I refuse to lift anything over 10 pounds. But a general rule my doctor said is that when pregnant you should never lift over 25 pounds. Unless thats what you were doing pre pregnancy. I heard if you did a lot of heavy lifting, and heavy excersizing then it's okay to continue that but to never jusy start up doing those things during pregnancy.
Thanks! Wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy lol
I meant it's absolutely not unreasonable
Absolutely! Heavy lifting will put unnecessary strain on your back and hips and will likely cause some braxton hicks. Your joints are releasing a hormone called relaxin which makes them loose so you're more prone to injury as well. I was told nothing more than 20 lbs after 20 weeks. Occasionally I'll lift my step son for a moment or carry groceries but too much in one day is a no.
