On Shesurfs.com, Kristi Olivares wrote that she had"been surfing for around four years and while I am definitely no expert, I have the confidence and ability to surf safely and competently in many types of conditions."

High impact and contact sports should be avoided completely. This includes racquet sport and involves the risk of abdominal trauma, falls or excessive joint stress and scuba diving, which could permanently harm your baby.

Carrie Cooper did the same thing during her pregnancy, only she’s a climber and continued to climb up until her 39th week of pregnancy.

NO. There are so many risk in the first trimester of pregnancy and in the second and third trimester there are additional risk and dealing with weight gain. I do not think this is appropriate at all.

My doctor told me that I could continue to do any and all physical activity that I normally did including lifting until I felt it was no longer safe to do. I worked in a nursing home lifting patients until my 8th month of pregnancy, stayed active during both pregnancys, both of my kids turned out well, but do please make sure to take your prenatal vitamins every day, and intaking extra calcium is important too!!!

While CrossFit workouts do not typically last for prolonged periods, the fast pace and intensity create a potential for dehydration."Dehydration can cause preterm uterine contractions, and in the worst-case scenario, lead to preterm labor.

This means that water skiing, horse riding, snowboarding, gymnastics, downhill skiing, rock climbing, skating, ice hockey and surfing are best put on hold while you're pregnant.
