  • When i was pregnant with my first daughter about 7-8 months i mived my bed n dresser and ripped out my old carpet (had hardwood under) and my daughter is perfectly heathy . U should be careful u coould hurt urself but ur baby should be fine they are pretty safe inside thier lil water beds. I dont recomend heavy lifting or pushing but i think u n ur baby should be fine.

  • We moved when I was about 4 months along, and everything was fine. The dangers are more for you than the baby, because relaxin can make you prone to injury, you're more easily winded, you can get light headed, etc. Try not to do anymore heavy lifting, and listen to your body. You'll be alright!

  • It is mostly to save your back for labor. As long as you didnt strain too much, your baby will be fine. It wouldnt hurt the baby, just make you go into labor if it was too much... so if you feel fine, then dont worry about it. Even at 34 weeks your baby would survive! So just relax :)
