Swimming during pregnancy?

Swimming during pregnancy? Topic: Case swimming and diving
May 24, 2019 / By Hylda
Question: I know it's okay to swim when you're pregnant, don't over exert yourself, no diving/water slides, etc. But as far as swimming underwater, is everything ok to do? Like flips (while you're still able) or kicking off from the wall. I was afraid kicking off might be too sudden of a movement and too fast. Is there anything off limits in the pool when pregnant, or anything that you'd recommend to get some good exercise? I'm 18 weeks and 5 days pregnant. thanks. Thanks! Also, to I Love Mason, I didn't give you the thumbs down.

Other than belly flops, there is absolutely nothing you can do in the pool that will hurt the baby. (Other than drown, of course) In order for a movement to be dangerous, you'd have to be getting into roller coaster speeds and jerks. If that weren't the case, driving to the pool would harm your baby. Have fun in the pool! That was the only time in my pregnancy that I didn't feel like a giant whale. (even though I'm sure I looked like one in the water!)

Edyta Originally Answered: Which sentence is proper: "She is swimming well" or "She is swimming good"?
Both are incorrect. Its 'She is a good swimmer'. Or, 'She swims well'. Note, the first example is an adjective modifying a noun, and an adverb modyfying a verb in the latter.
Edyta Originally Answered: Which sentence is proper: "She is swimming well" or "She is swimming good"?
"well" is an adverb so should be used to modify "swimming" even though that is a gerund. A gerund is a verb masquerading as the object of the sentence, but that doesn't mean it is a noun. So the disguise is incomplete, and you need to use the adverb to modify the verb. For instance, consider the following two sentences: She is fast. She is short. She is swimming. You might write "She is fast and short" -- those are both adjectives and sound OK together-- but you are unlikely to write "She is fast and swimming" -- those words don't "go together". You say you could write "She is swimming and fast" to mean "She is swimming, and swimming fast", but then you'd just be arguing for argument's sake.

I agree with Jeannie both are lnguistically poor - but the lesser of the two 'evils' is "she is swimming well" - because swimming is a verb and must be used in conjunction with an adverb (thus "well") . "Good" is an adjective used to give more details about a noun in a sentence.

Nope, as the other person said, aside from belly flops, nothing you do in the pool can hurt your baby. Have fun and enjoy the summer!

You have a SORE (not soar -- that is what a jet does in the sky) throat? Getting water in your nose/nasal passages and throat will definitely cause the symptoms you've described. Did you proof read what you wrote? It is a good idea as your writing leaves a lot to be desired. Do you know what a CAPITAL letter is? Every sentence is to start with a capital letter. Plus, the word "I" is always capitalized. When you use proper English, those who read English can more easily understand what you wrote. Reply to Additional Details: Hi Louie, You're welcome. I'm pleased that you now realize that it does not matter where you write. See, it is YOU who is trying to communicate with others and, for that reason, way back when you learning to talk and later started kindergarten and first grade, you were given rules for communication so that when you spoke or wrote, others would CLEARLY be able to understand you. Sadly, it appears your parents and teachers failed you. In addition, your writing and speaking skills are your first impression on someone else (you really didn't impress anyone with your poor skills here) and that first impression is a reflection of your intellect. It is too bad you write like an imbecile. Perhaps, you can change that. See, I don't know about you (well, now I do), but it does not matter to me to whom I'm working to communicate. My first language is English and I use proper English in my writing or speaking so as to ensure my message is clear and it does not matter if it is the President of the US or the damn Internet. The reason I use proper (proper = the applying of the rules I learned in grade school, high school, and college) English is that it is my understanding that everyone uses the same rules so that everyone can communicate. That is opposed to your apparent ignorance. BTW, Louie ... nice shirt and tie. But, now go back and put that McDonald's uniform on because, if you applied for a job with me using your writing skills, you application would be thrown away. So, it is most likely, with your lack of writing skills, that all you'll be doing is asking people if they want "fries with that hamburger." GOOD LUCK! P.S. I proof read my reply and actually corrected any spelling or grammatical errors.
