My dd's approaching 3 and about 30 pounds. I don't carry her all the time anymore, but do it probably a few times a week. I just found out this morning that I'm pregnant. Today was a snowy, yucky day. I carried dd to her swim class and now I feel crampy. I think it's just normal early pregnancy stuff, as well as nerves about surprising dh with the news tonight, but I wanted to make sure it's not from the babywearing. Any advice? BTDT?

Congrats on your pregnancy! I don't think it is a problem to wear a baby throgh pregnancy but use your judgement. I wore my dd#1 all through my pregnancy in my Kozy (the last time I wore her was when I was 9 months and walking across the room wore me out - big surprise since i had an 11lb baby in there!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) - on my front when I could until I was about 4 months preggo and then on my back the rest of the time. I walked long distances with her across the campus where I go to school with no problem. I did, however, buy a storller (which I had not purchased before) and used that for long walks as well when my pregnant body just couldn't do it. HTH and what I found to be most comfortalbe was to tie the bottom strap under my bump and to cross the straps in front rather than the rucksack style.

I still carry my 34 lb. ds in the Kozy on my back, and I'm about 25.5 wks preggo. I have to listen to my body. Some days, 1.5 miles makes me really sore the next day. It does impress people <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

i regularly carried my DD in a high back carry in a MT for a large part of my pregnancy. regularly being at least 4-5 times a week, usually for at least 10-15 minutes at a time. at some point she was getting heavier and i was getting bigger, so it became less regular, and the last probably two months i didn't wear her at all.<br><br>
it shouldn't be a problem as long as you have a normal pregnancy. just listen to your body and don't push yourself.<br><br>
and congrats on the BFP!

I carried my large (95%) almost 2 yr old through my pregnancy in a sling and tie on, sometimes for long walks like when we were traveling. I tired sooner, but it didn't hurt. I even carried him in front with a tie on carrier, so I think it would be the same in a mei tai. People were worried, but we were fine. I felt better that he was close and not trying to get into things...and I was happy not to be leaning over to hold his hand while he walked.<br>
