Bending At The Waist

I'm 26 weeks, and I was wondering if it's still OK to bend at the waist on a semi regular basis (my job...). I've heard that it's not good, does anyone know why? Thanks!

I've heard it's better to bend at the knees. I think it's actually always better to bend that way anyway when you lift things... but I've found it difficult to bend at the waist these days and I'm only 22 weeks pregnant.

I'm 22 weeks also and bending at the waist it almost imposible. When something falls on the floor I dread trying to pick it up. My job has some lifting involved, but now I don't even try to pick it up if it's on the floor. Most of the stuff is over 15lbs anyway.
