can i swim after losing plug, or is that just when the water breaks you need to worry about infections.

I would not suggest swimming once you loose your plug, as you are open to infection, & there are ALOT of germs in a swimming pool. You can however have a shower or bath as long as the bath is sterile. I had a natural water birth with my 2nd (ds), but with both dd & ds did use the shower during my labours which help tremendously. Talk to your midwife or doctor for more info on what you should & shouldn't do once your plug goes or your water breaks.

Well, i did swim after i lost my plug. I hadn't heard that it was bad, but i didn't ask my doctor either, maybe i should have. I didn't have any problems though and actually the day my water broke and i went into labor i had been swimming laps that day, so anytime someone asks for suggestions about ways to bring on labor i always suggest swimming b/c it worked for me. LOL
