    Default Hot bath

    At 31 weeks, is there anything better in the world? Sore back sore feet can't sleep, nice hot bath with some lavender oil and nice smelly candle = best ever would love a glass of wine though hahaha,
    What was the best thing to make yous feel well "human" again while pregnant ?

    A back rub. Never get those, though

    If only DS1 was a bit older and could be trained

    I agree, bath is amazing! Osteo is fantastic too, though I'm usually quite sore afterwards. Hydrotherapy pool- takes all the weight away

    Swimming in a heated pool. Makes you weightless! I used to use a couple of the pool noodles and just float around relaxing. A little disappointing getting out of the pool though realising the beautiful weightless feeling won't last

    I have the bath running as we speak.

    Mind you, at almost 39 weeks, it's getting harder and harder to climb out of the thing once I'm done. It's a tad embarrassing having to call DP to come and help me out of the tub!

    Oh the glamour of pregnancy!

    Now what's the story with hot baths? Some people say stay away from them, others ( including some doctors) are ambivalent about them. I'm only 14 weeks, but looove hot baths... Have given them up for showers, just in case. One website recommended having them no hotter than 37 degrees (body temp) but I tried that the other night and it was awful!!! Just really tepid! Got out straight away and had a shower instead! What are people's thoughts on this?

    I'm also 31 weeks and have never been much of a bath person till now! Lately a hot bath before bed has been my saviour.
