  • According to Knocked Up, you're not allowed to jump on trampolines. That is a huge bummer for me.

  • I ride horses and am 19 weeks preggo...but anyway. Don't drink, smoke, drug (everything the PP said...sorry, can't give up my horsies :P) No other restrictions. You can run you can pick up your other kids you can go swimming, etc. I HATE it when pregnant girls are like (I can't ____...I'm pregnant *whine*) it really pisses me off. Pregnancy is not an illness, Geeze.

  • Best way to know the answer besides the obvious is to talk to you doctor. A lot of what you hear is just 'old tales' people pass down due to their own bad experiences. I have seen a woman carrying twins run across the parking lot of a gas station...she knew she could do it and gave birth to healthy girl twins at the expected time where as I have seen women scare themselves into bedrest because they listen to the horror stories. Talk to your ob/gyn and they will let you know what is best.

  • no diving into pools, no roller coasters, no drinking/smoking/drugs, no saunas/hottubs, no skydiving, no douching, no tattoos(most wont even touch a pregnant woman), some foods are no-nos, no heavy lifting.....you can dye your hairs/get nails done -- just make sure you are in a well ventilated area

  • They say you can go on in life like you usually do. Just cause you're pregnant means you're banned from things...it's just common-sense stuff. No skydiving, no drinking, no drugs lol

  • Here is what I don't do while pregnant. I don't do most of these things anyway. :)
    No meds unless it was a life or death situation. Not even cold meds. No drinking, drugs, smoking. I avoid all chemicals that I can. I never drink fluoridated water (www.fluoridealert.org), but I make damn sure I don't do it while pregnant. No water slides or jumping out of air planes. ;)
