Being a pregnant working mom isn’t easy but it is doable.

Here are some hacks to help you get through the worst of it:

Stay hydrated and keep a snack handy.

Wear compressions stockings if you are on your feet at your job.   Your legs will thank you.

Choose maternity clothes that will still work for work post pregnancy.   You won’t go right back into your pre-pregnancy clothes.   Pick up a few professional flowy tops that don’t scream “I Am Pregnant”.
