    Default Bubble baths

    I've had a really crappy day today and the thought of relaxing in a warm bubble bath with a good book this evening is bliss. I'm almost 28 weeks pregnant and am under the impression that baths are okay as long as they are not too hot. Is there a time in pregnancy when baths should be avoided?

    So long as your cervix has no issues, like you havent needed a cervical stitch or similar, and your bath is not too hot, enjoy!

    I had one every night when I was pregnant with DS1. And loved it. I think it's fine. It's more of an issue if your a swim teacher whose in the water for up to four hours at a time.

    So kick back, relax and enjoy!!!

    I'm currently 16 weeks pregnant with my 5th baby and I've had a bath nearly every night with all of my pregnancies. I think it's one of the best ways to relieve all of those aches and pains and the added bonus is that I get some time out to relax every night! Love my baths...

    I think spa is a no but a normal bath is fine. I read somewhere that a good rule of thumb is that if you dont have to slowly lower yourself into it then the temp is ok! I have a bath with bubbles every night - bliss!!
