  • I wouldn't. Hard bumps and jolts like that aren't good. And an accident could be catastrophic. You could do it and be just fine, but why take the risk? So, like I said, I wouldn't.

  • NO way!!! My mother in law was in aminor accident just a little jolt at 6 mo. preg. at 7 mo they found a blood clot on the babies cord the size of a fist and had to deliver the baby right away. Luckily he was ok but it took a lot of time and the Drs didnt know if the baby would make it. I wouldnt take a chance, its not worth it.

  • An activity that could pose a risk of falling on you stomach should be avoided. You probably should avoid it because those things have been known to turn over and people have gotten hurt from riding them.

  • besides everyone just bashing you for the question i grew up on a farm and that was our favorite thing to do but you do have to be really really realy careful or just stick to paved roads and dont go to fast i use to go on the roads and my son was fine itswas the only way you could get from one family members land to anothers cause we couldnt take the trackers and well papa wasnt about to let us use his truck lol ..... i wouldnt suggest the whole in the woods thing but paved roads would be ok but talk to you dr first and ask them what they think ...

  • Thanks iloveyall2008, i do not mean that i would be riding in then to try and get hurt or anything they do not go over 15 miles an hour only have two gears, and a samari is just like a tracker, it actually has the same motor... i live in a place that is all farms and a construction land fill, a rock queery and a blasting site. there is nothing else to do i live an hour outside the city of cincinnati in ohio.. everyone knows ohio is all farm land.... if you have nevr done it you wont know
