"Safe" is relative: While technically speaking, riding won't cause you to have birth defects or shouldn't cause you to miscarry, it does place you at higher risk for injury just by riding a bike in the first place. It is no secret that you are more in danger of being injured by riding a bike than by riding by car and you are putting your baby at risk should you fall off or get into an accident. Use your best judgement ...Read more

Is it safe to ride at a water park at 8 weeks pregnant? . ...what about a roller coaster? . ..I know it sounds foolish but I'm curious

Maybe not...: You should avoid any water activity where high speed water would be directed into the vagina because it can enter the uterus under pressure. This would be water-skiing, long water slides, cannon balls, etc. Swimming is ok. Roller Coasters are not recommended. Most amusement parks will have a sign at the ride that advises pregnant women not to go on certain rides due to high g forces. ...Read more

It depends: "Safety" on the rides is a matter of opinion when you are pregnant. Although the rides themselves are rated "safe" for use many of the rides produce gravitational forces that may initiate bleeding or cramping in pregnancy. If you are already experiencing cramping or bleeding prior to the trip, consult your treating OB MD's advice prior to departure. ...Read more
