Is it safe to use a riding lawnmower during pregnancy?


Billie - March 14

I think so but why would you want to?! (lol) I would ask the doctor just to be safe though.


Mrs O - March 14

Yes. I mowed all summer long with my 2nd preg. I like a neat yard so I mowed alot. I had a very healthy baby.

Well, I hope it is ok.... I know I'm wierd, but I like using my weedeater... (my neighbors wife says I need to stop because it makes her look bad!) I've been being careful, going slow, limiting myself to 2 tanks of gas...

I'm sorry if I insulted anyone. I don't have the green thumb so I don't do yard work. Not to mention... I live in an apartment. I also don't have plants because they always die!!! Like I said, I'm sorry if I insulted anyone. I didn't mean to!!

I agree who would want to! I act like I don't know how to do any of those household chores so I won't have to.

I'm with you Billie and Julie... lol!

That's what men are for.. we have the kids they mow the lawn. Isn't that the way it goes??

Okay who's mowing lawns??? I still have my snow shovel outside! I'd give anything to mow instead of shovel snow!!!!!!

Yard work is for the boys. :o) I'm terrified of bugs, so you'll never see me anywhere near a garden or flower bed. Mowwing the lawn??? Forget about it! I can't stand the vibration on the handle of the lawn mower, it makes me want to scream. I'm wierd, I know. Thank goodness my hubby and I have the understanding the outside is his, the inside is mine. :o) As for the original question, I have no clue, but it sounds harmless.

I would be leary if you are close to your due date but not in the safe delivery zone as the vibrations and bumpiness from the mower could cause early labour.Just a suggestion!!

I wouldn't know. I am still ridding our snowb__wer. I can't wait to mow the gra__s!

For those who's husbands are away in the military there are tasks that need to be done. I am 8 months pregnant and would love to mow the lawn, if I could get the mower started!!!!

What about the noise of the lawnmowers? I have to use earplugs to protect my hearing - sitting on the tractor may transmit loud noise to the baby, no?


X - April 11

Hire someone to do it for you? Ask a friend/relative for a little help?


Mary - April 11

I love mowing my lawn!
