what can I do while being pregnant?

Question Posted Sunday March 22 2009, 8:47 pm

I have a couple questions about what I can and cannot do while I am pregnant. Right now I am only about 9 weeks along. If you don't know all the answers that fine just please answer what you can:)

1- Can I ride horses or not? If I can can I do my horses normal work out, Im a barrel racer, and pole bender.

2- Can you get perms? Some people say yes some say no. Do the chemicals really harm the baby?

3- Is there any websites that can help you plan for baby and plan out monthly cost?

I am not sure if you can ride horses or not. That will be something you will have to discuss with your doctor on your next visit. I would refrain from it until you ask.

I would not get perms if I were you. It's up for debate about whether or not it is safe, but I have mostly heard it isn't. When I get pregnant, I plan on staying away from anything that could even be potentially dangerous to my baby. But it's up to you about what you choose.

Google pregnancy websites, and you will get a lot of links. Try cafemoms and webmd.

Congratulations on your pregnancy, and good luck.

actually, you can go running while pregnant, the person below me is wrong. (I'm in nursing classes) Running is VERY good for you & the baby. But after so long, it get uncomfortable for you, because the baby is getting bigger, and is being moved a lot more while s/he is inside you. You can not perm your hair, like dying, the chemicals get into your blood stream and your blood is the babies bloods. Horse riding, I;m really not sure, I say it might be okay, until it get uncomfortable, but I'm not sure. As for a safety hazard, you could fall off and kill the baby. Just google "going to be a mommy" or things like "how to plan for a baby" things like that. GOOD LUCK & CONGRATS!!!

It's not a good idea to ride horses while pregnant.

In fact, the most physical you can get while pregnant and still be safe is taking a brisk walk.

Also, I wouldn't get a perm. Chemicals can harm the baby, whether they absorb through your skin or by inhalation.

As for planning for baby, there are many websites out there...

that one may help, but since every pregnancy is different (as is every mom) you'll probably want to search for yourself and use several websites depending on what you're looking for at the time.

Planning out monthly cost is difficult as well. Every family and financial situation is different. Depends on how often you plan to visit the doctor, whether or not you're insured, if you plan to start stockpiling baby supplies from the beginning (and trust me, you should), etc.

Decide where you want to be at the end of your pregnancy (do you want the works, the car seat, the baby chair, the crib, a mountain of diapers and wipes and bath supplies and tiny clothes...) and start pricing things. Once you know about how much it will cost, divide it up to see how much you should be saving each month to meet your goals.

Hope this helps.
