I worked full time for fast food with my first child, then did not work but went to school full time for my second child and this time around i am doing it all working full time going to school full time and being mom to a 8 yr old and a 3 1/2 yr old, the biggest difference that i notice is that i am sore all the time in the abdominal area, i can barely bend the slightest bit and it feels like someone is stabbing me just below the belly button. I should also not that I work at a daycare with 7 toddlers age 18mo to 2 1/2 so a lot of getting up getting down lift to the changing table take off of the changing table and so forth. I just want really to know if any other moms do work full and school and have other children and are pregnant feel similar pains due to so much physical activity?

I am also pregnant with number 3 (31 weeks) my other 2 are nearly 4 and nearly 2 and I am a stay at home mum and full time student (also doing my masters Heather!!). I have found this pregnancy extremely difficult. Have had lots of pains, heaps of braxton hicks contractions and very uncomfortable. I have also only put on a few pounds this time. I think it is the 3rd pregnancy. Everyone I have spoken to seems to have the same experience. I had to have a c-section with number 2 and will do for this one as well which I think has also increased the pains. The braxton hicks are the worst though. Seem to happen every time I am in the car driving or passenger and have 20-30 a day. My midwife said there is nothing they can do though. No signs he is wanting to come out early. When I bend down sometimes it feels as though my lower abdomen is going to explode. Not nice. Will be so pleased when it is all over.

I am pregnant with my 3rd also. I work full time and am currently going to school for my Master's degree. My other children are 6 and 3 and this has definitely been the most painful pregnancy so far. I am 31 weeks now and have only gained 10 lbs so far. I have pain almost every day and I really think it is just from all the stress and activity this time around. At 20 weeks I was put on a 10lb restriction because I just couldn't do it without really hurting. I would definitely cut back on work hours (if you can) and rest as much as possible. I've also had some bleeding from too much activity and its all just day to day stuff.
