No safe limits have been established as a guideline for lifting (or moving) weight during pregnancy.

This means that you can move furniture in the first trimester, but after that I don’t recommended.

If you do move furniture, make sure you know how to protect your back so you don't get a backache.

Bend from the knees and keep your back straight when lifting.

If your back muscles are weak and you have a very large, protruding abdomen, a maternity belt can provide valuable support.

But it would be best to enlist help instead when you need your furniture moved.
