Top 10 Things You Shouldn't Do While Pregnant

Being pregnant signals the start of a newborn life, but there are issues involved, and here is a list of things you shouldn't do while pregnant.

The Top Ten Things You Shouldn't Do While Pregnant

1 Ride a roller coaster

Because the twists and turns and g-forces can be bad for the predeveloping baby and aggravate it.
There are signs saying expectant mothers shouldn't ride them. - Gregory

2 Take drugs shouldn't do drugs anyway.

No! It can damage lungs when the baby's in there!

What decent mother-to-be would even think about doing this? In fact what decent woman in general would even think about doing this. - Britgirl

Because drugs are harmful for the predeveloped baby, and any baby in general. - Gregory

3 Drink alcohol

Because alcohol is a harmful chemical to the baby, and any young people. - Gregory

4 Fly on a plane

Because the g-forces from takeoff and landing can aggravate the predeveloped baby and so would the climbing, turbulence and changes in pressure from altitude. - Gregory

5 Get beat up

Because the predeveloped baby would be a victim too. - Gregory

6 Drive on a bumpy road

Because the bumps can be too much for the predeveleoped baby. - Gregory

7 Go down slides

Because the motion can aggravate the predeveloped baby. - Gregory

8 Ride on spinning rides

Because the spinning motion would be bad for the predeveloped baby, and it's not ready for it. - Gregory

9 Jump

Pregnant women shouldn't not only jump on trampolines, they shouldn't jump period, because that would hurt the predeveloped baby. - Gregory

10 Swim

It's really hard, if not impossible, to swim while pregnant, and not only could the mother drown, but so would the predeveloped baby, and that would kill it. - Gregory

The Contenders

11 Bungee jumping

Because the bouncing around can really aggravate the predeveloped baby.

12 Run

Running is too intense when you're pregnant and would disturb the baby. - Gregory

13 Ride bumper cars

Because the bumping would aggravate the predeveloped baby, even things as simple or fun as bumper cars would be bad for it. - Gregory

14 Bellyflop

Because the turning is not good for the predeveloped baby, especially since it's not developed for that yet. - Gregory

15 Smoke

Because like drugs, that can poison not only the expectant mother, but also the baby. You see this is one of the reasons why on occasions, babies have birth defects. - Gregory

16 Bounce on a ball

The predeveloped baby should be in good stability and process, so bouncing is not safe for it. - Gregory

17 Ride simulators

The seat motion on simulators combined with the movie motion would be bad for the predeveloped baby, as since your brain lines up with the image motion and tricks it, that would add to the problem, and put the baby in danger. - Gregory

18 Ride a Drop Tower

The drops are too sudden and startling for the baby, and are another example of thrill rides besides roller coasters.
Tower of Terror at Disney World is a famous example. - Gregory

19 Eating 3 whole pizzas

I um, *gulp*, just ate 2 entire medium plain cheese pizzas from Dominoes... I am so full, and so embarrassed, but it was so good!

With the growing baby there is no room in your tummy and if you ate 3 whole pies you would be stuffed beyond belief! I ate a whole plain cheese pizza a few days ago at 7 months pregnant and was so stuffed and my belly was sloshing so much. 😩

20 Drink an entire gallon of apple juice

I did this a few days ago a seven months pregnant. I wasn't harmed but I was so full!
