Swimming can eliminate strain on your joints, which can be extremely helpful for pregnant women who have to constantly carry around additional weight. In the ocean, a pregnant woman needs to be aware of what can be lurking in the water, including jellyfish, anemones and hydroids, which can sting and cause pain. In rare cases, sharks can also be a danger. Avoid swimming in areas where sharks are common and swim with other people. Avoid swallowing ocean water because it can be contaminated with untreated sewage from fertilizers, pets, boats and faulty septic systems. Chemicals and bacteria in the water can cause gastrointestinal illness.
