Yeah, when I got preggo I had two horses in training, plus my endruance horse, plus two others to ride. I rode until I was five months along, then I almost had a wreck! It completly cured me of wanting to ride until after the baby was born.
After the baby is born, make sure that your system is ready for it before you start to ride again. A week after my daughter was born, apparently my system was a bit low on calcium. I handed off the baby to hubby and went to jump up on my mare bareback, when my torso hit her back, I broke a rib! I was so embarased that I didn't tell anyone for days - but a did have a great ride - if you call hanging on for dear life as my endurance horse who hadn't been ridden in months took me for a five hour gallop.
Babies might be a pain in the rear, being preggo sucks, they get in the way, but they are so much fun! And when they get older (about five) you get to have them go out with you! And that is worth all the inconviences that happen now. And when at 8 they start deciding that you are taking too long to get your horse ready and head off down the trail without you, your smile will rip half your head off.
