    *Raises hand* another fan here!! I too have never really been a "bath person".. sounds strange to DH who loves them, but the sooner I'd get in the sooner I'd want out! I'd get bored, lol.. but not anymore!!! I'm 30 weeks and LOVE love love them! I was in for almost 2 hours last night Just bring in my stack of magazines, lavender Bathox, my novel and kick back! I think it's the weather, as well. Being cold I adore my hot bubble baths. Just wish I could bring the laptop in as well

    I've been under the impression you can have hot baths just don't live or spend huge chunks of time in there if the temp is too hot. I think this applies to spas more than baths.

    I think they are ok as long as you don't feel overheated!

    I'm not generally a bath person either but as soon as I hit about 30 weeks they become my best friend. I like to soak with music playing on the days I'm totally alone in the house. Only downside is its a PITA to get out by myself.

    I also like to softify the couch (thats a word) with my doona and my big pregnancy pillow and watch countless episodes of whatever series is tickling my fancy. I do this when DH is home so he can fetch me whatever I crave. Sometimes it's nice to indulge the pregnancy and have him wait hand and foot on me.
