Any pregnant/once pregnant floor nurses who are high risk?

I found out that I am pregnant and high risk, but I am worried about the toll that floor nursing will have on my body. I have a history of 1 miscarriage and 1 loss at 17 weeks r/t incompetent cervix.

I currently work on a busy orthopedic floor. In my head, I think it will be a less physical strain on my pregnancy if I move into school nursing, or case management.

Any advice? should I change positions if the opportunity arises? What other nursing jobs will be less physically demanding?

TIA

How will changing jobs at this point affect your insurance? Would anyone even hire you? Do you work full time? Are you in California?
