does it hurt to raise your hands above your head or to stretch over your head?

can anyone in their third trimester even DO house work? Seriously, how do you do it? I am so dang uncomfortable and awkward, i can't bend over, and it hurts to be on my hands and knees.. i walk everyday, and i've been doing my housework like always up until this point, but no matter what i do, it's just getting harder and harder everyday!

It doesn't hurt the baby (is that what you are asking?) but make sure you don't hold your breath (involuntarily) while you do these movements. Told dh that NOBODY is doing house work, hope he doesn't see your post ;)

Dr told me although excersize is good, not to stretch up too high, for a long period of time, or suddenly, because babies cord can get wrapped around her neck.

that's an old wives tale..

Im 30 weeks and the part of housework I have trouble with is getting clothes out of hamper and out of dryer... bending over the belly to try to grab the socks that fall on the floor is becoming a nuisance. I have started doing laundry barefoot so I can use my toes to grab the sock and put it up to my hands. Daughters laughed when they saw me, until I made them take over the laundry...
