I never even thought about what to do about symptoms when pregnant…shows you how my brain was during 3 pregnancies. What do you do for a living? I think the reason that work wasn’t an issue for me was because I was working in positions where I was constantly moving (my first one I was a bookkeeper for a gas station, second I worked in retail, and third I was a preschool teacher). I cannot imagine taking medication while pregnant as I had “morning sickness” (I called it all-day sickness) for my entire pregnancies, not just the first trimester. You will do great no matter what you decide just make sure that the doctor prescribing the medication (if you choose to take it) knows that you are pregnant. Good luck with your pregnancy! You will do great!
