So I have one child already and I am currently pregnant with identical twins. I work in a nursery full time which can be very physical and demanding, I was planning on working as late as I can as I did with my previous child, however last week when I picked up one of the bigger children to lift them onto a nappy changing area something in my stomach popped and it left me doubled over in pain, all is fine but It did give me quite a scare and I'm starting to realise I'm not super woman and I need to take things a bit easier, has anyone else worked in a similar environment when carrying identical twins that could give me a bit of an insight as to when you went on mat leave, any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you xx
I worked as a childminder when pregnant with my twins, I worked 4 days a week 8am-6pm with 3 two year olds and it was hard going. I finished work at 30 weeks and physically just couldn't go on anymore. Dtwins arrived 4 weeks later.
I worked until 32 weeks but I have a desk job. That was too much. I really should have finished 2 weeks earlier. It was very very hard and that was with my boss being v flexible and letting me come late and leave early etc.
Full time till 34 weeks with a desk job. I didn't find the actual work day too bad but I was tired as I found it so hard to sleep once I was massive plus by that point it was a bit touch and go whether I could still fit behind the wheel to manage my commute!
