Picking Up Toddler At 15 Weeks

Hi everyone! Does anyone know about what time during pregnancy you should stop lifting up items about 30 lbs? My son is 30 lbs and wants to be picked up quite often. I am 15 weeks pregnant. Should I stop now, or can I wait?

Really you should try your best not to pick up anything/one that is heavy as soon as you find out your expecting due to it putting more stress on the growing fetus...I have two children..4 and 6..Luckily the 6 year old is a little big to be picking up anyways..but my 4 year old still likes it when she is upset..shes over 30 pounds..just be careful, and try to get your son in the habit of coming and sitting on your lap instead of picking him up..we all have to break that habit sooner or later anyways

picking up your child is unavoidable it is a every day thing they tell you not to pick things up that you cant tollerate I work with heavy equip all the time so i am use to it but the doc says to avoid it as much as you can but only 30 lbs if you are comfortable with it and it does not cause pain then i would not worry about it but i would talk to your doc and see what they say about it your doc is the best one to ask because he can give you his recomendations and no one elses because every ones doctor is different
