Hi Moms,

How seriously do you all take the advice of not to lift heavy things? My doctor told me that the only risk is for by back, not to the baby but I've heard stories of women lifting heavy items and tearing away their placenta. This happened to my mom when she was pregnant with me and was on bedrest for months after lifting something heavy caused her to bleed heavily. I have a toddler who is 30 pounds and I feel badly telling her that I can't carry her but I don't want to put the pregnancy at risk. Do you all lift your older children?
