  • She does not have a disease, she's just pregnant. Of course she should continue doing whatever she wants unless the Dr. told her otherwise.

  • As long as she is not high risk, she should be fine. There is a woman who is about 30 weeks pregnant who rock climbs at the gym I go to and I have seen articles about women running marathons while they are 30+ weeks pregnant. Being pregnant doesn't equal being disabled.

  • Yes,unless she cannot bowl without beers

  • How do you think pregnant women take care of their toddlers? A 2 year old is heavier to lift than a 12 lb. ball, right? And bowling balls don't kick when you pick them up.
    Geez. Were you wrapped in bubble wrap your whole pregnancy?

  • Of course, unless she is extremely high risk or supposed to be on bed rest (in which case she shouldn't be doing anything).

    Btw... interesting screen name.

  • YES!!!

    Answer by older at 8:37 PM on Oct. 13, 2013

  • Is she using herself as a bowling ball? If yes, then she should stop.
    If no, then she should carry on with her life as usual, unless otherwise instructed by her doctor. She is pregnant, not broken.

  • Yes it is safe for her.

    It is also for her to worry about and take care of ....

    Why are you asking ? Do you think it is not ? Did she already go ?
