Well, I have taken the plunge literally this past week. I have gone to two water aerobic sessions at the local pool and it has been a lot of fun. Everyone says how it is such a great exercise to do while you are pregnant and it has been crazy hot this week, so getting in a pool has been a lot of fun and very refreshing. It doesn't real feel like to are doing any thing that hard or that would work your muscles. But let me tell you, afterwards it is very clear to me that have been working out.
Another interesting thing about water aerobics is that we are sharing the pool with a few kids who are having private swimming lessons. So, we have to dodge each other and we get to hear a few fun conversations. Here is my favorite from yesterday, which came in the middle of a lesson on water and pool safety:
S(wimming Teacher): Should you run by the pool?
C(hild, a boy, probably around age 4): No!
S: Can you jump off the diving board any time you want?
C: No! You need to have a life jacket on.
S: Who should you find and tell if something bad is happening at the pool and you need help?
C: Umm...my mom!
S: Who else?
C: A fireman!
S: Good, but who else could you tell who is here at the pool?
S: Maybe a life guard?
C: Yeah! A life guard!
So, I am glad that I have stated water aerobics and I hope to go as often as I can while we are around this summer.
