    Hi all, I am here to get some suggestions. I am 4 months pregnant. I used to spend a lot of time in the pool before since it helped me a lot to reduce stress. But now while consulting the doctor he told me that my pressure levels were high and advised me to do some exercises. While surfing online I came across this article http://www.soldapools.com/blog/swimming/advantages-swimming-pregnancy/ and I found it interesting. Is it safe to swim while you are pregnant? Please chime in with some good suggestions. Also, it would be great if you could suggest some tips for reducing stress. Thanks in advance.

    I think that swimming is a great and healthy idea. When I was pregnant I was in a swimming pool 3-4 times a week and this helps me to have a better and painless birth.
    Also, to feel more comfortable when I was pregnant, I changed my bed. The old one was too old and not so comfortable. I found http://www.comfortmeble.pl/meble-do-sypialni/italia-style.html in this page many interesting propositions not only for my bed but and for baby furniture 🙂
