Hi so i am just shy of 5 weeks pregnant with our second ivf miricle! Ds is one and has swimming lessons once a week that i really enjoy doing with him. His lessons are in a hydrotherapy pool that is 36 degrees though.. His lessons are 30 minutes. Is it to hot and long for me to be in there with him?? My mum has been taking him but i would love to go back in with him. Any advice would be great!

I did swimming lessons with my son with no troubles. I only skipped and made my dad so them when morning sickness was in full swing. I found the water made it worse.

I think 32 degrees is the recommended maximum (What to expect when..), but I would have a chat with your FS/OB.

I did swimming with dd until 34wks and we were in the hydro pool. Ours sits at 34° and it was something I didn't think of in retrospect. Double check to be sure
Also like pp mentioned, I found being in the water early with really bad ms a form of torture

Uh oh I've been still going to our hydrotherapy pool and I'm 9 weeks. Most of the time the top half of your body is out of the water though so you can still regulate your temperature. I think the problem is sitting in a hot bath or jacuzzi up to your neck and you over heat that is the problem. I could be wrong though.

The recommended temperature for a baby bath is 37.5-38.5 deg, which is quite a nice temperature. I can almost guarantee that any bath you have at home will be warmer than 36 deg, unless you actually like tepid/lukewarm baths! Jacuzzis and hot tubs are out for sure, but that's simply because they are hotter.
The hydro pool is less than this so should be good. I would keep going with the swimming lessons.

A friend of mine is a physio and she spent hours each day in the hydro pool. Her ob had no issues with it at all. Just make sure that you drink plenty of water and have a banana after to get your potassium levels back up
