1- Is there any truth about not lifting heavy weights while pregnant? Fede is always wanting me to pick him up, but he weights a good 26 pounds....

2- It sounds strange, but it is as if he

Mari- Even though I only have David, I do have a friend who potty trained her son sucessfully this summer. I think it took her about 3 weeks or so. She is pregnant with #2 and due in September. So, it is possible to potty train while pregnant. Her son is a little older though, he turned 3 in March.Not sure if that would have anything to do with it though. That is why we are trying to have David potty trained by the time we TTC #2 so I don't have to worry about potty training while I am pregnant.

1 - I think every mother worries about this, and I would say that every mother breaks the "rule."

I'm sure everyone will have different opinions on some of this stuff, but here are my answers:

1- Is there any truth about not lifting heavy weights while pregnant? Fede is always wanting me to pick him up, but he weights a good 26 pounds.... As long as it's not hurting you to pick him up, I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are times when you just have to pick your kiddo up, I definitely carried James around all the time when I was pg. with David.

2- It sounds strange, but it is as if he
