Hello. I have just found out that I`m about 4 weeks pregnant. Before I knew, I had signed up for a charity event where we are required to hike for the majority of the day (with rests inbetween). I exercise very regularily (approx 5 times a week) and am in relatively good shape. Is it safe for me to still participate? I have been doing practice hikes up to now without any problems. The event takes place in just over a week. Thank you.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

I would not advise you to do so. In case you do, please wear a protective gear for your belly and take a first aid kit along with yourself.

wishing you best of health
