Just lurking. =) I was told if picking up your child or children was something you already did a lot of, it was alright to continue. I worked in a daycare when pregnant with my first so I automatically wondered about that. It's safe, just lift correctly. Your muscles will be more prone to pulls and sprains, etc.
I think it's fine but if I remember correctly my OB said last time to try not to pick up many things over 20 lbs or so in the last tri especially, so I might try to pick her up a little less towards the end. Luckily she's already in a toddler bed and very independant (she goes up and down the stairs on her own, eats at the table like a big girl, etc.) so it won't be too bad I'm hoping.
