I think they advise against roller coasters or anything where you will jolested or jerked around.

It also has to do with the g-force and gravity

so many people dont even know they are preg. at 2 mos. My dr. let me ski until 5 mos. my friend was told she could ride the coaster in disneyland and she was 4 1/2 mos. both drs. said you have so much cushion this early. Its great to be careful, but some r way to paranoid. (i understand especially if is ur 1st. Im on my third so u tend to lighten up. :) good luck

from the American pregnancy a__sociation: What is the concern with amus____nt park rides during pregnancy? Disney, Six Flags, Busch Gardens and even your local state fair all pose warning signs not to ride certain rides during pregnancy. Although there are no studies doc_menting a problem with these types of rides while you are pregnant, there are no studies doc_menting that they are safe either. The concern with roller coasters, thrill rides, and virtual rides during pregnancy is a__sociated with the rapid starts and stops, the jarring forces, and the pressures against the body that occurs during these types of rides. This rigorous activity creates additional jarring forces within the uterus that may lead to premature separation of the placenta from the wall of the uterus, which is called placental abruption. The jarring force from even slow automobile accidents has caused placental abruption, miscarriage and other complications for women who are pregnant even when the trauma is not directly to the uterus. Although the jarring force is usually less with amus____nt park rides, it still warrants precaution. Although there are women who have been pregnant and ridden the various thrill rides without complication, it is a risk that should be avoided. Amus____nt parks are good at identifying rides that pose risks to pregnant women . The safest course of action is to play it safe and avoid the rides that pose a risk; you can always return to the park and enjoy the rides after you deliver your baby. source: http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancyhealth/amus____ntparks.html
