  • I was 8 months on at Halloween time once too. If I were you I wouldn't because you never know what could happen if something startles you bad enough.... but that's just me because I play on the safe side. It's really up to you.

  • having my 5th in jan, i am going to tell you why it is a bad idea~! Not only could it scare you into labor, when you walk thru a haunted house, you are jam packed, and if someone freaks out, they could run into you, or knock you down and trample you! In st. louis our haunted houises are HUGE and there are at least 40 people touching you at all times! Plus, if you had an emergency you cannot get out of there quickly! EVERYONE is screaming, so you wont be noticed! Good luckj, but bad idea!

  • I say no. Im almost 7 months pregnant and im worried about the dark and tripping and if someone scares me bad enough that I would go into labor. Lol. But seriously there's a lot of risk for falling in a haunted house, I wouldn't chance it!

  • i was almost 9 months last year for halloween, i wanted to go one but i stayed home and passed out candy. i didnt want to risk someone pushing into my belly or falling.

  • unless its lame and all the lights are on.....then no, you shouldn't go, its just not safe, but you know how you are. If you are a bad ass and don't get scared and punch people in the face if they get to close like I do (just joking, but when pregnant anything goes) then go for it. You aren't just protecting yourself you are protecting your unborn baby. there is no rush to go and get the crap scared out of you when there will be just as many haunted houses next year and you can get a babysitter and go have fun with nothing to worry about. good luck, just be careful...if you do go...go with alot of friends and make a pact to surround you to protect you and the belly and have some sort of signal if anything happens. ALSO take a flashlight. and FYI depending on your location and scare level they might not even let you in when they see the belly....good luck

  • It could be harmless, but I wouldn't. I think baby feels everything you do, especially when adrenaline is involved. You'll have a million more chances to do those things, why not wait for now?
