You don't see that many pregnant women swimming. I imagine being pregnant changes how your body moves through the water?

No, not particularly. Water still flows past a larger rounded belly pretty well.

Speaking to doctors, swimming is the most commonly recommended form of exercise - it's no-impact, the water takes the weight of the baby off your back, it doesn't strain your joints. And in the summer, it's also a good way to cool off.

I still swim faster than a number of other people in the pool, 9 months pregnant...
