  • hell to the no!

    Falling is common during ski trips. You dont want to fall. You dont want to be going fast and hit a tree or something.

  • My OB said no. With the first kid she said it was okay and then when my second came around, she had had a patient who had an accident who lost the baby and so she told me no.

  • where on earth would you hear it is ok??
    falling is too common and could hurt baby.
    you can go to the resort or whatever and hang out, but anything that poses a high chance of you falling is a no-no.

  • I wouldn't worry about it for the first trimester as long as you're a REALLY confidant experienced skier and pretty cautious. Just know that there could be some risk... but hey, you could slip and fall on a wet floor or some ice too.

  • well, i am an experienced skier/instructor, and i am pretty cautious-falling is not something i enjoy doing....
