I am 29 weeks pregnant and about to stop work in 3 weeks. I am a gardeners so i am reasonable fit and have been quite active all my preganacy. I want to swim at the local pool when i stop work to keep active but am concerned that i could get and infection that could hurt the baby or me. I was just wondering if it safe as all the info i have says that swimming is good exersise during pregnacy.
