  • it's too risky...the bumpy ride could put you into preterm labor and also there's a risk of falling and hurting yourself and the baby. sorry, you have to wait until after you've recovered from giving birth.

  • I do it anyways, just if it gets uncomfortable or a bit of pain kicks in, I stop.
    It seems like you can't do ANYTHING while pregnant! To me it seems like you have to stand in a 't' position for 9 months with just sleeping, eating, and some walking..
    Ugh, I hate it..
    I say do it, just be extreamly cautious about it.

  • Horse, big no! Jet ski, maybe if the water isn't choppy I don't see how a lil ride could hurt you so long as you take it slow and don't do anything stupid. Listen to your body
