It’s common to feel “big” during the third trimester. You may experience water retention, bloating, and more physical discomfort. I highly recommend swimming or water exercise. In the water you’ll feel weightless and light- what a relief! Also, movement through the water will relieve pressure normally placed on your joints and muscles which will relieve discomfort typically felt in the low back and buttocks. Take advantage of the hot summer months and take a dip in the pool…your body will thank you!
