Umm yeah... Kinda for the same reason you should not ride roller coasters or amusement park rides while pregnant. Im sure there are many other reasons but the one I can think if is a separated placenta where it separates from the uterus wall and causes internal bleeding. Not worth the risk.

but it only said the rides becuz they stop abruptly....its jus like driving a car. should i go see a doctor jus in case

Your doctor is the best authority on what you should and should not be doing. If they are comfortable with it then have a blast, for me it's an unneccessary risk. Accidents do happen when we least expect them, no one plans to have an accident and go-karts afford little protection to the occupant. Driving a car/being in a car is a necessary evil. Go-karts are an uneccessary form of entertainment that should stop temporarily during pregnancy. There came a time in life where things stopped being about me and what I want or wanted to do, that time came when the pregnancy test said "pregnant". Now it's all about my baby, keeping him/her safe inside and outside the womb.

there was no sign that said anything so i didnt think anything was wrong...

Again, your doctor's input is what you need. Only he/she knows whether or not you fall into a high risk category. There may be no signs on the go-kart but unfortunately the manufacturer "assumed" that people would ride with common sense. Tragically that is not often the case.
Ask your doctor for their input. Obviously your friends are concerned about you and your baby to bring this up to you.
