    Haven't told work that I am pregnant and my boss has had me help her move a big table from one room to the other? Should I tell them that I am pregnant now?

    Thanks

    This #7 now so I guess I should say something. It has only been 9 weeks since my last mc and I fell within 4 weeks so I don't want them to think that I am irresponsible etc.

    I can't be moving tables around being high risk so I guess I will have to mention it to them x

    Yes I think you definitely should. After all, I'm sure there's plenty of others who can help move heavy stuff - you need to be careful xx

    Yeah but because I haven't mentioned it, I couldn't think of an excuse as to why I couldn't move the table! x

    Just take them to one side, explain they you're pregnant, that its early so you want it to be kept confidential.

    You could just say you have an injury so can't do it. Like a funny knee or your back is sore

    Hya hun, id defo not risk it.
    If you dont want to tell them yet, just say after everything you went through in the hospital, you'd rather not do yourself damage as youre still feeling a bit fragile.
    Just say, thinking about it, me lifting that table after whats happened the last couple of months, probably isnt the best idea. Is it ok, if I just supervise ;)

    I am going to have to tell them but I may wait until after my scan. I will just feign a back injury until then x

    I've been told I can't lift because we handle people, not objects. There's also a higher risk of ligament damage when pregnant. My mw advised me against it, not sure how tables and things stand though.

    Absolutely!!!

    I wouldn't risk moving stuff if you're not comfortable with it. I was meant to be playing netball yesterday which is meant to be ok in the first 12 weeks but I bailed because I didn't want to risk it. It's hard when you've had MCs before!
