Planning on going swimming either tomorrow or on the 31st but at my swimming pool their are some large adult water slides are these safe in preg? im 28 weeks

No they aren't and they should have a warning saying not to use if you're pregnant.

Definitely do not use them- you can hit the water with some serious force. I would stay well away.

Of course they aren't safe.

No way - the speed and force of the water could mirror the impact of a car crash for a pregnant woman.

Is this a joke?

No it wasn't a joke thanks.
I did think afterwards I had seen the sign saying no pregnant women before.
I'm sorry I asked a stupid question and I feel like a right idiot now but please don't be horrible to me. I've been through enough all ready.

I hate to sound like my mum but the only stupid question is the one you don't ask. So don't feel as! Ignore the rude replies and have a nice swim. smile

To be honest, I'm not sure I would have even thought about it!
I agree with AnnaT45 (unless your asking if your pregnant and not POAS then all questions shouldn't really be a silly one)

YouBastardSockBalls Tue 29-Dec-15 14:44:23

Sorry, didn't want to make you feel bad.

Same thought crossed my mind when I took my niece swimming at about 20 weeks- I wondered if I could go on the big water slide for a brief moment then decided best not to. It's easy to have a brain lapse when there's so much advice to consider/pregnancy hormones/sleep depravation confusing matters. Enjoy your swim though!

Better to ask the question than just to go ahead and do it grin

Champagneformyrealfriends Tue 29-Dec-15 22:43:34

Don't feel bad for asking it's better to check if you're not sure! To be fair me and DH went away when I was 10w and I very nearly suggested the water park! Xx

Bloody hell. Give the girl a break! Don't feel bad for asking a question! That's what this place is here for. Enjoy your swim
