Makes sense. However, I started looking at speeds for some of the rides (my 7 year old was curious) and I noticed that the Disneyland roller coasters are pretty slow. The Matterhorn tops out at 27mph, so 2 miles faster than the school zone. That being said, I also noticed that one didn't have a pregnant advisory. Splash Mountain I have ridden before and it is not jarring, even the drop, and tops at 40mph. Space Mountain tops out at 35mph. I can understand the g force argument for the super fast coaster that hit 60+, but for these relatively slow coasters it doesn't make sense to me.
Or is it the adrenaline surge? Any ride that advises against pregnant riders also advises against riders with heart problems. Is that the connection? Motion sickness?
I ask in here because it seems you guys in here have a greater understanding on how pregnancy actually works and not the old wives tells and ridiculousness that gets posted elsewhere ( FYI- yahoo answers is a terrifying place). Obviously, women who are high risk or have specific issues would have different considerations, so I am really just asking about your run of the mill pregnant ladies with normal, low risk pregnancies.
And, to reiterate, I am not a roller coaster lover. Regardless of my pregnancy situation, if the 1 year old can't ride it, I'm not likely to ride it.
