Unless your doctor has specifically notified your company that you are not to work more than 8 hours a day, you are to be treated as any other employee and not singled out for special treatment. If you don't want to work overtime and/or if you feel you are unable to work overtime, then I suggest you have your doctor write a note to that effect and you hand it in.
A lot of working women "fought" long and hard to be able to keep working while pregnant, not because we really wanted to, but because our money bought the food and paid the utility bills at the time. It wasn't all that long ago when pregnant women were forced to quit work or had to use the "back hallways" so as not to make visitors and customers ill because they had to look at a pregnant woman walking down the hallway. Times have changed and we certainly don't want them to go back to the way they were now do we?
I hardly think being forced to work 13 - 14 hour days on a 9 - 5 job while eight months pregnant constitutes the "fight" for women's rights. I appreciate your taking the time to read and answer my inquiry, but I've read several of your responses to others as well and I suggest you change your nasty approach. If my exhaustion and football-sized swollen feet jeopardize your "women's lib" then please forgive me.....
I apologyze if you think I "sounded" nasty. I suppose I sounded that way because when I read your original post, it appeared as if you wanted special privileges just because you are pregnant. I do not know your particular workplace but common sense should tell you that your doctor would have been your first resource for help in getting your overtime hours reduced.
I certainly do remember and sympathize with you on the "side effects" of being pregnant, particularly through the summer months!
Ask your doctor for a note specifying that you are not to work overtime. It is a shame that your employer obviously lacks common sense and consideration.
