If there is a reason, your doc would tell you - just being that late in preg is not a reason though... Housework (light) is no problem no matter what stage of pregnancy. I vac'd the house when I was in labor - no harm, no foul...

I knew one woman with a history of multiple miscarriages who wasn't allowed to vacuum during pregnancy. Not all vacuums are equal, though, mine is self-propelled and really easy to push.

I mowed 20 lawns a day up till 4 months no choice, and was fine now I am 23 weeks.

I don't really understand why vacuuming would be dangerous. You are just typically pushing it around, and not really carrying it. I don't know why of all things someone would have told you this, unless you are a husband or someone else that is being hosed by your pregnant partner or friend? But I've personally of all things to avoid doing never heard of vacuuming being dangerous in a typically routine pregnancy.

My mom told me that I should vacuum if I wanted to go into labor...that was when I was 36 weeks, though, and had already had a difficult pregnancy; I would've tried it, but I have hardwood floors, so don't even own a vacuum. Ask your doctor.
