  • I don't see anything wrong with the staying in a tent part, but I really don't think I'd go riding 4-wheelers. There are no seat belts and it's all bumpy and off-road, right? It just sounds like there are too many opportunities to get seriously hurt.

    This is from a lady who went water skiing, and rode coasters til I was showing too much, so take my opinion or leave it.

  • Gosh, I would never do that while pregnant. I would be too nervous that something would happen, a freak accident or something. Sleeping in a tent would fine.

  • i say go. and have a great time. just be careful and maybe not hit every mud hole available. maybe even take an old pillow to hold on your belly for extra support.

  • IMO i wouldnt go 4 wheeling, its bumpy and what if it flips or something happen, i just had a friend who died 4 wheeling. I would be to worried for my baby.

  • I agree with don't go. When you're a mom or pregnant you have to think differently than before kids. You don't know until all is said and done that nothing will happen until baby is born.

    You're about half way through, spring and summer's almost here and so is baby. Go then as a present away from baby for the day or overnight.

  • honestly i never ride four wheelers because i am scared of them, but if you are used to it and good at it, then i think it is fine.

    in one of my pregnancy books, there is an excerpt about doing sports and activities you are used to featuring a woman who is a skiier. she thought her OB would say no skiing but she told her it was fine, just to do the easy hills.

    so that would be my advice, don't do anything crazy, just do the easy stuff. like i said, i don't know much about four wheelers so don't really know the risks. :)

    the camping i think would be just fine

  • My doctor told me no. We go to the atv trails in my area. However, my sister in law went with us and she was like 8 months. I wouldn't chance it. Too risky. Not worth it. If something were to happen you can't undo it. Good luck.

  • idk lots of people run and bike ride. i would still go hiking and stuff. i guess as long as your not riding over 30 you should be fine

  • I went four-wheeling when I was about 24 weeks with my 1st. I had a blast. I just avoided the rough bumpy and if I couldn't I went really slow. Just don't over do it and stay on it all day. Rest often and drink lots of water if it is hot. Have a good time!
