to some extent, it depends on what you're asking. I take lessons, im green, on wtc. Im not jumping or asking anything crazy. IMO better I get some small bit of exercise than sit on my arse in this heat and do nothing. And honestly, the more you take away from a normal life, the greater the chance of unhappiness in mom. Were there not some studies about maternal mental health impacting the baby?
That being said, im pretty sure one of our friends still rode her motorcycle while pregnant...thats just nuts to me, especially given how crazy other drivers are. I guess its just all about your comfort zone.
