I am 12wks pregnant and playing Hockey. It is quite an aggressive sport, but in all my years of playing I have never been hit or injured in the midsection. Other than strains / sprains and numerous bruises to the arms and legs, it isn't too bad. Most serious injuries come in the way of broken wrists / hands, cuts or being hit in the head with stick or ball.
Geez, I make it out to sound so violent. If you play Hockey you will know what I mean and it won't sound so bad.
Anyway, how long do people think I should keep playing for? The season has only just started and I did a lot of preseason training to get fit. I have also paid $400 in fees. I really don't want to quit until I have to. It is the only thing that is keeping me sane at the moment. My pregnancy has been in less than desirable circumstances and Hockey is the only thing that makes me feel good at the moment.
