  • You should be ok as long as your water hasn't broken but there is a small chance of contracting something. It's your decision

  • Just call and ask your doctor or an on call nurse.

  • I did. The last time i went was the day before i was induced. I was dialated to a 3 and 75% effaced:) I swam thru my whole last couple months. It was so relaxing. And my pedi said as long as i didnt jump in ans force water thru my vagina it will be fine. And it was the best thing to go float around weightless after being on my feet all day!
