I have mowed with the rider through all of my pregnancies. I think I mowed within a couple days of delivering my last one. No problems at all. I actually find it relaxing. I have my cup holder with a cold bottle of water and I am good to go.

I mowed our lawn until 35 weeks prego. It drove my husband nuts but I enjoyed it.

Besides it being a good exercise, I think I read somewhere that if you are close/past term than doing strenuous yard work can send you into labor! Something about mowing, weeding, and digging seems like it might be a good labor induction...someone try it and tell us if it works!

I am still mowing 33 weeks and going. My husband tried to stop my the last three weeks in a row, but it is a mental battle for me. I am also still running and working out every day. DH tries to finish mowing when he is finished weed eating but I tell him, "You are not going to be able to help me push this baby out and you are not helping me finish this lawn." I feel like it is making me mentaly stronger in my will power. First baby and doing birthing center so I need stamina.

Good luck and keep up the good work

I'm 39 weeks and have been mowing the lawn my whole pregnancy and actually just did yesterday. My DH works out of town so if I don't do it then it doesn't get done

I'm 37 weeks and still mow both front and back lawns, do the hedge trimming when needed, tend to my flowers and other gardening. No reason not to.

I make sure to stay hydrated, but you should do that pregnant or not, so other than the fact that my stomach gets in the way of the big weed whacker I still do all the same stuff. Some days it just takes me longer.
