For those of you with other children, are you still lifting them? DS is 4 and a half. He is very lanky and about 40 pounds. Before getting pregnant, I carried him a lot still. I really love carrying him, but I don't think I should as much now that I am pregnant. I probably lift him and carry for about 5 minutes each day now. I guess I will ask the doctor in 2 weeks. I have heard if you exercise a lot prior to getting pregnant than it is okay to keep exercising while pregnant. I am wondering is this is like the same thing. My body is used to lifting and carrying him a lot.
