Could b****t milk supply decrease when returning to full time rigorous work?

I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant now and this has been a concern for me. I have 12 weeks FMLA and I work as a machine operator for plastics and my boss depends on me a bit too much. When it comes to the fast jobs they always assign me to them since no one else can do it as well. When they gave the other employees a chance, they got backed up and parts were ruined. I'm just worried with all the stress could it take a toll on my b****t milk supply in which I won't get enough milk out from the b****t pump or my baby won't be fed enough to be full. Especially being back to lifting and pushing heavy objects. Should I have formula on the side just in case? There is no part time at my job and very rarely there is light duty depending what machine they set up which requires less physical activity. They wouldn't dare adjusting special hours just for one person. The company is a monster all they care about is making their margins/profits, money money money.

Honestly everybodys milk supply is different. With my first, the stress of being a first time mom and having to return to work after 12 weeks, (I had an office job) and blah blah blah.....My milk was low from the get, looking back Im pretty sure my daughter was starving but I was to stubborn to feed her formula.......

Yes, stress can certainly decrease your milk supply. Be sure to eat lots and lots of calories and to drink lots of liquids and when it is time to pump, try to relax and look at a picture of your baby and picture the baby feeding from you and that will help a lot!!
