Riding bike...

My hub has a bike and I've been dying to go out for a ride - I know once the baby comes we're not gonna be able too - Do you think it's alright if I go out? I'm 38 weeks and 3 days...

I wouldn't. It probably won't be comfy and people don't look for motorcycles when they are driving. My hubby rides he said he wouldn't take me while I  am preggers.

No don't think that's a good idea you never know what might happen... and your about to pop pretty soon so just relax you might get to ride later on

I'd say no, I'm in the same boat. I'm 33+2 but my ob said the bumping and jarring from riding could cause your water to break. Better hold off just a little longer. Gl!

I rode my bike with #1 until it was til uncomfortable to do it. And that was up to the third tri. 38 weeks will be sooooo uncomfy BUT if you take a slow spin around the block or your neighborhood/subdivision it won't hurt as long as he has a peephat on the back for you to lean against  and the seat is long enough for your belly to ride comfortably
