On Monday my son's school is having a skate party. I am worried he will not skate at all if I don't in in fear of falling. He isn't good at skating. So I was thinking about skating with him. Do you think it would a bad.idea? I am only 8weeks so my balance isn't thrown off by a big belly yet.

I would say no. I would not take the chance. A fall can be damaging at any stage in a pregnancy. Do you have someone else you can take with you to encourage him? Will they let you wear shoes and walk with him around the rink to make him comfortable?

Everything I've heard so far says you shouldn't do anything that poses a real risk of falling.  If you absolutely have to skate, I'd say you should hang on to the wall so that if you lose your balance, maybe you won't actually fall down... but even that seems risky.

he will have a couple of cousins there but they don't want to be hanging out with a little kids when they could hang with friends.

that's a decision that only you can make, but I personally wouldn't

I did when I was early on in my pregnancy. But when I fell I just fell on my hands and knees.

No!

You can walk next to him but there's no reason to be pregnant on skates.

I wouldn't. I went to the skating rink with my kids when i was around 9 weeks or so and I wouldn't skate for fear of falling. Your balance doesn't have to be off for you to fall and get hurt.

I wouldn't. Our skating rink allows parents on the rink in street shoes. If they don't allow that, they can also lock your wheels so they don't roll and you can walk with your son. For that matter, they could lock his and he may feel more comfortable on his own.

At 8 weeks I would.  There's not much you can do (aside from a car crash or roller coaster) that can do much harm at 8 weeks.
