Our expert says:
I have no idea, though there is no reason why pregnancy would elevate the risk above that of anyone else (that is, the risk of infection will be similar, but the consequences of being infected may be different). But I certainly have not heard of any research or any other reason to suggest that it is risky. The pools at gyms to have to conform to a certain minimum hygiene requirement, and so the pool will have to be chemically treated in order to minimize this risk. Whether or not all the pools in all the gyms meet these requirements is another story - you would be well within your rights to ask about it, though, and find out what is going on in your particular gym. But in general, there has never been a reason to think that it's unsafe. In fact, the air may be more of a health hazard than the water, because of air conditioning issues, and you can't treat the air like you can the water.
