Swimming and Pregnancy

One of the best exercises that you can do while pregnant is swimming. Swimming is great for a variety of reasons.

* The water carries your weight, relieving your joints and muscles.
* The water is a perfect resistance item that won't put added strain on your body but will strengthen your muscles and joints.
* You certainly don't have to worry about becoming overheated while exercising if you are swimming!
* One word of caution-Once your water breaks, signaling impending labor, don't attempt to swim or even take a tub bath. Call your doctor, though!
