Cutting hours due to pregnancy

I’m 26 weeks pregnant. My work has cut
everyone’s hours, but they all have been
there hours back, except for me. They
have me at 9 hrs a week. I talked to my
co manager a few weeks ago and was
told it’s because my doctors note saying I
can’t work more then 30 hrs a week or 6
hrs a day or lift more then 25lbs. Is this
considered pregnancy discrimination?

There is no pregnancy discrimination case here. The company is trying to accommodate you and comply with your medical restrictions.
Each case is different. The other pregnant women who got additional hours probably had different medical restrictions than you with which the company complied.
