Re: Can you ride roller coasters etc when pg?

I frequent Disney World and a forum dedicated to it. This question gets asked a lot (And I went at 17weeks preg 2 years ago, so I've been in this situation. Hopefully will be in this situation again this year )

Many midwives and OBs have said the same thing - the risk is placental abruption (tearing away from the wall of your uterus) which can happen due to G forces & sudden starts/stops. Bumpy rides usually just make you very sick so they are also listed as no-goes, presumably so that they don't have to clean up vomit from women in their first trimester

Water slides are a no, because there's no way to be sure that someone won't come feet first down the slide before they should, and slam into your belly.
