There is no evidence to suggest that swimming is no good. Chorline kills kills in a swimming pool nd if in the beach salt does the same thing.
i haven't heard that and i swam throughout my pregnancy. Perhaps you coul ask your child health nurse?
I know you have to becarefull with spas and TTC but not to sure about swimming. I've swam thru all four of my pregnancies and had no problems.. As PP said ask your Dr if your not sure.. All the best..

I've never heard that before... If it helps I've been swimming in both pools and the ocean recently and have now reached the 12 week mark safetly..

My gyno suggested swimming to help fertility. Breast stroke is good for toning pelvic muscles so the sperm have some help when they are swimming upward
