  • Yes. Make sure you have a life jacket along in case something happens.

  • I dont see why not.. as long as there are not any sudden stops or anything. The American Pregnancy Association website has lots of info.. they may have a direct answer.

  • Sure you can, just wear a life jacket and stay hydrated . Wear comfortable clothes and shoes maybe a sun hat. Have fun!

  • Oh honey you will hear alot of stuff people think you shouldn't do.. It is getting ridiculous.. We are pregnant, not helpless or handicapped..

  • I don't see why not.

    Even the restrictions on flying are because either you don't want to be too far away from your doctor late in the stage, or the airline doesn't want to risk having a birth mid air.

  • I went on a cruise when I was pregnant ... flew to the state where the cruise made port on a plane ... after driving to the airport in a car ...

    I'm assuming you're not talking about a cruise ship but something much smaller? I did that too. Just be safe, smart. You're pregnant, not helpless like a PP said.

  • Yes you can be on a boat. I was on a jet ski and I was 4 months pregnant.
