    idk if it's normal.. my youngest is 3 right now and i lift him no problems. Make sure to lift with your legs , not your back. It could be the way you stand after you've lifted him, pulling on the ligaments in there..?

    Not too sure but I have just been doing a lot of house work today, Lifting the vak up and down the stairs etc and I have had a few niggly cramps. Call your MW if you continue getting pains

    I lift my 40 pounder and haven't had any bad pains and I am 37 weeks...I would talk to your doc or mw just to make sure.
