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.

I would say that it shouldn't be a problem as your body has natural defenses against things like this. However, you should talk to your doctor about it. As I do not the history of the lake, or your medical history, nor do I have the education or experience to make that kind of judgement.

Thanks. Any advice helps. I might just be cautious, this is my third and given my "over 35" status I want to be careful. Thanks.
