  • The only one who can answer that question is your doctor.

    I'd say, if you've been exercising or dancing since before you were pregnant, it's probably ok, as long as you don't over exert yourself.

    But ask your doctor just to be sure.

  • If you are not high risk, then it really should be good for you. Baby's are very protected while in your stomach! If you get tired rest, it is not like you have to dance the hole time. You may be sore the next day, but that is normal if you aren't used to alot of exercise. Have fun you are pregnant not dead!!!Lol

  • Go and have fun! At ten weeks your pregnancy (other than possible morning sickness and tiredness) shouldn't affect you that much. If you get sore, obviously stop, but otherwise dance the night away!
