    Does anyone have any recommendations for lawn mowers? I want something small and lightweight that I use while pregnant.

    Thank you xo
    How big is your lawn?
  • I've just bought a wheeled rotary mower , spear and Jackson from Argos.£70. It cuts like a dream and is very lightweight only 8.6 kg I think. It even makes stripes as there's a roller underneath. Argos show the weight of all mowers they stock, which helped my choice as I have a bad back, so one easy to manoeuvre was important.

    You are diversing, people.  I have had 4 kids, never used any special mower.  At the moment, (nah no pregnant) got a classic push along, electric one.  In the past (yes, was pregnant) a mountfield petrol, none gears AND quarter acre of garden, then a geared mountfield, I could never start!

    I couldn't fit in the front seat of our Mini Countryman 😁
    I had a Mini Countryman as well!  
    When the baby was born we put the back seats down, put him in his pushchair and put the brake on, that’s as much baby safety we had in those days. 
    I used to go out with my friend who’s baby was born at the same time, we had identical pushchairs and they sat side by side in the back.

    @Lyn ... I remember taking at least 10 Scout cubs out in our elderly Volvo estate, most of them packed tightly into the luggage area where the dogs usually were 🤣

    I think all pregnant women right now will be sitting with their feet up avoiding any kind of activity that might end with a hospital visit.

    We used to pile all the kids in the village in the back, always had an estate car,  we had National trust family tickets,  so what if I had 10 kids, that’s my business 😀😀😀

    No offence @Rik56, but we're well aware you dislike grass.

    If the OP already has it, I don't think they're going to be rushing out to remove it, as per @wild edges' post... ;)

    I did all the mowing when I was pregnant. The handle provided somewhere to rest the bump...
