Quoting .Colleen.:" I have a very unpopular opinion about this Exercise is good for everyone."


I agree to some extant but what about people like me that have a hard time walking.... my pelvis feels like something is making a wish. When i'm having a good day I don't mind walking, it's just on those days i'm in pain. I would like to just get in and get out. Not walk a ton to just fight the crowd in the store to get one item.

We have like 1 at the mall and everyone uses it. It does make me mad when no pregnant or mothers with 10 year olds use it. Some pregnant women can only be up and walking for a certain amount of time and the new mother wears off I'd say by 3ish months. I don't use it anyways.

:!:
They have them at the mall here, but I never used them when I was pregnant. It's not like I was dying, I was perfectly capable of walking the distance a non-pregnant person would.

I'm from buffalo. It gets seriously hard to push a cart in unplowed parking lots...they come in handy for that for sure. Yeah exercise is good for everyone but try pushing a full grocery cart through 6 inches of snow pregnant! The closer your car the better!!

I was thankful for those spots when I was pregnant. (before bed rest) Walking too much gave me swollen feet and legs and contractions. So even though I still had to walk through the store, I didn't have too far to walk when I got out. I always wished my college had those spots lol. It was also good after I had LO. If he was sleeping, I would leave him in his car seat, and that damn thing was heavy haha.

I never thought I was entitled... I was just a raging b***h when pregnant and got pissed when some punk ass kid would park there and I had to pee or something lol. I was not the most rational pregnant woman ever.

Quoting .B.:" We don't have them here anymore, but I always parked in them pregnant or not. Being pregnant isn't a handicap so I really didn't care"


I agree it isn't. But some pregnant women do have more issues while pregnant with back and hips moving around to accomodate baby. My second kid would make my legs go out, and my back numb.

Pregnant women aren't disabled
I only used them when I was on bedrest because nobody would let me do anything :x
It was close to the store or dropped off :roll: and thrown into a wheelchair.. sigh.

Quoting Jo&M:" I'm pretty impartial about them. I only used them at the end of my pregnancy with DS, because my sciatica ... [snip!] ... to be as short as possible with a baby. I get pissed when I see baby less men park in them just to stay out of the cold."


This is pretty much me. My legs would give out on me after walking only a short time with my son. And he was a winter baby, so I utilized them alot back then, when available.

Exactly some over weight people get to use a Handicap tag because they have a hard time walking and moving around and causes pain in their hips and legs.... no one says anything about that.... but if a pregnant woman is having a hard time moving around and and hips and legs going out... they throw a fit about it.

I rarely used them because I had a basically easy pregnancy and could walk fine. I used them a couple times after I was taken out of work and told to rest but by then I wasn't out at stores a lot anyways.

Id rather have a pregnant woman bathroom stall, OMG. Nothing worse than standing in line 9 months pregnant with the bladder the size of a grape.

Also, it's hard because I'm an expectant mother, but you cant really tell yet... so it's hard to know when others are using them inappropriately

I think exercise is good for everyone and did so all during my pregnancies but there comes a point when you're 9 months pregnant carrying a 2 year old when it sure is nice to park closer, especially if it's pouring down rain or in the middle of winter and you don't want to slip on ice. Pregnancy is not a disability but I think there needs to be more common courtesy toward pregnant women, what ever happened to holding open doors or offering to carry something? People are just rude, I can

True its hard to tell. And you daont have family bathrooms where you are. We do here we have a bathroom that has a play thingy in it attached to a room with benches so moms can nurse, then you go through another door and it has stalls one side with little toilets oneside with big toilets then a section with urinals for dads.



Its a shared male/female family bathroom.
Then we have the regular bathrooms then a hanicaped bathroom, then another bathroom that is famil as well but it has 2 toilets in it, 1 small one big, a lot of pregnant woman use it, its always empty lol.



This is at our big mall.
