    I could be wrong but I thought it was no hot baths? Warm baths ok?
    And definitely no spas

    Anything higher than body temp is a no no because it can raise your body temperature/cook the placenta depending on sources.
    Personally I think it's a bit OTT, your not going to go jumping into 100 degree water or anything.

    Hahaha love it.

    You just can't let yourself overheat. Common sense really isn't it lol? So much you read argh..

    I have a spa bath and have cleaned it and it's jets out in preparation for use as pain relief when I go into labour before I go to the hospital!

    No washing hands either. Or dishes. Someone else must do the dishes for the next 9 months. I'd be wary about handling wet clothing straight from the washing machine too. Another task to reassign while pregnant.

    Water is evvvvvvil!!

    Yes and you mustn't raise your hands above your head or the cord will wrap around baby's neck - so even if you COULD get the wet washing out of the machine, you couldn't hang it on the line

    Where's that old wives tale thread? Was that recent or years ago?

    ETA - this post is heavily laden with sarcasm.......
