Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Should be fine as long as you haven't lost your mucus plug, haven't started dilating or your cervix isn't thinning.  I would check with your doctor before dipping in though.  I was 34 weeks with my last pregnancy and was told I had to stop taking baths because I was already dilating and you let bacteria in once your body starts prepping for birth.  Check with you doctor first because they know where your body is.  :)

I agree that you should check with your dr. Other than that I want to know where you are that still has public pools open! Lol. If you know that none of that is going on I would think it would be ok but the safe way to be would be to check with your dr. Good luck and lucky you that you're so far along! :)

Thanks for your responses.  I will check with my doctor.  We do have indoor pools here at the recreation centers.  Very fun place for the other kiddos.
