I was thinkin of going bowling this weekend but someone told me that you shouldnt go after 3 months of pregnancy, is this true because everything that I have read says otherwise and if anything it is worse before 3 months? I just wanted to know before I actually go, I did go in my previous pregnancy but i was 8 and a half months by that point.
My Doctor said if you went bowling a fair bit before pregnancy it is absolutely fine but if you didn't you shouldn't start now. He told me starting something my body isn't used to during pregnancy is not generally a good idea.
I would imagine it wouldn't make much of a difference and certainly wouldn't hurt the baby it's personal choice really Hon
It's not the weight of the ball that is a concern in pregnancy its the action. Swinging that weight uses all of the muscles in that area so can be dangerous.
I am in no way saying that bowling caused my preterm labour at 29 weeks with my son - they dont know what caused it - but I did go bowling two days before going into preterm labour which always worries me that was the cause.
You have to do what you feel comfortable with! xxx
I agree with carmen, i too have been bowling i think i was about 16/17 weeks at the time & loved it.. I think you own body will tell you if you are doing something wrong, and you will know what feels right. I used the lightest ball & was gentle in my 'swing' .....and i came a close second!!xxxxxx
