Is Halloween Safe?

Every year I go to some haunted house or maze or something. I haven't been able to go for two years and DH said we could go this year and I'm super stoked - except, I know it gets my heart rate up and Dr. Google has varying opinions on if pregnant women should attend or not. Most people say if it's late third tri mester than no, but I'll be early second tri mester.

Any thoughts on this?

I was kind of wondering the same thing. I'm only in the first trimester so maybe it's ok. I think the danger in it is dangerous obsticles to get through and it being dark maybe falling? Im sure it's fine if your careful, theres always emergency exits too. I really want to go to one this year!

Maybe call your midwife and get her thoughts on it? I don't totally trust Dr Google for the real skinny on stuff like this. Personally, I probably won't go to any, but that is more a function of my overwhelming laziness ("stand in line? In the cold? When I could be watching reruns of Arrested Development under a blanket on my couch? Nothankyouverymuch!") Lol

I wouldn't worry too much about it, I mean, excitement, orgasms, etc., get your heart rate up too and they're perfectly fine! I think the danger is if you are prone to early labor or something...
