So me and my SO were thinking about going to see the movie sinister tonight but I heard its bad to get scared while pregnant. What do you think about this? Yes or no?

    A scary movie would probably be ok unless you really tend to freak out during them (hyperventilate, become hysterical, pass out, etc).  I wouldn't do something like a haunted house or things like that pregnant because I would be afraid that my body would go into fight or flight mode and that can technically be a bit dangerous during pregnancy for some people.

    On another note, I can't even watch the trailer for Sinister when it comes on TV without it freaking me out!!  I love scary movies, but that one just seems tooooo freaky for me.  ::shudder::

    If you get spooked it can send you into labor.

    Are you healthy, having a normal pregnancy?
       How is your blood pressure?

    I don't think it should be a problem, but often the sound is too loud in a theater and this might be concerning.

    GL, have fun!

    I'm pretty good with controlling getting scared. And my pregnancy is healthy, normal blood pressure :)

    I think you'd be fine.

    I am so not a fan of scary movies! I feel like it is a waste to pay for a movie that I end up covering my eyes for! lol!

    I don't think a movie would be bad enough to send you into labor...I guess it just depends how scared you get while watching it.  I would think it would have to be like heart racing, traumatic, flat out SCARED out of nowhere type thing, not just a movie...but I wouldn't really know...so good luck! :)

    I watch scary movies a lot. Scary movie fear isn't the same as real-life fear, really.
