What is the weight limit for lifting objects? I am 8 weeks along and I just went to the doctor but with all the nervousness I forgot to ask him at the time.
I just thought of it after the appointment because during the appointment I was just so nevous and excited that it slipped my mind. It will be another month until my next appointment and I don't want to wait until then to ask. My job involves lifting boxes and such, that is why I am curious.
I was never told about any lifting restrictions by my doctor. i am now at week 33, everything with my pregnancy has been normal and healthy, and I lift 40lb boxes on a daily basis as part of my job. But if you're really concerned, call your doctor before your next appointment.
I am now 28 weeks and have been lifting things as heavy as 45lbs since I found out I was pregnant; I work on a farm. I've been lifting things this heavy for the past year before I got pregnant so my body was really used to it. I asked my doctor and he said your body would tell you if it was too much.
