    Advice - Lifting things

    Hi all, I only introduced myself today but I have a really important question to ask everyone. Is it dangerous to an early pregnancy to lift heavy objects ?????
    I will start with a little blurb so that you understand my question.

    My husband and I are TTC #2. Upon my husbands request, I am not allowed to tell anyone that we are TTC. But today I went to a friends house for coffee and she asked me to lift a heavy table so that she could put a drop-sheet underneath it to stop the spillage of any teak oil.
    I did, because we have only been TTC since the end of April, so I haven't even reached my ovulation days yet !!!
    I used my legs of course to lift it, but it has put a big strain on my body.
    Gosh, the silly things we do !!!

    I know that exercise in early pregnancy is ok, so I would think that lifting things is also alright. Having said that, I am in no way an expert, and if you are really concerned maybe you should check with you Dr just in case.

    Hi Rebecca

    It is usually only in later pregnancy that lifting heavy objects is a concern. Well that is what I have always been told anyway

    lol....isn't funny what us mummy's get up to while pregnant!!

    Yes, I remember feeling very sensitive when I was about 7 months pregnant with my first. I knew exactly when I'd lifted something that was a little too heavy!

    Thankyou for your advice "Luke's Mum"... you know I would never even think twice about lifting something....but when you know there is a little baby that you so desperately want, your decisions are foremost for that person.

    Thanks again.
