Five things about swimming while nine months pregnant

Thursday, May 20, 2010

37 weeks, 4 days pregnant
  1. It’s hard to shuffle around the pool deck in flip-flops when your feet have swollen to the size of Christmas hams
  2. Children’s pools are very, very warm. So warm that you can’t deny the warmth is caused by pee. But warm enough that you don’t really care, because it’s like a relaxing bath.
  3. It’s fun to feel light and weightless in the water …
  4. … of course, you also feel waaaaay heavier than usual when you finally haul your preggo self out of the pool
  5. Apparently pregnant bellies do not make you super-buoyant … or maybe they do, but your new butt counteracts it by weighing you down.

So what do you think?
