I just realized, when pregnant with ds2 at 36 weeks I got married and went on my honeymoon a few hours from home... I went on a mining tour/hike type deal and everything. Was so worth it and all was good

Whale Watching is routinely quiet and easy - especially when out looking for/at Orca. Most boats won't go out in choppy seas or foul weather either. I went boating when I was 36 weeks with my last pregnancy and was fine. Worked with horses up until a couple days ago with this pregnancy (C-Section scheduled for this Tuesday AM!) and am fine. Just play it by ear. If you're having issues with nausea and pain and mobility - cancel.

Ty for all the input! And kudos to you active ladies keeping up with your lifestyles so close to d day! The pee may be tricky. The tours are 3-4 hours and the boat I would want is small so no bathroom. I pictured getting an arena buddy but I just would die laughing or find a way to pop it and get pee everywhere hahahaga

I would go if i were you. The only thing that would cause me hesitation is that, at this point, i can NOT hold my bladder for 3 or 4 hours lol!

I did find a couple companies who have bathrooms. One actually caps at 8 people, has seats, has a bathroom, and they said if I get sick and need to lay down I could use the cabin below. I was like daaaamn saying everything a girl wants to hear.

I probably wouldn't go either, especially that far along. I personally wouldn't have felt up to it at that point in my pregnancy.

I'd fear any choppiness, even if pretty minor, making me loose my balance when walking around (because your balance is affected by your increasing bump) and then my bump hitting into anything e.g. a hard guard railing Also as said if anything should happen, it would take that much longer to get to a hospital. Then there's any water that gets on the deck you could potentially slip on and risk falling.

So yeah, I personally wouldn't risk my pregnancy for something I could always do at a later date!

Also are the seat belts made for pregnant women? You'd need the part that goes over your lap to stay under your bump, otherwise you risk any sudden jolts from the belt causing e.g. the placenta to tear away from the uterus. If you absolutely want to go, try maybe taking a pregnancy seat belt adjuster that holds the strap over your lap under your bump. Also you're more prone to getting burned by the sun so apply extra sunscreen and remember to apply it more often. Oh and a hat would be a good idea as well!

Oh man! I'd go! That sounds amazing.

I went tobogganing when I was like 7 months along with my second. I remember jumping on my brothers Quad and doing donuts. My husband stood there laughing and yelling "7 months pregnant people! 7 months pregnant!!" I also got ploughed over by someone coming down the hill. Ran right into me and knocked me right over. My daughter is 5 now and as healthy as can be! Haha

Meh I wouldn't go but not from fear of falling. I'm still walking out into muddy icy pastures to get my horses. I wouldn't go because I wouldn't want to be uncomfortable and unable to get away. But I know how I am on boats, yuck. Plus if there were any rough seas, the idea of the boat coming down off a wave and the pressure on my bladder is enough to put me off. But if you've found a boat with a bathroom, I'd say go for it no way would I go without one, sounds like torture at this point. I can make it maybe 2 hours if I try...sometimes though I can't go more than 30 minutes.
