I have had a miscarriage last year.. When I was 5weeks pregnant..

Shreya Singh

better take rest... def... no heavy lifting... pushing... picking... bending too much also not advisable...
squat if necessary

Sonam patel

if you have a history of miscarriage do talk to your gynaec about this.. as you can't afford to do work taking your health at stake.. better to take it easy and have rest..

Ankita Rishi

dont lift heavy objects and if it have crossed 3 months with no complications u can do all the work..i have been doing all my home chores alone without maid..it keeps me fit and gives me strength to carry on with the pregnancy

Ankita Rishi

but dont pressurise urself..take test when required

Ankita Rishi

I also suffered a miscarriage earlier ..but this time n fine n doing all the work except lifting heavy things

zahra firdous

yes absoulty. i was a working mother durimg both my pregnancies. its good to be active. infact after spendimg 8 hours at work, i used to come home and make dinner and clean home. my shift was from 6am to 3 pm. i didnt have any maid. and i worked till 2 days prior to my delivery. but then all bodies and pregnancies are diffrent. pls take a go ahead from ur gyno abt ur activity level.

zahra firdous

Thanks Harneet :) yes I'll check with my gyno ones
