Is it safe to ride a hot air balloon while pregnancy?! I would be 4 months pregnant at the time of the event?
Yes: In the second trimester of pregnancy, a woman is not too big nor very off balance. Thus, she should be able to move about fine and get in and out of the basket without a problem. Riding in the hot air balloon should be just as safe for her, whether she is not pregnant or is 4 months pregnant (assuming she is having a normal pregnancy so far). ...Read more

"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
Motorcycling mothers: Do you have alternate means of transportation available to you such as walking, biking, or a public bus?

I recently found out I am pregnant. I have a trip coming up to Universal Studios Orlando which I will be between 6 and 7 weeks (from the start of my last period) pregnant. I would like to know if it is safe to ride the rides at the park?
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
