I know this sounds like a silly question but my moms friend insists I check with my dr about swimming in the lakes while pregnant. We have a trip planned this weekend and she will be there and is super worried about me in the lake. I've done some googling and did see some good and bad stuff but it just seems silly to me and I just feel dumb bugging my dr about it. So before I call I thought I'd put the question out there to see what kind of responses I get. Ive seen so much stuff about bacteria in the water but it's fine every other time just not pregnant? My vervix is closed so no worries about anything getting in to baby and I don't plan on drinking the water or anything so I think I'll be fine.
