Is there anything wrong with boating while 6 months pregnant? Is it safe if I'm just sitting on the boat. I'm not planning on being pulled behind the boat on those inflatable water tube things.

wow...either no one has advise or I asked a really dumb question without realizing it. But, I guess it doesn't matter. I went boating today anyway. My real dad owns a pontoon boat that doesn't go very fast, but I still wanted other peoples opinions about boating while pregnant.

I can't see that they would be anything wrong with it at all. It is quite a scerene (sp) way to travel, and we can fly up to the third thrimester which leaves us opoen to turbulence. I guess the question might come in if you were rowing as it might be too much exercise and too straining, but so long as you take it easy i couldn't imagine it is dangerous.

when I was 5 mos preg with my son, I went boating. The water was choppy. I ended up breaking my tailbone. your pelvis area softens and loosend during pregnancy... so it happens easier. I, personally wouldnt do it... but I have bad luck when it comes to injuries. I seem to injur easily.

My husband and I boat every weekend, and I think it's just like everything else - common sense prevails. You know, if it's rough out, don't go! That kind of thing. My doctor seems to think there's no problem with it, and I personally think that the fact that it totally relaxes me can only be beneficial to both me and the baby. Good luck!
