A good rule of thumb is 'if it hurts don't do it'. Bending is hard to avoid though, bend your knees and squat with a straight back instead. Your pelvis and lower back will thank you for it.

Instead on bending over bend the knees and so you’re squatting down. This is fine until you get to about 32 weeks and then it’s easy to get down but virtually impossible to get back up again

Does it harm the baby on the Internet I saw that it says to much bending could cause premature labour
