    Swimming is really good because of its cardio benefits and it low impact.

    I have not gained a lot of tone from it personally. I have found that weight lifting and yoga helps in that department.

    But try not to worry. Stay as active as is healthy and eat as healthy as you can, and when the baby is born, walk with her a lot and breastfeed. Breastfeeding is really good for weight loss.

    If it makes you feel any better, we are all getting fat.:hug:

    swimming will help out a lot. It will also take the pressure of the weight off you. I love being in the pool. Good luck!!

    Awe hun, dont worry. U are doing a beautiful thing (well, we all are!!) everyone has these hang ups about their bodies, I know I do! The best thing you can do is just look after yourself and LO. Swimming is really good, like someone else said, its low impact and the water supports your body. It will help tone your arms and legs and make you feel better. Dont worry about how your body looks hun, I have my moments too when I cant bear to look in the mirror!! I just keep thinking about when bambino is here then I wont have time to even think about it!

    Swimming should help in that department but make sure you dont do anything like breast stroke with your SPD as that will aggravate it due to having to separate your legs. Good luck
