If You Were Active for At Least Three Months Prior to Becoming Pregnant...

Be patient with your changing body and acknowledge your hard work. Check into local gyms or recreation centers to learn what type of aqua aerobic classes they offer. While some centers may offer a prenatal water class, do not hesitate to join a regular class. Provided you are mindful of any discomfort, you'll be just fine. Not interested in socializing? Use a variety of stroke techniques to create a 30-45 minute workout. Be a fish for a day and swim a half mile!

Sample Workout:

  • Aqua aerobic class


If You Have Always Been Active...

Did you know that it is possible to sweat in the water? It only takes hard work and determination. Grab an aqua jogging belt to work your entire body in the deep end of the pool, set out to complete a one mile lap swim, or take a dip in the local lake or ocean and swim up and down the shoreline. Remember to re-hydrate and refuel at the end of your workout.

Sample Workout:

  • Aqua jogging for 30 minutes
