carnival rides & pregnancy
nearlymom posted:
I am twelve and a half weeks pregnant and last night I was at a carnival and rode the Tilt-A-Whirl. After I got off the ride, I saw the sign "No Pregnant Women on Rides". I had never heard of this before seeing the sign, as I am not a carnival frequenter. This ride spins you aroung a bit, so I did experience some centrifical force. The ride lasted about 5 minutes. I am now really upset and freaked out that I have done harm to my baby. (I have not experienced any bleeding, stomach pain, or other issues...) Help!!!!

If you haven't had any bleeding I wouldn't worry. Some rides are dangerous to pregnant women because they can cause distress and cause the placenta to detatch. I would contact your OB and let them know you rode the ride. They might want to do an ultrasound to make sure everything is ok. Don't panic, it's not good for you or baby! Congrats on your pregnancy. I wish you the best of luck and a happy and healthy 9 months!
