old wives tale

Does Climbing Stairs During Pregnancy Hurt Anything?

Dear Midwife,
Is it ok to walk up and down stairs? I was told that the umbilical cord can wrap around the baby's neck.

I'm 22 weeks pregnant, and I don't feel the baby move, is this normal?

Also, I have constipation, and when I have a bowel movement, there is a little bit of mucus when I wipe my behind. What is this?
