  • I wouldn't chance it. There is a reason why the post don't ride if you're pregnant.

  • No, it's not okay. I had a friend who had been ttc for about 3 months. She went to a fair and rode one of the roller coasters. The next day, she found out that she was about 8 weeks pregnant and lost the baby because of the roller coaster.

  • until 16 weeks (approx) it's perfectly safe to do ANY of those things. The baby is still below your pelvis at this point, and will be for weeks to come. It is perfectly safe

  • I wouldn't risk it. Rollercoasters are pretty rough on a non-pregnant person as it is.

  • They're talking when you're showing. If you have a belly that can get squished in a shoulder harness then no,don't ride,but 9 weeks is safe IMO
