How long would you continue to play a contact sport while pregnant? I played college ice hockey and now play in a mens rec league. It's non checking but still contact. My stomach and pelvis are covered with padded gear.
I'm 6 weeks today and I think as long as I feel up to it I'll go till about 10-12 weeks? I know a couple women that played for the 1st 12 weeks. I feel like as long as I'm not showing at all there should be a little natural padding too. I'm thin and this is my second baby so I'll probably start to show pretty early. If it wasn't for the potential "contact" I would play much longer.
What do you all think? Would you stop playing the day you found out you were pregnant? 6 weeks? 8? 10 or more? Do any of you even play contact sports?
