Bending over

Is bending over bad for baby? I'm almost 8 months along and I keep having to pick up stuff around the house.

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.

It's fine, if it starts causing pain though it's time to stop. Just listen to your body.

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 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.
