Pool Floats For Pregnant Women Exist, and We Can Hear the Ladies Yelling "Finally!"
Being pregnant is wonderful and all, but with it comes a litany of restrictions, like cutting down on your caffeine intake, kicking your weekly sushi orders to the curb, and, come the second trimester, no more lying on your stomach OR your back. Some people enjoy pregnancy, and that's wonderful, but I was not one of those people. I was routinely uncomfortable, with pings and zings firing off inside of my body like a firework show. Being told I had to alter the way I relaxed in bed was one of the more challenging constraints I faced. What I wouldn't have given to be able to lie on my stomach, baby bump and all.
Well, now women can. Maternity-friendly pool floaties exist, and I can already hear my pregnant sidekicks roaring in excitement. With a hole cut out just for your growing bump, you can relieve lower-back pressure and just chill in the water without worrying about your baby (though if you have concerns, check with your doctor).
