I just found out I am 3 to 4 weeks pregnant. I bowl every monday night, I just wanted to know if it is ok to bowl still or I shouldn't do it? I have had a previous misscarrage but 2 years later a normal pregnancy.

  • if you have a history of miscariages, i think you shouldnt. then again you should ask a doctor.

  • I was doing kickboxing when I found out that I was pregnant. I decided to quit (for other reasons) but my doctor said that if you have been doing it for a while and its like routine or whatever your body is used to it so it's totally fine.

    I'd say go for it. You bowl every Monday..your body is used to this stuff :) No worries.

  • I bowled through my first pregnancy, and did GREAT! I was much more limber. lol just really awkward closer to the end.

  • I think if it's something you are used to doing, it's not a big deal, and it's actually good to be physically active to a point. Check with your dr to make sure it's ok, but I wouldn't think it would be a problem to lift a bowling ball.
    How much does your ball weigh - like 7 or 8 pounds? I carried around a 24 pound toddler while I was pregnant with my second daughter, and no one blinked, lol.

  • You should be just fine, your body will tell you when you need to stop doing it. I worked out/weight lifted up until 8 months when my body let me know that I needed to stop. I was starting to get braton hicks more frequently, so I stopped, and they stopped (as much).
