Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Anything you're used to should be fine. While I was pregnant with my third I routinely hoisted my 50 pound double stroller into and out of the trunk of my car.But, I'm a little confused about the wording in your question. Is it your hockey bag, as in, you play hockey? If so, I'd talk to your doctor about that. Even being a goalie, wearing lots of padding, it doesn't sound safe.
