    If you had to strain your muscles to move it, you shouldn't...

    Definitely be careful what you are lifting I'm pretty sure that a sofa is a bit too much

    when i was having katie i was so cautious about lifting! i dont have much choice now, with a 9 month old to cope with too! 1st time round i wouldnt lift things like crates of beer, but i spend a good deal of time lifting and carrying katie who is over 10kg! so i just go by the weight of her in terms of lifting things now!

    Youre still pretty early on in your pregnancy chica and if youre having to strain to move it then I think thats too heavy...I wouldnt risk it,go easy on yourself :hugs:
    (Oh but also dont go into a panic now that youve harmed the little one,babies are very resilient xx) xxxx

    I've been told not over 25lbs unless its a child of yours which you don't have a choice about lifting. You are probably fine, but for the rest of the pregnancy I wouldn't lift anything heavy just to be on the safe side :)
