Okay the fair is in town and they have all the games and food I want to go for. But i'm wondering if it's okay to go on the Ferris Wheel? I wouldn't see why not? It just goes around in a circle, no jarring movements or anything lol. Whats your opinion?

Well, I would say that it's safe in theory. I never trust the traveling carnivals, but that's just my own hang up.

I'm not sure. I know the last carnival I went to all the rides but the merry-go-round had a "do not ride if pregnant" sign. I don't remember if there was a ferris wheel or not.

My husband's company family summer picnic was at the local amusement park a few weeks ago and the ferris wheel had a big "do not ride if pregnant" sign. I was really disappointed, because besides the wave pool and the carousel, I was sure that was the one other thing I could go on. No such luck.

I think it wouldn't *actually* be dangerous, they're just covering their butts. But they probably wouldn't let you on since you're far enough along to be showing.

I have to agree I don't trust traveling carnivals . Sorry it doesn't look like you will get to ride the ferris wheel.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
