    Default Vet nursing and pregnancy?

    I was just wondering, if there are any vet nursing Mums out there. If you were on the job while pregnant, how did you deal with surgery. I know xrays are out completely (vets always ask if Im pregnant yet before I help with them, just to make sure. They wont let me do them once we start trying again)
    But how did you go with actual surgery with the anastetics and such?

    I was a vet nurse, and as soon as we decided to start trying for Hayden, I left and found a government job. I just couldn't see myself staying safe with all the heavy lifting and poo and angry cats.

    I miss it like crazy though. Will get back to it one day.

    Was a vet tech with all my pregnancies and I did fine. We didnt do xrays but everything else went as normal. I did do lifting but that is not suggested but my dr said since I Was lifting before as long as I was careful and not trying to lift 100 pound dogs by myself I woudl be fine. The ony other thing I didnt do is handle the cat boxes as that is a big no no.
