Hunting While Pregnant

I ran across today’s article and simply had to pass it along.

“Tips for Hunting When You’re Pregnant”:http://www.womensoutdoorwire.com/releases/144776 is the title and it starts like this:

_As luck would have it, Stephanie Mallory was pregnant during turkey season with both of her boys, Ethan, who is now 5 ½ years old (and adamant that the ½ year be recognized), and 19-month-old Ransom. And she was bound and determined to go on the hunts she had planned._

“_I went on five or six turkeys hunts between the two pregnancies. One hunt was in my first trimester while the others were in the second trimester,” Stephanie said. “A hunt in the first trimester can be hard because a lot of women feel lousy then. However, the second trimester is considered the honeymoon phase of pregnancy, when you feel good and have lots of energy. It’s an ideal time to get outdoors because you’re not big and bulky yet.”_

_Before Stephanie went on any hunts, she talked to her doctor, something every woman who is expecting a child should do._

Though this topic is certainly out of my frame of reference, it contains what sounds like some great advice.

For you gals with a go-get-um attitude, read on.

It wouldn’t hurt some of you guys to pay a little attention, either!

I am definitely going to remember this the next time one of my huntin’ buds tries to back out of a trip for some sissy reason…
