let me. I go for my next Dr visit this Friday and I will have to make him aware of some swelling that has started since last week to see if it's anything he thinks should be concerning.



But if I were you I would say to listen to your body. I don't think it'd be worth the pain either.

I worked until I went into the hospital and then on bedrest at 32 weeks but my job wasn't very demanding. My aunt though, worked full time as a teacher of SN children until she gave birth at 40 weeks to 7lber boys.

Thanks everyone for your input. It sounds like 32 weeks is the end point. I can't imagine how your aunt felt at the end...I'm sure she was ready to go. I will just do the best I can. I try to take jobs I know will not require me to stand up to much. I am good for a little bit but I get a burning pain above my belly button when I am on my feet longer than 20 minutes.

My stomach hurts often to and I'm 27 weeks. I was told by my doctors it's normal but I would like to see what other twin mommies say.
