[QUOTE=tinker2222;1061499]I’m not too much of a ride person to begin with, I get motion sick & I’m afraid of heights:rolleyes:. But there are a few I really enjoy like the safari…I’ll miss that one. I do like just people watching, the shops and the shows, I’m sure I’ll be fine.
I’ve never took notice of the signs saying anything about expectant mothers, but now I will:happy: and I will most defiantly take their advice.
As for asking my doctor, I was going to. But I’m sure I’ll get some sort of blanket response,like “no roller coasters or jerking movement”
I’m looking at as this (experience) will be another ‘new first’ for me at Disney :happy:[/QUOTE]
My Ob did the blanket response, but I was also on kid #5 and he hoped to god I knew what to do by then. I got the “When in doubt, don’t” speech and the “If the sign says you shouldn’t, don’t” He’s a Disney freak too and said his wife usually sat out on the sidelines on those trips when beyond the 4th/5th month depending on the ride, some she didn’t ride at all at any stage of pregnancy.
I’ll admit, it was horrible and I hated being there quite a few times. I also have a slightly curved spine and bad varicose veins in 1 leg while pregnant. So I was in a lot of pain. I sucked it up and put on a smile and did it for the kids. I leaned heavily on the stroller within a few hrs in the heat and with all the walking. My family was great though and every chance they got shoved me into a show or a ride like Nemo so I could have a chance to have some sort of fun and cool off. In the end, I was glad I sucked it up and did it, I had fun regardless, and I spent WAAAAAY more money on frozen drinks and Coke than I do in a year at home. Btw…I could probably tell you what/where any and all clean bathrooms are in all the parks. :laugh::blink:
Now my motto is “If I can do Disney in late July while 8 months pregnant, I can do anything!”
