Wow! I'm a bit rusty. I thought I would easily be able to bang out 1000 yards, but after a mere 8 laps my arms were on fire! I had to stop after 10 laps and stretch and rest. Then I did another 10 laps. And another and another. I finally stopped at 1000 yards. I had hoped to do it continuously, but it's been a long time.
A friend of mine from high school said swimming would feel like heaven for this pregnant body. I thought I would love it because I don't have any nausea and I love not having to have my clothes squeeze the living daylights out of me. Now, I didn't hate it, but parts of it were weird. For example, everything stretches weird when I put my hands above my head. I feel like I am going to bust out a stretch mark right then and there. I am trying my hardest not to get any stretch marks! But I did enjoy that there was no pressure on my belly and my bladder. It was great to do a workout and not have to take four million bathroom breaks. Hopefully swimming will get better and easier and feel a little more natural the more I do it.
