Is it okay for me to stretch & lift things above my head? Many people have told me that I shouldnt be reaching so high up to get things. Is this harmful?

Unless it's something heavy that could fall on you or cause you strain, I haven't heard you can't reach up to get things.

No it is not harmful.Just dont hold your arms above your head for a long period of time.

I think it depends on your individual pregnancy. A co-worker of mine was about 3 months further along than me, and was able to lift heavy things (cartons of printer paper, etc.) up until the day she delivered, but I was told not to lift anything over 15 pounds.
