Is it safe to use a bouncy castle while pregnant? And other things I’ve asked Google recently.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt since being pregnant, it’s that however niche your question about your pregnancy, another mother-to-be will have already asked it. I’ve searched dozens of increasingly obscure questions and am yet to come up blanks. Granted, most of the resulting pages are chatroom/comment threads without actual answers to the question you’re searching, but in terms of not feeling alone, it’s ace.

 



Here are some of my more random searches to date.


‘Is it safe to use bouncy castle while pregnant?’
          I’m going to a birthday BBQ with one and I REALLY don’t want to miss out. Answer: no medical advice, but try not to fall over.

‘Being punched in the stomach in early pregnancy’
          Don’t panic, I’m not being abused or carelessly involving myself in bar brawls, but my cat jumped onto me really hard (it was more of a pounce than a jump, really) and I thought the cat-pounce search was a little too niche. Answer: the little babe is well protected in there. Being punched is best avoided (bad Ziggy Cat) but you should be OK.


‘Can I eat cheesecake while pregnant?’
          Duh. Answer: if it’s baked.

‘Can I play tennis pregnant?’
          Please say no, please say no, please say no. Answer: New sports are best avoided. What. A. Shame.

‘Normal weight gain in pregnancy’
          Because WHOA I got heavy. Answer: it varies from person to person but I should be ok.

‘Baby on board badge rude London’
          Because THIS. Answer: Yes, London is rude. 

‘Sweat pregnancy’
          TMI? Sorry but going through a second adolescence here. Answer: yes, it can increase. Super.

 ‘Cheesecake pregnancy’

          Just checking. Answer: still needs to be baked.
