  • yeh you should probably take it easy if you plan on having a safe old are you? like 17 and in high school? You have to decide whats more important taking care of yourself and your unborn child or cheerleading? the decision should be quite easy...

  • Well me being an teenage mom once I was in the same situition I ran track clean on up till I was 5 months preg but i was just stupid. But if ur body is used to something before getting preg ur body will stay used to it while u are just be very careful ur not very far a long yet so itll be ok.

  • My friend was 30, pregnant and still cheering. She had to stop at about 4 months I think for safety's sake. But seriously, whats more important, a life or a basketball game?

  • i know nothign about cheering. but i'd advise you to discuss the routine wiht your doctor. he'd be best able to tell you.

  • I suppose it depends on what you'll be doing. I would say you probably don't want to do anything that involves you being tossed or thrown in the air. But, you also don't want to be lifting other girls...what can you do then? Probably nothing. Do you want to be a mascot?
