I'm pregnant!!! I have a couple questions.....
I'm 31 and just found out this weekend that I'm pregnant. About 5 weeks, from my estimation. Whoohoo!!!!
A little info:
I haven't been to the doctor yet- both hpt were positive.
I have a regular doctor's appointment on the 25th of this month.
I have a job that requires me to lift 40-50lbs on a very regular basis.
Now for the questions:
I'm planning on calling my doc in the morning to ask if my meds are safe, should I also mention the heavy lifting I do at work? Would she be likely to want to see me before the 25th so that she can write me a lifting restriction note? Or would she be more likely to say that I can continue lifting until I come in on the 25th?
This work/heavy lifting thing has me scratching my head. I definitaly don't want to do anything stupid to jepardize the baby or myself.
Thanks for any info you can give me.
