Hello ladies, I was just lurking and wanted to reply to this particular concern. I was working in a high volume restaurant while pg with DD #1. I found that if I kept my pockets full of healthy snacks, I managed ok. I gained over 60 lbs that pg, so in the end I think it was good that I stayed and worked on my feet, had I left, I probably would have happily sailed into the 80- 90 lb weight gain!
There was one time, however, that I was pushed to the edge. We had a particular gentleman who was a regular. He is a quadriplegic, and needs his entrees liquefied in the blender, so his wife can spoon feed him. The only time I waited on him, I was very pregnant, and he ordered Shepard's Pie. This story is not meant to make fun of this man, or to judge him. I say it purely in terms of one pregnant woman pushed to her pregnant edge, serving, smelling, helping, and cleaning up a particularly visual meal, I am even a vegetarian. mmmm good times.
Best of luck to you!
