After finding out that I am 6 weeks pregnant (with my first), my doctor told me absolutely no barrel racing and only very light riding (walking, no trotting or loping). After pleading my case to her that not riding and barrel racing this summer was going to kill me, she discussed all the possible consequences and reasons why I should listen to her.
I wanted to put this out there and see how many of you handled this scenario. I know people who have ridden during their pregnancy and I would like some feedback. Is my doctor being over-concerned? Are the risks really that high? My good friend sides with my doctor and points out that if anything did I happen I would never forgive myself.
I am torn. I want to continue to be active and do what I love to do, but my conscience is nagging. HELP! Thoughts??
