It's not bad for you. I bend over constantly at work and at home. I'm 36 weeks now. The doctor took me off work today but bending isn't going to stop with a 5 yr old who won't pick up after herself is in the house. I can't breath like the lady above and my boy hates it but he is protected by the womb.
I bend over and it's hard to breathe and I don't think my baby boy likes it. Even if I lean forward, he starts wiggling and pushing me. But, I don't think its bad...just uncomfortable.
It's fine, if it starts causing pain though it's time to stop. Just listen to your body.
I hope not. I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old and I'm 31 weeks pregnant. Um always bending over and squatting and stuff. I have never heard it is bad. If you can still do it without hurting yourself its probably fine.
