mowing the lawn

Do you think there would be any reason why I can't mow the law this summer while I'm pregnant. I actually like mowing the grass and it gives my husband a break so that he doesn't have to do it when he comes home from working all day.

  • I think you could mow it as long as your comfortable. I think puch mowing a ditch or something that would require motion like heavy lifting could be to hard but during pregnancy you should be able to do your normal physical activities.

  • I mowed mine until I was 8 months pregnant and I was due in July. So, I think you can but make sure you take breaks and drink lots of water

  • Just don't do heavy lifting and make sure you stay hydrated.

  • If you do it normally it should be no problem. No heavy lifting or jerking. Be aware of your movements

  • As long as you're already active, and your body is used to that, you should be fine. Just listen to your body- if you start to feel like it's too much, STOP. If you go beyond that, you can get light headed. Make sure you drink plenty of water. I rode my bike til I was 34 weeks, and was lifting weights well into my pregnancy. Also helped to keep me from gaining much weight! =)
