Does anyone know if it is safe to go white water rafting while you are pregnant? I would be 21 weeks when we go.



And, if you did do stuff on the water while you were pregnant, how did you get your life jacket to fit?

I would say no, personally. If white water rafting is what I think it is.

i dont recommend you do it because its very jarring especially if the current is fast. you should really consult your doctor about it.

White water rafting? My FIL told me to be careful going up and down the steps ha ha. I would just ask your doc.

no way! My mom went and she said it's scary as shit.. if you get thrown into rapids it's rather dangerous.. you could hit your head on a rock:shock:
Plus we're not even supposed to jump into the pool in case of vaginal infections and stuff..
I went kayaking , but that was in a reallly calm creek lol and I just put my life jacket behind me

Personally I wouldn't go while pregnant, its to much of a risk. IMO

Thanks everyone! I have a phone call into my doctor but it looks like I will have to pass on the trip (there is a class 4.5 rapid on the river we would be rafting on). Oh well........ it just sounded like fun.
