stall cleaning

i keep arguing with my husband that I can clean out my own horses stall till like the 7th month of pregnancy but he doesnt think I should. I am about 14 weeks pregnant and babysit all the time. I tell him that its heavier to lift a 2 year old then it is to sift horse poop from a stall. I am concerned that soon he wont want me to do anything but sit on the coutch. This is our first child so I understand that he is being protective but how can I convince him that I will be fine and I can do normal things. I understand not riding while pregnant but I still would like to be able to care for my own horse.

Maybe you can bring it up at your next doctor visit. If the doc OKs it maybe your hubby will back off?

Just let HIM do it. If he wants it.

Is he worried about the lifting aspect or the danger of you working around the horse aspect?

Do you have medical restrictions on you?

That was my thought too.

If the horse is not in the stall, you can take your time and lift road apple by road apple if you have to!

Maybe you could clean the stalls, but he could dump the wheelbarrows?
