Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

This is a question that doesn't have a definitive answer. Many women have worked physical jobs right up to birth - from construction work to driving to phys. ed instructors .

If you are just driving a truck and not involved in heavy lifting you should be fine, just takes lots of exercise breaks. At 6 months, you are not close to giving birth. If your pregnancy is uncomplicated , there should be no reason not to but closer to pregnancy should have you closer to home.

Also - check with your doctor or midwife.
