I do this ALL the time!!! I forget I can't bend over and I get that same sharp pain (literally takes the breath out of you). You only hurt yourself. Baby is safe.
I agree, you likely hurt yourself and not the baby. I have to spread my legs in order to bend down, lol and I'm only 18 weeks.
You probably just hurt yourself. I always feel like I'm going to break one of my own ribs if I bend over. It's always better to squat and bend from the knees.
Try bending at the knees and keeping your back straight.
:) thanks for the reply!! I'm just a paronoid mother-to-be!
Dont worry! You are not going to hurt your baby by bending over!
