The answer to your first 2 questions is yes.
She can drive and do her routine work.She can also continue working as long as she is comfortable. Just make sure that she doesnt do any heavy work/lifting/bending etc in the 1st 3 months.As far as food is concerned,she can eat a normal balanced diet.No restrictions as long as her blood sugar and blood pressure are normal.High protein is recommended.Continue folic acid till 12 weeks.
