Short of a wetsuit, does have anyone have recommendations for swimwear to stay warm during early morning pool swims? I'm pretty much a wimp when it comes to cold anything...

Get some nut huggers.

wear a swim cap, or get one of those neopreme hat things. They help a bunch, other then that, you should be swimming enough to be warm

Cover yourself in Crisco.

Definitely a cap. You could try a rash guard (spandex shirt) too. A shot of tequila perhaps? ;)
How cold is the pool? And the ambient temperature? Are you doing drills?

I expected the funny suggestion...and much appreciated, in fact.
Seriously, I already wear a cap. The pool isn't that cold to everyone else, but I haven't taken temperature. I'll ask that.
The rash guard is a good suggestion...I'll try that next time.
I'm doing a lot of drilling in the pool...total immersion stuff...so that I can stop sucking at sidekickins on my left side. Maybe not the best way to keep warm in the water.
Anyway, this morning I did a 100m sprint just before getting out. That helped a lot.
That doesn't mean nut huggers and crisco aren't still options. :)
