No. I'm not pregnant. A friend of mine who dances with me announced yesterday that she's knocked up. Yay. Really, I'm happy for her, except it means the next 8 months are going to be filled with hearing all sorts of details that will require a lobotomy to expunge from my brain. (She's got NO censors on what she says. At all.) So, she's really worried about dancing while being pregnant. Is it OK? Will it jostle the baby too much? Etc., etc., etc. This is her second kid, so you'd think she'd be more relaxed about it, except that she miscarried last year and so is rather nervous. She said something last night about how your core body temp isn't supposed to rise, and your heart rate has to stay low. Both make sense, to a point, but I KNOW women exercise and whatnot during pregnancy, which would seem to contradict it. I told her to ask her doctor, but she's not convinced that her dr. would know about the risks invovled with dancing. Heh. She's been working on a swing showcase for June. Not any more! What with the dips and drops they had planned, our teacher is refusing to do that with her. And with good reason, since she'll be about 5 months then. They're thinking waltz, or rumba instead. Anyway. So...any advice, words of caution, etc. for my knocked-up friend?
