I have a question. ( questions, BTW )I work as a dancer. I guess I can't continue it for a long time.
Where could I work during/ after my pregnancy?

Hmm... I guess it depends on your previous work experience.

I have a pretty physical job as a bread baker, but I'm just going to keep doing it until I have the baby and start back up after.

Maybe do some office temping? That's what a lot of people I know are doing right now while they make career changes. I guess it depends on if you plan to go back to dancing.
23 years old, having my first baby, getting ready to be a single mom.

Anywhere. I worked at a dr's office as an optometric tech and receptionist my whole pregnancy before. You can work anywhere that doesn't cause a lot of strain on your body.

I work at a vet office in the kennel, I also worked in a kennel with my first baby. I just keep going, my body is used to lifting 45 lb dogs and 20 lbs grates and such.

I worked up until a week before having my first, walking huge dogs, lifting dog food, etc. kennel work involves manual labor but since I'm used to it it's not bad.

I assume you could work anywhere as long a you're comfortable.

Well, besides dancing, what do you have experience in?

I had someone in our last DDC who was a dancer and dance instructor. I think she worked well into her pregnancy but can't remember 100%. She was used to the work and she kept her body in shape still and just didn't do anything major that would harm baby. She also went back to dancing after a short break of getting back into shape after baby

Isn't someone else on here a children's dance instructor? My memory is shot, but I am pretty sure there is.

Uh wait, when you say dancer, maybe the question should be, what type of dancer? Do you teach, in a club, for a dance troop, etc? In a lot of cases, you can keep going, at least until you are no longer comfortable or it becomes impossible.

I believe Erica is a ballet or dance teacher as well. I think as long as you are used to it you can continue doing it until your doctor tells you not to. That being said if you are not comfortable doing that you could look into a temporary staffing agency and see what they have available in the meantime.
