No lol
Humans are meant to carry babies. If you couldn't bend over you'd see no pregnant women in the workforce. You'd see no mothers pregnant again. I have 2 kids and I bend over about 5,000 times a day. Lol
Now that said, bending over gets harder for sure. Lol

I'm 27 weeks and it hurts to bend over. Just to pull my pants down to pee hurts lol. But I don't think it hurts the baby. If it does, I'm sure the doc would say not to.

Agreed. If you're going to hurt anything bending over..it'll be your back...try your best to sqaut when possible just to take the pressure off your back and hips, but baby is fine.
