I got a question, fairly sure it is a big no, but thought I would ask. I have a friend, who wants to dive, we paid for her another friend of mine, and her now exboyfriend:smiley31: to do a discover course and she loved it. We had planned to get them all certified this summer, but a day after dumping her boyfriend she found out she is pregnant.

Can a woman dive when she is pregnant? If she did the ow this summer she would be about 5 months. She wants to dive, but safety first. Plus I need a dive buddy here in Indiana :smiley31:

Bigman... I would say, you definitely should not dive if you're pregnant. You shall call the Oprah show.

No, I think that is more Jerry Springer material.

B & B Circus and Oprah in a bidding war. Oprah would win.

I was diving for the entire nine + months before my daughter was born. Nothing deep. Mostly in the Keys < 33ft. My buddies were on hookah rigs.

How far along are you Big?
