Yes it is safe to go bowling. I lifted weights and did 5 days of cardio up until the day my daughter was born. The only time it may be an issue would be if you were very pregnant and big and your balance was off. You wouldn't want to fall while bowling and hurt the baby, but that would be very far into your pregnancy. At 15 weeks it would be no problem....at least that is what my doc would say.
My use to be on a Bowling league (guess it was the thing to do back then..lol) anyway she always tells me when she was prego with me she would bowl her best game! Could not cross her arm over her belly so it had to go straight down to the pins!
Maybe you will have the same luck :)
I am 5 weeks and bowl on a league I was just wondering what you ladies thought...I wanted to make sure if it was safe or not.. my ball is 11 lbs but just got a new one that is13lbs..what do you think??
I am on a league, and plan to continue bowling through my entire pregnancy (the league ends the week that I am due). I am currently 14 weeks and loving my league. It's just about taking extra precautions (using a light ball, moving slower) and taking it slow. I joined a ladie's league this year so that it wasn't such high energy and much less smoking (they all smoke outside). I have bowled for years, so it's only natural for me to continue (plus, the exercise is good for me). I have talked to MANY women who bowled through pregnancy and most said that their games IMPROVED because they couldn't reach across themselves!! I bowl a curve ball, so keeping my arm straight is SOOO important, I look forward to kicking butt this year ...
i am 5 weeks and my husband and i went bowling with some friends last night since i probably wont b able to do much once i start getting morning sickness. i used the 8lb kids ball and did what my mom called "modified bowling" (i carried it up to the line, THEN threw it, instead of walking fast and swinging the ball around like most people do). i only bowled a 50, but i had a blast anyway!!!!
