I dream of going to a waterpark right now (15 weeks pregnant) and playing in the lazy river. Some parks have really tame slides you can go on too.

I would avoid the slides and jumping in off the side of a pool. Otherwise like PP said, take over the lazy river. I was really bummed too, we go to some big waterparks and stay in a resort with an indoor waterpark a couple of times in the summer and fall, and I will miss out on the slides:(

I think most of the slides at waterparks have the same signs as roller coasters and will not allow pregnant woman on the slides. Something like a lazy river might be your only option, not sure if you want to spend all that money just to sit in the lazy river.

Also with back pain that a lot of us experience during pregnancy, I can only imagine that the slides would make it worse.

I agree that slides are a bad idea. Also, I’m not sure how far along you are but just a warning that lying around at a water park/beach isn’t as comfortable as it used to be. I was so excited to go to the lake when I was 36 weeks pregnant, but then found out that there is no comfortable way to lie in the sand 🙁

I was 17-18 weeks when I went to Jamaica. (By my doctor) I was allowed to go on two (VERY) tame water slides.  As long as they do not dump you harshly into the pool (hitting your bottom/back hard) it’s not such a big deal (depending how far you are).  I also went river tubing which is similar to a lazy river.  It really all depends what you can find.  Avoid anything that goes fast or has a drop off.  Though those are of course the most fun ones LOL.

I went at 20 weeks and non of the signs said anything about being pregnant so I went on all of them! It felt good to have some fun and some deep belly laughs! Think LO enjoyed it too! Here I am at 25 weeks and he is moving more then ever and happy and healthy according to my doc.
