Here is an article that describes common pregnancy pains and what you can do about them.

When pregnant, you are more prone to back strain because pregnancy hormones soften your ligaments and joints. You will want to make sure that you are lifting in proper form to lessen chances of strain on your back. However, you should speak with your doctor to make sure that you are not putting yourself or your baby at risk by continuing to work, and he/she may also be able to give you advice on when you should look for a job where you won't be on your feet all the time. Your health is very important so if you are feeling exhausted and your work is taking a toll on your body, it may be time to consider looking for another job soon. Please let us know how you are doing!
