So, we're going to be going to a very non-commercial and old-fashioned amusement park that is oriented toward young children this weekend. It will be my parents, maybe my sister, my 3 yo daughter, DH and myself. I'm wondering what I can/should go on, and how to decide. Only my DH knows we're pregnant. We're waiting to tell daughter until we see a heartbeat and we're waiting to tell family until we've told DD. (And, I don't want to be caught studying every little sign as I"m usually a big ride person and feel like that might be showing my hand. I already don't know how to navigate the no wine at 4 nice dinners in a row!).
In general, my feeling about pregnancy is that everything has a potential risk but most things are not real risks. (ie: my chances of having a miscarriage are greater from a car crash than an amusement park ride). So, when I read descriptions that say I shouldn't go on anything, I'm totally skeptical. That said, I don't want to take any real risks.
I'm certain I won't be going on the fast roller coaster, anything that spins and uses g-force (likely to make me puke anyway), or anything with seriously jerky motion. What about the old wooden roller coaster that my 3 year old isn't even afraid of? What about the ferris wheel? Stuff like that?
Anyone with any recent experience or ideas on this that will allow me to go on some things with DD (who is so excited about this trip!)?
