  • I would think as long as you are in good shape and only floating along with no problems, it should be fine. You should probably check with your doctor or nurse to be safe.

  • What? Your question doesnt make sense.

    Do you mean safe?

    No it's not okay, it's very dangerous. If it's not recommended for a pregnant women to go a secured amusement rides why would it be okay to go tubing down a river?

  • How smooth is the river? Here in Missouri, we float the Current River all the time, however, it can be very treacherous depending on the water level, if it's rained, etc. Plus, it's always full of partying young people. I, personally, would not do it and would not recommend it.

  • NO!! You don't know what could happen. I was really cautious when I was pregnant and just gave up a lot of stuff until after baby. He was way more importantto me then three hours of fun.

  • Depends on what kind of river it is. Slow meandering one would probably be fine. Wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water and wear a life vest. Super fast turbulent river is not a good idea.

    You have to check it out and use your best judgment.
