I'm 8 weeks pregnant and my job is way too much for me! I don't want to just up and quit because I might not get hired anywhere else if I do. Will my obgyn give me a notice or something saying I shouldn't be working at my current job if I mention it to her?

I just saw that you work at a frozen food factory..ok..bring pregnant you have to take care of your body, some women can be on their feet all day and some cannot, depends. I was a person who cannot be on her feet all day pregnant...tell your Dr. how you feel...

Depends. Are you around hazardous chemicals? Some kind of other danger to you or your unborn baby?

Normally, your job is supposed to provide some accomodations for you while you are pregnant..but if work is dangerous in such a way to you or baby, then your dr can give you a note stating what you should not be around. But if the job is just too stressful, then you might have to quit, due to "medical reasons." As long as you put in a notice, you will get hired somewhere else. But if you need the money, you may have to start looking for less stressful work before you quit.

I work 10 hrs a day 6 days a week at a frozen food factory! It's always 40° or below there

What type of work are you currently doing? That can make a difference. If you are only 8 wks you should be able to pretty easily get another job.
