You should be able to lift whatever you could before. I was working when I got pregnant last time and I had to lift things heavier than 50 pounds. It was fine for me.

I go by what I was comfortable lifting before pregnancy. I am also required to lift at work, and lift just the same as I did before. I just don't try to lift the 300 lb patients that are dead weight without atleast 2 other people helping. I haven't had any problems with either pregnancy due to lifting. My midwife has no problems with me continuing to lift.
You want to be a cashier? I just worry that your back and legs will hurt you after standing in the same place for long intervals of time. I know I would personally be more comfortable with a job that allows me to move around and occassionally sit. Thats just something to think about.
Most pregnant mamas of toddlers are in violation of that one every day, multiple times a day.
