In brief: Yes

This is considered a good way to exercise in pregnancy if done in moderation.
I wouldn't plan to swim the english channel.

In brief: Yes

Not only good...Great! especially as pregnancy progresses and becomes more uncomfortable, swimming is a wonderful way to get exercise and take a load off sore feet.

In brief: Yes

Swimming is an excellent way to exercise during pregnancy.
It works many different muscle groups and is a great cardiovascular workout all at the same time. It is safe to swim as long as water temperatures are not too hot or too cold.
