Yes, it's safe to actually do the riding, but remember that if you fall, it could be dangerous for you or baby. So use your best judgment. Maybe you decide to go ahead and ride your bike in your driveway, but don't risk hitting a busy street or a steep trail. It's up to you, but know that if you're nervous about it, it's probably best to skip it.

I'm thinking that the effort might not be good for you, if you're pregnant. Best try to check a donate a car fair and get a nice cheap car, if you can't afford a new one. Check for airbags and all you need for a safe ride. Good luck!

I am a man with a pregnant girlfriend and I make her ride to the store daily and bring me a 12 pack of Bud Light and a bottle of lotion, and she seems fine so far, and she can barely ride cause she is 8 months pregnant! Get off your behind and suck it up is what I tells her!

Q&A: Is it safe to ride a bicycle while you're pregnant?

From what I know, it is not even safe to drive your car with a safe belt on after a certain point in your pregnancy, let alone riding a bike. I wanted to sell to junkyards my car immediately after I entered my second trimester, but my family advised me to wait a bit longer before doing it because I might be needing it again after giving birth.

Sounds like an abusive boyfriend!!! (Referring to comment below) Id tell that man to get off his OWN LAZY BUTT, suck it up and get his own beer!!! He obviously doesn't care much about his girl or baby.
