Hi,thanks for query.As long as you are comfortable with this there is no problem.The fetus is very well protected inside the uterus minor pressure will not affect it.Please avoid undue pressure on it.When lying down please lie on your left side as it improves circulation to the fetus.
wishing you good health and all the best for the time to come.

Hi Rizwana
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
That is not a bothering issue.But see that you don’t apply much force on your abdomen.Avoid strenuous work.
As you are a software engineer and you may be having sedentary lifestyle , keep in mind that you should take frequent breaks every 1 hour.Walking in the breaks , taking adequate water would be great as it reduces leg swelling also.
If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care .
