please tell me i didn't screw this up

my dreads are about 2-3 weeks old, still very young, but they looked great (to me) and i love(d) them. i went swimming this morning and now i'm worried i did some damage. just want to know if they need cpr or i'm just losing it...
this is what they looked like a few days ago:



and now that i went swimming, they are skinnier (i liked the fatness of them before) and have unlocked for the bottom 1/3 of each dread. i'm slowly re-backcombing the bottoms and palm rolling like it's goin' out of style, but will i get the chunkiness of them back???  this is a pic of how they got curley at the bottoms (i have naturally curley hair) and, although it's a bad picture, this is what they look like now:




am i nuts? cuz i feel like i've made them go skinny  :P   and there's nothing wrong with skinny dreads, but i personally liked them a bit fatter.
