My husband wants to join the YMCA and he wants me to join with him. The indoor heated swimming pools are pretty tempting. But I was wondering if they are safe to use? Has anyone used one when they were pregnant? I'm mostly concerned about the water temperature and the chlorine levels.
i always swam when pregnant - in indoor pools, the ocean and even in the blue lagoon in Iceland where the water is very hot. Water temperature is only a concern if it's so hot that it raises your body temperature too much. i don't think a pool will be that hot. i don't know about chlorine levels though.
Went swimming today and it was fun! I also had a concern about germs because I'm a little germaphobic and a bit more than usual since becoming pregnant lol. But they had two in door pools, one was a play area for little kids and the other was a lane pool with half of the pool closed off for swimming. Not many were in the lane pool so I swam in there. It was quite fun! I really like the facilities!
