You can always blame a bad back and it would be bad to go

Can you pretend you are not feeling well  at the last minute and send your DH in your place with your Dad? (Obviously I don’t have any problems with a little white lie at the right time in the right circumstances.)

I really don’t think the wind tunnel is going to hurt you during your two week wait.  You’ll be in the two week wait, right?  I don’t think there’s anything you can do, short of dying, that’ll hurt your baby that early.  I say, go ahead and do it!  The place is just advising against it so you don’t sue them.

I would just do it honestly. You can’t hurt the baby as it won’t really even start to develop yet. If you were like 3+ months along then yeah I wouldn’t go, but that early and not even knowing if it will happen or not I would just do it.

You could always ask your doctor, the indoor sky diving place is probably being over cautious to cover their ass so no one will sue them.  I don’t think it would actually do any harm if you were very early pregnant.

I’m with idoalterations. It’s early enough that I highly doubt it would impact anything. That aside, it’s very unlikely you’ll get pregnant your first cycle – not unheard of, but I’m several years younger and almost 8 months in with trying, and that’s not that unusual either.

If nothing else, go ASAP after Christmas.

Oh wow I think they are being WAY overprotective, really they just don’t want to be liable if you were to MC or something, although I really don’t think that indoor sky diving would even cause that. I’d just go. I can’t imagine why they would say you shouldn’t do it if you’re TTC. That’s just ridiculous! You’re still a normal human being! Even if you WERE barely pregnant, your GS is so stinkin tiny and it’s down in your pelvis, and surrounded by tons and tons of cushion

@idoalterations: Reply # 4 —> 100% THIS

I am guessing it is just a precautionary measure on their part.

I mean seriously… we are talking minute cells here at this point in time.

Still pretty resilent at this point in time IME.

Especially so in light of all the things that Women do who AREN’T AWARE they are Pregnant

(Lol, you wouldn’t want to hear my list for sure)

@RainbowHope:  Just to give you a similar example, I was reading up on wether I was supposed to get massages or not (it’s totally fine), and read that a lot of places won’t give you massages if you are less than 12 weeks a long simply because they don’t want to be liable if you have a MC. Except, massages don’t cause miscarriages. Gestational issues do! So… it’s just an overprotective, cover their ass kind of thing imo. I wouldn’t even tell them, even if you are pg. And based on what you’ve said it sounds like you probably wouldn’t even know by then if you ARE pg. Just have fun while you can! LIVE IT UP! lol

I would go!  Maybe just check with your Dr. and see what they think.  I believe most miscarriages are caused by chromosomal abnormalities or hormonal/uterine/cervical abnormalities…nothing you do from the outside will impact it.  Other MC might (rarely) be caused by infections or viruses but still not related to any activity.

They’re just protecting themselves, I would check with your Dr.

I would also definitely do the indoor skydiving in my TWW. I also think they are just being extra cautious. I absolutely understand what you mean about if you were to have a miscarriage, you might feel bad about the skydiving. However, the vast majority of miscarriages are not caused by anything the woman does. Massive amounts of caffeine, drugs or alcohol can cause miscarriages, that is about it. Just go and have fun and don’t put your life on hold for TTC! If you do end up pregnant the first cycle, I think it’d be a great story for your future child- he/she was a daredevil in the womb!
