  • If it is hurting you, you need to stop doing it so much. At 15 weeks your uterus is growing and stretching so the pain you are feeling is most likely round ligament pain which is not harmful to you or the baby but can be uncomfortable. Try and cut back on picking him up. 30 pounds is just a limit they don't want you to exceed but everyone has their own personal limits you need to be aware of.
