I biked 5 months into my first pregnancy and through my entire second, in case anyone has questions or would like to talk.

When my wife and I were expecting a couple years ago, I was always annoyed by the inclusion of cycling in the activities to avoid list with other activities I considered far more dangerous. I'm glad (but not surprised) that Europeans take a less paranoid, less "you're-going-to-kill-your-baby-if-you-do-this" approach to their advice on cycling for pregnant.

I'll spare everybody my commentary on the birth-industrial complex in this country brought to you by your "friendly" OB-GYN that completely overmedicalizes everything about what is a perfectly normal and natural biological process. :mad: Oops, too late.
