  • Yeah ur doc will tell you to continue your regular exercise and activities until u physically cant anymore. I was kickboxing until I was 6 months. I was very very big I had a 9 lb baby and she was born 2 weeks early. Just make sure u know that a ball isnt gonna hit you in the stomach and u dont do any crazy slides to a base or something.

  • Generally speaking, unless there's some medical reason not to, you can continue any regular pre-pregnancy activity, and it's recommended that you do so to stay active. You don't want to start anything new without talking to the doc, and you don't want to be playing any contact sports or anything, but running bases is good for you. :-)

  • you are all probably correct, but I actually stopped playing when I found out. softball can be safe, but there is contact. my league is a slide league and I play second. i am always getting run into. if you are a catcher and play with a slide rule, i would seriously consider stopping. but in the end, you and your provider should make the decision.
