  • The general rule that dr.s will tell you is that any level of activity your body is used to is safe to maintain through pregnancy. If you have been doing it then there is no reason to stop! Have fun, it will give you something to do over the next 9 months :)

  • I went bowling while pregnant all the time, until it started to get uncomfortable. Since you are used to it, you should be fine as long as it doesn't make you uncomfortable.

  • I bowled my best game ever when I was 8 months pregnant! It isn't a high impact sport or anything so you should be fine. I played in a kickball league for the first four months of my pregnancy.

  • I am also on a bowling league, I have bowled all year, with my 13 pound ball and I have been fine. I am almost 31 weeks pregnant.
