When are you supposed to stop lifting above your head in order to decrease umbilical cord entanglement??

That is an old wives tale. According to my OB (and many many many websites) there is no risk to the baby of umbilical cord entanglements by the act of raising your arms above your head. Good thing, like we don't have enough stuff to worry about!

I've never heard of this. I thought it was an old wives tale. At 20 wks my mom wouldn't let me clean out my kitchen cabinets. She said I shouldn't be reaching!!!! I was like, um, yes I can! She's like 70 and had 8 kids and back in her day, you were practically on bed rest your entire pregnancy. I don't do anything differently than before I was pregnant, except some common sense stuff. No bungie jumping and what not :)
