Sooo my fiance and I are planning our honeymoon right now, and we are thinking of spending a day or two at one of the six flags parks. We both love rollercoasters and I’ve only ever been to the ones in Toronto which (sorry, Canada – earmuffs!) are kind of crappy! I want some real coasters!!
Only potential issue that I just thought of is that we will be TTC starting 2 days before our wedding (if my 4-months-from-now estimates of when I will ovulate are close to correct). We would hit up six flags on our way back from whatever carribean resort we will stay at for most of the trip. So there is a small chance I might be around 2 weeks pregnant when we are riding the rollercoasters.
I doubt that it’s a health risk since the pregnancy would be so, so early – but what about nausea? I’ve never gotten motion sickness before, and in general I have a really strong stomach, practically nothing makes me nauseous, especially not awesome rides 😀 – but might it happen anyway, with pregnancy? How early does the nausea tend to start?

I road rollercoasters before I knew I was pregnant and I didn’t have unusual nausea, but every pregnancy is unique. I didn’t suffer from much morning sickness at all, but what I remember of it was around the 6-8 week mark.

When you say 2 weeks pregnant, do you mean 2 weeks after conception? Pregnancy is usually counted from the first day of your last period, unless otherwise dated by an ultrasound.
So lets say you are 4 weeks pregnant when you go to Six Flags. It would be unlikely, but not impossible, to feel nauseous then. Morning sickness often hits around 6 weeks. I don’t know if rollercoasters would make MS worse. I was on a ferry when my MS was pretty bad, and I actually felt pretty good while at sea. Whereas thinking about grilled chicken breast makes my stomach revolt.

I didn’t feel nausea until about 6 weeks into my pregnancy, if that helps you a bit! Motion didn’t make me feel sick, brushing my teeth did (as did cooked vegetables, eggs and most other food for that matter). 🙂

Most of the roller coasters will have warnings that expectant mothers should not ride. It seems pretty early to impact things, but it could interfere with implantation if your body treats it as stress. Why not just enjoy your honey moon and start trying when you get back?
Of course, I’m sure tons of women who don’t know they are pregnant ride.
