Since its that season for hauted houses and hay rides and fright fest at six flags my DH really wants to go. Do you think it is safe to be jumpy and scared while pregnant?

Hello, how far along are you? Unless you are like due any day now, I think that would be okay to go out and have a little fun...I would skip the hay rides/roller coasters, etc but going out and to the haunted houses should be okay (just make sure to extra precaution and be careful that other peeople dont bump into you and hit your stomach)

Sounds like fun! I hope you have a good time!

I do think I might avoid the hay rides, too, like htma4494 suggested, if they're over bumpy ground (the grass as opposed to asphalt). I'd consider that a little risky. If you do decide to do it, sit as close to the front (near the tractor, or whatever's pulling it) as possible. Still, on a wagon, I'm not sure that would help. Although, if it's at Six Flags, I guess it's possible that the hay rides ARE on concrete or asphalt rather than grass, in which case I'd think they would be fine.

Have fun!

Oh, but in response to your original question, I think jumpy and scared while preggo is fine.

I heard on the radio this morning that you shouldn't go to haunted houses while pregnant. Fumbling around in the dark, tripping hazards, smoke/fog machines are not good to inhale, high blood pressure, and in some cases has caused preterm labor... I'll try to find the article they referenced and post it.

I think it also depends how jumpy you get in general over such things. I LOVE horror films, haunted houses, being scared, so I've been experiencing these things since I was about 5 years old and feel a bit used to it. Haunted houses don't affect me like they affect some others. While some people may be cowering in the corner and unable to look at scary masks and props, they don't bother me. They actually fascinate me because I look at how I can potentially duplicate them for my own house on Halloween. Therefore, I intend to participate in some scary events this year.

However, if you're more jumpy and frightful when you see scary things, you might have some of the concerns raised in the previous post. I'd go by how you normally react.
