should I learn to ice skate in my third trimester?
Edit: thanks for setting me straight everyone. I don't want to risk anything happening to my placenta and putting my little angel in danger. You also make a really good point about the balance. I couldn't seem to balance myself on the ice last time unpregnant anyway (which is weird because I'm pretty good at keeping my balance in yoga).
---------------Okay no one jump on me for this question, but I bought ice skates last year wanting to learn how to skate, but I never took classes and went out once with my husband trying to help me, so it was a fail due to my embarrassment and fear. Yes, I'm the dumb dumb who never learned this skill as a kid or even teen. This winter I'm in my third trimester (due feb 7) and I'm wondering if it might still be safe to take actual classes now, or should I wait until the baby is born (haha, like I'll have time for anything after that). We have a long canal that people skate on every winter and that's what I want to do before it gets closed again. Seriously, I don't look obviously pregnant. My coat still fits and everything. I'm concerned about the falling but of course people tend to break their falls so they don't land on their stomach.
