  • I was 20 weeks when I brought my niece to the local fair and I just opted NOt to go on any of them.. just in case. :( now I am 32 a mom to a 3-1/2 year old, I brought him to the local carnival last weekend and apparently I am too old to go on the rides because I felt sick just watching them and the tilt a whirl.. please, I almost threw up- getting old sucks lol~

  • I wouldn't ride any of them. Why not avoid the risk?

  • the reason is some rides are too rough, the pressure of going too fast can cause too much pressure on your uterus.. (the force is different than that in a car).. the bumps can also be dangerous to a baby..
    look at it like an egg.. if you shake it too hard or put too much pressure on it bad news for the egg

  • I think most of them would be pretty safe, if your pregnancy is progressing normally, but personally I wouldn't risk anything with any high speed spinning or bumping around. (It's possible they wouldn't let you on anyway).
