I had a desk job with my first pregnancy after Jake and would have cold water at my desk and drink and drink and poke my belly all day. Looking back I am not sure how I made it because all the nurses and my doctors could see how stressed I was but I thought i was semi ok. I did try to take it appointment by appointment or kick counter by kick counter. As long as I felt movement it helped but it was tough. It definitely tests your sanity. Can you lie down or sit down a few times at work, during breaks, and feel for movement? Sorry I can't be a help. I know that what works for one person doesn't always work for another. I definitely had the same issues and there was some comfort in the massive amounts of appointments I had. And knowing I could go for a nst anytime I wanted one. I have to say my 2nd was the perfect one to have after Jake because he was extremely active, placenta was not in the front like I had with Jake.
