going to the beach

So I'm in California so it still is pretty hottt. and this weekend my husband wants to go to the beach. I'm 13 weeks and I was wondering if it is safe or not to get in the water?I was thinking maybe the intensity of the waves could hurt my stomach, or maybe I could get a yeast infection easier? Idk that's what was crossing my mind. So would it be ok?

I'd say its fine. Keep your back to the waves or be lower than them hitting you directly in the stomach. But I've never been hit by a wave that knocked the wind out of me, just knocked me into the water. I don't think you'll have to worry about a yeast infection. But I could be wrong. Maybe avoid sitting in the sand and just wash really good when you get home.

I also live in California and I went to the beach multiple times. The last time I went to the beach I was 25 weeks (im currently 36 weeks) and I was still going in the water. The waves did hit me but I did turn my back just to be safe. But go ahead and enjoy the beach just be smart (:

I live in Nz and I was bombing off the cliffs into the river I'm sure you will be fine lol :) just have a shower after so your skin doesn't go dry and you don't have sand in places you don't want it, usual care :)
