Snowboarding...

Okay Soooo please dont judge me i just need some serious opinions. Exercise is healthy when pregnant, yess....I'm 20 weeks now and I'll be 22 when the mountain opens and I have a pass already.so wondering if I take it easy and just take some powder runs and stay away from the park or anything like that would it be safe to ride for a few weeks? Not the whole time obviously. This is my first year I won't be able to ride and its tearing me apart and i just wonder if I'm gentle if I can do it.

As long as you're careful, I don't see any reason why not.

Oh, well, I think if you ask your doctor (which is the best thing to do), they may say this is not a wise risk to take.  It's not just your ability to be safe that you have to worry about but those around you.  My family went skiing when my sister was around as far along as you were.  Someone ran right into her and knocked her down the mountain. She had quite a scare.  it turned out alright but it could have been disastrous.  I slid down the stairs when I was 17 weeks, not super hard. I got right back up.  I didn't fall forward on my belly but backward on my bum.  I wet on about my business.  About 4 hours later, I began bleeding bright red blood.  I was put on immediate full bed rest.

I just wouldn't risk it.

I would ask your dr first. It would kill you even more if you went snowboarding n somthing happened to the baby. I would b to scared to take the risk.
