Going swimming at 38 weeks pregnant....

Postby lainey84 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:54 pm

I am just wondering if people have gone swimming this late in pregnancy and is there any possibility of pool staff stopping you.

I will be going with my oh and am hoping it will take weight off my back

Now to psyche myself up to wear a togs...........

the only reason my doctor warned me off going swimmingthis late on was because swimming, even just floating in all the water can make babeis head rise back up!!

OK I asked about this at the hospital today and the doc said to me she had never heard that this can happen that its perfectly safe to continue swimming.. but I think myself Ill prob give up around the 38 week mark anyway!

just had antenatal class yesterday and midwife said that swimming on ur front can get baby into right position ie its back to your tummy and this can make a massive difference to how easily babs can get out during labour
