  • Yep, go for it. The only thing I would watch for is cats like to use flower beds as litter boxes, so if you see any cat poo make sure to get someone else to clean it and wash your hands really good. Otherwise have fun!

  • When I was pregnant, my doctor told me I could continue every activity I'd alway done routinely...as my body was well conditioned to do so. But he made a point of not taking on any new activities.

  • Just keep cool and hydrated. I was cutting grass in the heat when I was like 6 months and started feeling really sick. I made it inside to the AC and then passed out on the floor from heat exhaustion. It was pretty scary.

  • If you are physically active in other ways then yes. But if you're a couch potato and decide the whether is nice you want to garden I wouldn't do it.
