Unless you can put a mask on a fetus, no. Better safe than sorry.

Or let everyone play with pumps and she's got a semi.



dude, a fetus cant see, theres no need for a mask, if you had 2-3 layers of skin completly covering your face you wouldnt need a mask eather, you could be completly lit up on your face and it wouldnt bother your eyes at all. but we can see, were not surrounded by our mothers womb so we need eye protection.

Wow you absoloutley missed the joke.

I know that chances are she would be ok, but it's not a risk that I think is worth taking. Take a year off paintball, save the money for a nice new gun or something, but that seems like risking quite a bit for quite a little in my mind.

Oddly enough... oh my... she's going to be a mother. She'll need to learn to change her WHOLE life around, and if that means no paintball for a year, that's what it will have to take. I highly doubt that a paintball hit would do any sort of injury to an unborn baby (as kicks and punches to a stomach wont effect them... having seen people get assaulted while pregnant). But the continuous bouncing and moving will have some adverse effects (which may include having the child prematurely). I suggest you tell her to stop playing until the baby is born.

Saw this and thought it was funny:

Obviously you don't have kids... she wont be buying anything like that for... oh... 18 years. :ninja:

A kid can play paintball at 10, if they are interested in it. And I know how time consuming kids are but she would have time to play here and there.

1- Exercise is good for her.
2- Pregnant woman = mobile bunker
3- The only protection she'll need is a chest protector as the pregnancy progresses, her breasts will become more sensitive.
4- As she progresses her play style will change to accommodate her increasing size, in other words she won't be running as fast.
5- It's been approved by her doctor. If she feels paintball is a problem or it's becoming painful to play, she'll stop.
6- See #2.
7- The only other concern is vision. It's difficult enough to see your feet with a mask. Add the bunker, uh, belly, and she's going to have to be very careful.

I'd say so.. regardless of how far along, i think she needs to get her priorities right... Anyone heard of a miscarriage (sp?).

Regardless what the doctor says, its not written in stone, and there fore it can still happen. Medicine is a science, one that is still developing every day. Go against it, she needs to have more common sense.

If common sense were common then everyone would have it.

I think see will adjust her play as she sees fit. I am 20% disabled due to a back injury and I still play. I just don't slide and dive into bunkers like some of the younger guys do. That is the wonderful thing about this sport, you don't have to be a world class athelete to play. I have seen all sizes shapes and physical abilities play this great game. If she wants to play and it is within her limits let her play.

Some people are both dumb and selfish.....sounds like the case here.....while anything in life can affect your pregnancy, you try to control as much of your environment as you can....yes, some things you can't control and anything can happen (car accident, fall down the stairs, etc)....but you shouldn't expose yourself to unnecessary risks......and paintball is an unnecessary risk when you are pregnant......

Last summer while playing I was simply running....not too fast/not out of control but just running.....I lost my footing and wiped out, landed on a slab of rock and bruised my ribs.....duh....suppose that happens to her....the fetus could be injured.....i could see the conversation, "gee son/daughter, sorry you were born with defect "A" or "B", but mommy really wanted to play paintball"....tell her to grow up and start putting the safety/needs/concerns for her child first.....she'll be doing it for the rest of her life, she might as well start now......the feeling of missing 9 months of paintball is nothing compared to a lifetime of guilt and sorrow...that's my opinion, but what the hell do i know???

If it were my wife, I would'nt let her, but if she still wants to, and her doctor says it's ok... then I can't stop her.

I've seen this thread float around for a bit and never said anything , but I'm gonna now.

Paintballing while pregnant is stupid. It's not her life she's gambling on. I won't let my wife ride the horses when she was pregnant, nor would she.

Birth defects are not caused by accidents and mis-haps... They are genetic. So, if the child has a birth defect; then she can appologize for it being in the babies GENES and not because of some accident or something.

In the early stages of pregnancy, doctors will recommend women still exercise by running and other "hard methods". How is paintball any different?

Until around month 5-6, there is no danger to the fetus. After about that time, the baby has gained enough weight that the bouncing around could cause the placenta from seperating from the uterus wall.

My wife and I have had EIGHT children and every single one of them is VERY healthy and "normal". No "defects". And my wife has played paintball while pregnant with atleast half of them.

She's safe to play however she wants for the first few months. After that, she needs to slow down on the field. And, as it gets even later in the pregnancy, it's time to sit on the sidelines and cheer her husband on.

I would not be concerned with the josteling of runing on the field, my wife runs five mile every day and was told she could run throughout her pregnancy, she just needed to slow the pace down a bit as it got later on.
The only real concern would be LATE in the pregnancy if she where to fall hard on her belly she might cause some damage to the baby.
The baby is in a sac of fluid for a reason, it's there to protect it from being jostled around and to absorb impacts. A baby is really not that fragile, in utero or out. The doc says it's ok, I don't know why a bunch of laymen on a forum think they know better, espically to the point of calling this woman selfish and stupid ETC.

I say let her play.
