We've been trying to get pregnant and I don't know yet if we were successfull this round. I was given free tickets to go to our local amusement park and love to ride all the rides. Would it be a huge risk to go right now?

It's up to you. There are some women so said they rode the rides when they knew they were pregnant and nothing happened. The signs on the rides at my State fair all say do not ride when pregnant, even the tame ones like the merry-go-round. Personally, I wouldn't risk it.

Very early in the pregnancy the embryo really doesn't have much mass to be affected by the rides. I was about 8 weeks pregnant and went to Disneyland and rode all the rides (which granted there aren't a ton of violent rides at Disneyland, but you do get shook around on the roller coasters) and everything was fine. But it is up to you and how much risk you are willing to take. Heck, my mom was 7 months pregnant with my brother and riding the flume and roller coasters at an amusement park and he's fine. I wouldn't recommend that, though.

I suspect it is more than ok. Plenty of women go to amusement parks before they know they are pregnant. I would avoid the ones with jarring forces if it were me. Be sure to not get super exhausted and stay hydrated.

If you are high risk, or have been trying for a long time, I would talk to your doctor beforehand.
