Bowling while pregnant?

25 weeks pregnant should I call doctor and ask him or is bowling okay as long as I'm not really rough? Did you bowl during pregnancy? Did you have any problems afterwards?

  • I did it all the way till 8.5 months.. You have to be careful though. I never had a complication, just bad back labor which is normal for someone who having a 9 lb baby lol. Its a great work out too, helps strengthen your muscles in your belly ect. my doctor said it wasnt a problem ;)

  • My mom always brags about having her best ever bowling game the night before I was born (she was overdue though, and not 25 weeks).

  • LOL!

    It's not like bowling is a contact sport! I think the biggest concern would be falling down (but that applies to getting out of the shower too).
    I am pretty sure you're safe.

  • i bowled while pregnant with my second, i was passed 25 weeks and HUGE. i didnt bowl for long mostly because i felt like i had swallowed 3 bowling balls and just had to sit down all the time, i was miserable 2nd and 3rd trimesters with her! but i think you should be fine, if you start feeling uncomfortable just take a seat =)

  • Why not? It's low impact exercise. Just watch your balance or I can show you my signature move, the squat and push! HAHAHAHA!

  • Have fun go bowling! I bowled when I was pregnant with my daughter. I figured that the bowling ball weighed less than my son and I carried him every where!

  • Go bowling and have fun. We are going tonight and I am 40 weeks along.

  • yes, but be careful still. Your center of gravity will be different and if you are not used to bowling you can pull some muscles.

  • I bowled while pregnant and had no issues. I asked my doctor about it at an appointment once and he said I could continue as long as I was comfortable. :)
