I am 38 and some odd days along, I wanted to go swimming but someone told me it isn't safe to do this after the eighth month. Is this true or false?

False. I just asked my doctor this week. It is great to swim or float, as long as your water hasn't broken. She highly recommended it!

I heard it was ok. But, I went swimming when about a weeks and a half ago (I was 38 weeks) and at my doc appt. she said I had a yeast infection. It was a heated pool, I don't know if that was the cause, just be careful to change your wet bathing suit as soon as possible. I didn't have any uncomfort so I was surprised to hear that I even had an infection.

I'm sure it's ok to go swimming. The only reason I can't go is that lately I've had trouble doing my bikini line properly and I don't trust my husband to do it.
