Should be fine. My doctor instructed me that when I go to pick up LO to have her stand on something so it is less strain on me when I was pregnant.

But as far as safety for the pregnancy, I am sure it's fine. Many of us have done it before."</blockquote>
Oh my goodness. Im glad y'all are okay! Thanks for the warning.
I lift my boys. They are 5(43lbs) and almost 4(36lbs). Im 36w tomorrow. I dont really carry them anymore because its uncomfortable for me. But i still hold them and everything.
I'm 22 weeks and my daughter is 18 months and just under 30 lbs I think. I still pick her up but I would just say listen to your body. Every once in awhile my stomach muscles get sore and I can tell I've been carrying her too long or too much. I try to pick her up from a sitting position more that straight from standing. It's hard on your back if you don't lift right either. It's unrealistic to say you'll never pick your child up, but like I said, just listen to your body. Everyone is different.
Quoting Dawn&Leila +1?:" My DD is 40lbs. I just found out that I'm expecting. Is it okay for me to lift her and/or pick her up? TIA."
i didnt carry my daughter the first 3 months and only carried her periodically throughout my pregnancy but the last month i was too big and tired for her she is aboutl 34lbs so i would say play it by ear and how you feel..
