Ok so I was deciding on getting a swimming pool for this summer because I am going to be pregnant most of the summer. My due date is Augest 9th. I was looking at gettiing one of thos that all you do is add water and it rises as the water fills the pool I was also looking at like a 4 foot one because I know I am going to be so hot this summer, the thing is they are like 200 or more dollars (not that we don't have the money), but anyway, the thing is I got to thinking usually you can't go swimming until the end of may begining of June or even the middle of June. My kids are 3 years and nearly 6 years so they wont be able to go into the pool unless I am in the pool with them. I can't have anyone else go in with them since it is only my dh and he works all day so it will just be me, but I was thinking if I get this pool then I am only going to get to go swimming in it about 2 months then I thought it might be kinda stupid to buy one I can only use 2 months. After I have baby I wont be able to go swimming the rest of the summer probably since I will be healing. Then that means the girls wont be able to use the swimming pool cause I cant go in it. So then I thought maybe just getting one of those 3 ring blow up ones for this year something I can relax in then. Then get the 4 foot one next year where I can use it all summer long. Also that way even after I have the baby the girls can still go swimming. What do you think I should do?

My kids are 5, 3, and 1. I won't be pregnant over the summer but I'll have a newborn. I don't plan on swimming with them so they are getting life jackets and this is the pool we decided on.

About 3 feet. BUT, that's also the total height of the pool. The water will be just a little under that. The filter is on the side almost at the bottom so if you need to put less water in it then you have that option. I'd suggest measuring your kids and seeing how tall they are depending on the depth you want them to be in. We measured ours and the 5 and 3 year old will be able to touch bottom.

Oh, and you just inflate the ring of the pool and fill it with water. I have one friend who doesn't use chemicals in hers and hers never looked gross or anything. And she's had hers for about 3 years now I think.
