Lifting when pregnant

Patient

Q: Can you injure your baby lifting things? I am 11 weeks pregnant and about three hours ago I pushed quite a heavy box of garden furniture into my garden, then I lifted the contents out and carried it to my patio. Now I am worried as some websites say you shouldn't lift whilst pregnant. All I wanted to do was to put my garden furniture up and I was the only person in the house as my husband works. :(
