I had a fairly easy pregnancy and did not require bedrest. I thought for sure I would since I am 5'2'' and 110 lbs. My dr. wanted me to stop working at 32 weeks, I work in an office but due quite a bit of walking since I have two desks. I quit at 31 weeks though due to all the emotional stress I had during pregnancy (several family members passed away, then my dog, my first baby, got extremely sick and almost died ). I was induced at 37 weeks. The last month or so though I couldn't do much because it was hard to breath and I got out of breath easily, so I sat on the couch a lot.

So like others said it depends on the pregnancy and how active you are. I had to slow down probably around 24 weeks or so.
