Roller Coasters

Can I ride on a roller coaster while pregnant?

Roller-Coasters

A: 

No. I advise you to stay off all rides with rapid or jerky motions, as the sudden shifting of your baby from one side of the uterus to the other could cause damage to the placenta. You also shouldn't stand in line for long, as you put yourself at risk for swollen ankles and blood clots in your legs. So let your husband take your son on the exciting rides as you wave from the sidelines.
