Skiing is probably not a good idea for most moms-to-be, especially in the last trimester. Falling or running into something could be dangerous for your baby – and for you.
As you get further along in your pregnancy, your sense of balance diminishes and your weight is distributed differently. So things that require good balance, like skiing, will be more difficult as you head into the third trimester.
Even though your baby is very well protected in the uterus (it usually takes a car accident or major trauma to harm the baby), if you're skiing and you take a fall or go hip first or belly first into a tree, you could fracture your pelvis or injure your uterus, endangering you, your baby, or both.
Of course, if you're an experienced skier, there's less risk of this happening. Still, as your pregnancy progresses, it becomes more of a possibility for you, too.
