Nurse and Pregnant


Now, I know a lot of nurses are on this I just need some advice.

I am currently 8 weeks +5 and I am physically drained.

I work 12.5 hour shifts with two half hour breaks. I have told my unit I am pregnant so the baby is not put at risk as on the ward I work on there are a lot of dependent patients and heavy and will push against you.

So I am out of my house 13.5 sometimes 14hours. I am completely drained. I am on my feet all day, I am busy, every time I sat down yesterday someone needed me. I never even managed to sit down and write in my notes. We have done a risk assessment in work, but more on physical manual handling rather than the fact i feel faint and almost pass out at times.
