In only 5 weeks.. At center parcs. Safe for me to go on the slides or not? Everything says no pregnant women... But I wondered if I would be ok since so early on?or not ? Here with all my family and no one knows I'm pg...

Yes, you'll be fine.

It depends on your attitude to risk.

I think I'd go personally. The act of sliding carries no risk that I can see. The only possible risk I can identify is of someone landing on you in the pool at the end and your mini bean is so well protected it is unlikely to do any harm.

Consider how you would feel if (sorry for raising this) you mc'd. Even if you knew logiclly that going on the slide didn't cause it, would you blame yourself?

don't think the ones at Center Parcs are likely to be all that white knuckle... Go ahead and have fun!

I went to center parcs (sherwood) at 5wks too! (now 18wks!) I just checked the signs on the slides and they didn't mention anything about not going on if you're pregnant. It's about all we did all week- go on the river rapids! The only thing was the bubble pools as they are too warm for baby. Have a great holiday smile

I spent an hour on a surf machine when a few weeks pregnant, being flung aboutby waves and falling off board onto my tummy! Baby all fine though, they are really well protected in there. I'd go and have fun, enjoy it!! x
