Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your pregnancy with tips on exercise, eating the right foods so that both you and your baby get the right nutrition throughout the pregnancy, and regular check ups like ultrasounds and pre-natal examinations to monitor your baby’s development.
Just be careful and listen to your body. If you are strong and healthy you should be fine (if you lift properly that is) I don't think that nature would let us have kids so close if we weren't able to at least lift them every now and then. Take care!!
I understand you...I feel pregnant when my toddler was only 10mth...really still only a baby...they are only 19mth apart! It was very hard and I suffer severe morning sickness (more like all day!) to so I end up in hospital too! I spent most of my days and nights cuddled up to the loo and it made it harder having my little baby there hanging around me wondering what mum was doing! I am just glad I have a great hubby who helped out tremendously while managing to still work full time (shift worker). I also had an almost 4yr then too...so I had to try get him to kindy as well!
It was rather tough and thought I would never get through it at time...eventually when I did get over that I got bad varicose veins and they hurt so much and it didn't help when my little girl wanted to be nursed all the time but I had to put my foot down some days and even though it broke my heart I knew I had to do it.
If you need to pick your toddler up maybe you could try nursing her sitting down or ask your doctor the best way to pick her up...maybe get her to stand on a chair or lounge first so she is closer to your height.
All the best!

i have a 18month old and am 31 weeks pregnant with twins so i understand what you are saying, i still pick her up how can you say no but i do limit it and i am very careful when i pick her up with bending my knees. also she is in a bed and has been for about 4 months so this helps as i dont have to lift her in and out of a cot which i dont think would be that easy
