    Hey ladies!

    Anyone else have a very labour intense job? I'm a dog groomer and my job consists of heavy lifting, bites, long hours bending over, getting kicked or knocked over and standing in one spot.

    How should I coup with this? My boss isn't the most pregnant friendly person and will insist I have notes for everything i tell her I can't do.

    Is hard work bad for the baby? I break into sweats and have aches and pains daily. Should I quite my job? Go on early leave?

    Thanks in advance for any helpful advice :)
