Can lifting heavy objects in third trimester cause placenta abruption ? Does it affect the baby in any way or just affect me ?

In brief: Not likely

In general lifting objects does not cause problems for pregnancy but obviously if something is too heavy for you or makes you uncomfortable then it should be avoided.
