    Carla from TX Asked

    U guys have answered every ? i have had. Here is 1 I didn't expect.Just found out will be about 4 1/2 months preg with 3rd child when coming in Aug. Even though very excited, didn't want to go to DW preg. What rides can I NOT ride with my 2 and 4 year old?

    Hi, Carla!   How wonderful that you have a baby on the way!   I traveled to Disney while 6 months pregnant, and although there were some attractions I had to avoid, I made up for it by trying each and every snack around the parks (being pregnant gave me an excuse to splurge on many extra calories!)

    Some rides you will want to avoid:   any type of coaster or high speed ride (Splash Mountain, Test Track, Big Thunder Mountain, Tower of Terror, etc.)   You should also skip Tomorrowland Speedway due to bumping of cars.   Stay away from rides that might toss you around like Dinosaur, Primeval Whirl, or the Mad Tea Party.

    Before you leave, make sure to discuss your trip with your doctor for any medical advice.   I know my feet would swell up easily in the heat when pregnant, so prop those feet up whenever taking a break in the parks.   Drink lots of water, and don't push yourself!   Take a mid-day break and nap with your little ones. 

    If you have any doubt on if you should go on any attraction, simply skip it!   There are so many things to do and enjoy, just take it easy and soak in the magic.   Have a great trip, and CONGRATULATIONS!
