So i just took a pregnancy test and it came out positive!!! And of course i leave at 4:00am tomorrow for Cedar Point Ohio!! Im very torn on if i should ride the roller coasters tomorrow. Im still soooo early, and normally woman dont even know they are pregnant right now. I have talked to MANY docs. and they are seeming to come out 50/50.....any suggestions?
I found out I was pregnant about a week after I rode all kinds of rides at Universal Islands of Adventure. I was fine. I did end up m/c that pregnancy but it was like 5wks later when I did and it didn't have anything to do with the rollercoasters. I think the warnings for pregnant women are those who are visibly further along.
did you end up having a sono before you miscarried ? And if so did they say you were ok then? And did they say it wasnt the costers? Im just very nervous b/c i have had 2 m/c and then a successful pregnancy. My prior m/c though were genetic, my body didnt even flush out, i had to get DNC's But i talked with one of my g/f today and she said that she rode rides at 2 months and was fine and then one of the nurses i spoke to said she rode a roller coster at 6 months!!
If you're nervous and not sure then don't ride. For your own peace of mind, would you even be able to enjoy it? I found out I was pregnant a week after riding. Two weeks later I had an u/s and they found a nice strong heartbeat. A week and a half later, I started bleeding and the heartbeat had stopped. If it was related to the rollercoasters, I wouldn't even have made it that far.
I also had the chromosome abnormality with both my m/c's. I was just kinda wondering what people thought!! Im sure i will be fine, seeing that i can only be about 3 weeks (i JUST took myself off of b/c at the end of July) and most woman dont even know they are pregnant at this time.
I had this same question a few weeks back. I had a trip planned to go to Sea World with my family and I LOVE roller coasters, but I was 6 weeks pregnant at the time and opted not to ride any coasters because I just didn't want to take any chances. My family did not know I was pregnant (except for my husband), so I didn't want them to be suspicious. They did think it was a bit weird that I didn't ride any big rides. I did ride the log ride because it wasn't jerky or anything. Felt like riding in a car. I am now 9 weeks and everything is fine.
My 1st pregnancy I found out I was preggers the day AFTER i went to six flags and had ridden everything. My son was born very healthy and is still very healthy to this day...but personally if I had known I was preggers I wouldnt risk it.
I agree with everyone else when I first found out I was pregnant my family and I had already planned to go to disney world and I was about 6wks and even thought some of those rides weren't dangerous I didn't want to risk it either so I just rode the mellow ones. like everyone else says if your not sure yourself don't do it.
let me share this story, because i am a woman of caution. i gal i worked with was 8 weeks pg, we all went to las vegas for a dental class. she rode a ride on the top of the stratosphere. at her next dr appt that baby had died at around 8 weeks. maybe it was the coaster, but that is a chance i couldnt take. just in case. maybe you could redirect your trip to another place?
