Pregnant/Work

  1. I am 25 wks pregnant and I will be starting my orietation Jan 3rd. How should I approach starting my journey as a new RN and about to be a new Mom? Is it to much only getting 2 and 1/2 months up under my belt and then taking 2 months off for the baby? HELLLP

    No, you will do fine. Just remember to take a deep breath and smile when you think you just can't do it. I have had to start jobs at that point in pregnancy and while it is always stressful, it is doable. If you are going to twelve hour shifts - make sure to pamper yourself on your days off! If you aren't, make sure to get your pampering in the evenings! You will need it!!! (I would also recommend prenatal massage, if you are on your feet for twelve hours at a time near the end of your pregnancy it is well worth the money!!!) Best of luck!:icon_hug:
