Its safe: It should be safe to take a ride in a 52 foot yacht while you are pregnant at 25 weeks. The major danger to your pregnancy on such a trip would be too much alcohol and the company you keep. Sounds fun! Best wishes!

Totally safe: Even if you get sea sick, the developing baby is well protected and will not be affected by being on a boat. Enjoy the trip.

See your OB: This can be very serious in pregnancy. If you haven't you certainly need to see your OB doctor ASAP and definitely prior to the cruise.
