Can you over do it? Brody&Stella 2 kids; West Virginia 128 posts

This might be a dumb question but I'm going to ask it anyways. Is it possible to over do it when your pregnant? I'm 16 weeks 5 days and I'm a stay at home mom, I don't get out during the week because I live in the middle of no where! But anyways I went grocery shopping today then played outside with DS all afternoon and now my mom want to go on a girls day shopping all day tomorrow and I'm just worried about maybe doing too much. I'm I going to over do it or should I just enjoy the energy to do so while I can? 

Thanks Mamas :)

Walkin around a lot isn't really over doing it, you can over do certain things like lifting too much, etc. You should be fine :)

Going shopping isn't going to over do it.
Trying to do Olympic weight lifting would be overdoing it.

I don't think that there's anything you can do as a SAHM that will over do it.. there's people who do physical labor all day, everyday while pregnant. You going to the grocery store isn't going to put you on bedrest all week Unknown

Shopping and the grocery store aren't over doing it. Overdoing it would be like trying to do a marathon when you haven't trained. There is no reason for you not to go.

I don't know...I mean, caring for another child when you're pregnant on it's own is hard.  I'd think anything other than that could be overdoing it.

It is possible to over do it but I think you will be ok. Enjoy it because right now, I don't feel like doing a damn thing.

I know that little kids take a lot of work...I think.

And straightening my hair takes a lot of work.  That pushes me right into the "overdoing it" category

Haha this made me laugh of course going shopping and being a sahm isn't over doing it while pregnant. I'm a waitress, do all the house work and take care of 3 kids and even that's not over doing it!
