Since I'm spotting already, DH is concerned that I shouldn't be driving my manual transmission car anymore because of extra strain on my abdomen. I told him that we could ask the RE next week though it would probably be a better question for the Perinatologist.

Have any of you heard or been told anything about driving a stick shift while pregnant, especially the high risk mommies?

I've never heard of that constraint. I guess the RE is a great place to ask. Let us know.

I was high risk, and never told not to drive my stick. I never asked about it either though.

Sorry I'm no help, i never that that either.

I'm still driving my manual transmission car. I do have ouchie moments, where I turn and get a pinch in my belly muscles; but it's not from shifting it's from turning and checking out blind spots or general getting in and out and getting situated. You'd get that in any car, so I wouldn't worry to much about driving a manual transmission. Unless you've been put on bedrest or moderated activity, I don't think it's too much more strenuous than driving any other car. But by all means ask, I'd like to know too. I've never thought to ask my Perinatologist. :blush:

i don't think there is much strain driving a stick than with say, walking. lol unless you have a 20 yr old car and the clutch is TIGHT, then i don't see why not.
