My husband works 90 hours a week if we include travel time. He works hard and earns enough for us to be comfortable with me staying home full-time. So today, when it kept snowing, I threw my winter stuff on and headed outside to shovel off the sidewalk and driveway so he wouldn't have to worry about it when he gets home late tonight. I was CAREFUL to make sure it was all done with my arms and I didn't feel anything in my back or stomach. My mom found out though and FLIPPED OUT at me that I could have strained myself without knowing. I was really careful not to but now she has me worried. She told me I should be babying myself and avoiding physical stuff.
Which, I can't fully do since I have a 1yo that weighs 30 pounds already and refuses to walk on his own... and a 3yo that weighs 32 pounds and begs me to hold him all the time. I'm always lifting something or someone!
And now I'm freaked out. Ugh. Do you baby yourself while you're pregnant??
