20lbs. is the maximum recommended, but how could I possilbly tell my 35lb daughter i'm not going to pick her up? My OB said not to even consider 50lbs, but picking up my daughter was okay, especially since i'm used to doing it. :o)

Lift with your legs, not your back and stomach. I still lift stuff but I know my limit. Listen to your body. Don't strain yourself to lift something. I have a couple times and I can feel it in my abdomen afterwards. Lifting does not cause miscarriages either.

I am still picking up my 42 lb. 4 year old. How can I not, when she comes to me with her sweet little hugs? Belly is starting to get in the way though and she understands that.
