As its soo hot here in the UK I have filled up my daughters ten foot paddling pool, earlier I went in it, I sat down and wallowed like a huge hippo, but now I am starting to panic, my belly still feels cold and had no baby movement, is it dangerous to go into cold water while pregnant? I presume it is the same temperature as the ocean, but I know ocean/sea swimming is not reccommended because of the risk of contracting infection, but never heard about it being dangerous because its too cold for baby.
any responses much appreciated.
thanks for your response, funny you mention tea, my midwife told me that if the baby is not moving, a large glass of cold water will wake him up, but that does nothing for my little fella, I have noticed hot sweet decaf tea does work, I will brew one right away and see!
going in cold water can't do any harm to the baby i was told that you shouldn't go in hot tubs b/c your body temp is too hot. I am sure that the reason why your little fella isn't moving is probably b/c he is sleeping drink something with sugar and it might do the trick. hope all goes well
thanx for your info, I read jenny mcarthy's book belly laughs, its full of hilarious anecdotes from her pregnancy, one of which was her swiftly jumping out of a hot tub when some lady told her she was cooking her baby!
hugs to all
A cold water pool is fine. I was swimming (in a pool) while pg with my little guy as late as the last week of august--had him 1st week of sept. Probalby because you were so relaxed that he is just relaxing also---it is good to cool off--if you are over heated and anxious just think what the little guy is. As long as you don't raise your core body temperature the baby is just fine.
I would drink some orange juice. that always jump starts my little one. I'm 31 weeks.
I'm sure everything is fine. They react to changes in temperature, light and sounds at that stage so he/she is probably just enjoying the feeling.
