It is highly encouraged for pregnant women not to participate in contact sports while pregnant due to the possibility of direct trauma to the abdomen. Sports like soccer, basketball and hockey put you at a high risk of injury from a ball or collision with another player and possibly a fall during play.
Never exercise to the point of exhaustion or breathlessness. Stop exercising immediately if you experience any of the following: vaginal bleeding, difficulty breathing especially while resting, dizziness, headache, chest pain, muscle weakness, calf pain or swelling, preterm labor, decreased fetal movement, and fluid leaking from your vagina.
Check with your physician to discuss the risks and benefits of contact sports during your pregnancy.
