When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Strongly discourage: The national transportation safety board stated “personal watercraft have no braking mechanism. They coast to a stop, and while coasting, there is no turning ability.” tom ebro, president of aquatic risk management stated “what makes personal watercraft so ultra-dangerous is the fact that it will not steer when you suddenly have a surprise and let off the throttle.” jet skis are rudderless. ...Read more

I ride my bike for exercise, can I still do this during pregnancy?

I ride my bike for exercise, can I still do this during pregnancy?

Yes, with caution: The main worry with riding a bike while pregnant is the risk of falls. Be sure to wear a helmet, and try to ride carefully. As you get closer to term, balance may become enough of an issue that you stop riding for a while, but until then it's great exercise. Good luck! ...Read more

Go for it: As long as your obstetrician has no concerns, you can exercise at the same levels as you did prior to your pregnancy, especially in the first two trimesters. As long as you have no underlying medical issues, it is healthly for you to keep your fitness level up thru your pregnancy. Just make sure you keep up with your hydration and nutritional needs.

Now that I am older and ride roller coasters with my kids I feel nauseous and have veritgo. Why does this happen when I used to do it fine?

Now that I am older and ride roller coasters with my kids I feel  nauseous and have veritgo. Why does this happen when I used to do it fine?

Roller Coasters: Are unnatural...Let me be upfront here...I do not like them. They are dangerous. When you were younger they were not as fast or steep or jerky. Roller coasters can precipitate stroke in some people. As we age (yuck) our necks and vessels are more prone to injury from all that jerking and the force of the coaster is making you nauseated, etc. ...Read more

I am 11 weeks pregnant can I go bowling?

I am 11 weeks pregnant can I go bowling?

Sure: The risk with bowling is failing as the lanes are slick. At 11 weeks a fall isn't likely going to be an issue. Your baby is well protected. Later because of balance issues it might be a good idea to avoid bowling or just change your approach. Even if I can't convince you its safe, you can always walk up and throw the bowl instead of the usual stepping and sliding. ...Read more

Why do I have to wear a helmet when I ride my bike, even on the country roads?

Why do I have to wear a helmet when I ride my bike, even on the country roads?

Protection: A fall from a bike can occur in any circumstance. In urban roads it might involve another vehicle which is less likely on a country road. But hidden hazards are present, and a fall off the bike can cause serious injury without a helmet. It is simply good self protection to always wear a helmet when riding a bike. ...Read more
