@soon2bmrs.D:  Do they know you are preggos? It sounds like you are def having a stress time at work and this is def not good for the baby or you.  Try talking to them, try telling them how you feel, that is if you feel right doing so, otherwise if your Darling Husband doesn’t mind staying home for the rest of your pregnancy, then stay home or try another job.  Can you maybe get someone to wath DS for a couple of hours or maybe some days a week? so you can get a break…GL and i hope you feel better soon:)

@soon2bmrs.D:  Have a passout day (literally passout at work) or even better get a note from your doctor ordering you to work less hours.

Can you afford to be off work? If so maybe tell the family you need to cut back or be off until after baby arrives. Or tell them you need to cut back. I 2nd seeing if dr will write you a note 😉

I would try to see if you could start working part time rather than full time!

Ugg Sorry things aren’t going well.  I understand working with family as that’s the same for me.  Fortunately I worked everyday except for the 2 weeks of vacation I would take each year.  My family members on the other hand can’t say that.  They rarely work a full week.  So when I was pregnant they didn’t dare say anything about me taking off early or coming in late.  I’m still on leave and was going to take my baby to work with me.  But finally decided that it would be too much to try to work full-time and watch the baby in my office.  So I enrolled him in daycare for next month.  I feel bad but like you mentioned it is hard to do both.  Can you enroll your DS in daycare or get a nanny?  Or a mom’s day out program so you can get a few days of a break?  What about having your doctor write a note about lifting or bending like PP suggested.
