  • My midwives told me "nothing heavier than a toddler." That was with my second pregnancy, no one told me not to lift anything during my first, and I was a housekeeper... I lifted all kinds of crap lol.

  • I was told if your body is already accustomed to it, then there is no weight limit. I worked on the ambulance when pregnant with my first and was lifting heavy patients all day long... I was worried about how that would affect baby but my ob said as long as my body was already accustomed to it there would be no problem. Just don't do anything your body isn't used to, or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
