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

In brief: 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.
