Should You Find Out the Gender of Your Baby?
While another of the life-altering experiences of having a child is finding out the age-old question—boy or girl—many parents choose to take advantage of modern-day imaging and find out during the second trimester more about the child they are expecting.

Being Pregnant at Work
For women who work during pregnancy, deciding what changes you need to make to your routine can be a challenge. Obviously your physical health will affect how you cope with daily work routines.
If your job includes heavy lifting, standing for long periods, or extra long hours, you should talk with your doctor about the best ways to adjust your work routine. Be sure and take a few extra breaks to accommodate any overly strenuous work and definitely let your supervisor know ahead of time so they can help accommodate your needs.
