    If you are predisposed to UTIs, then no bath. Apparently not an old wives tale in these circumstances.

    Otherwise warm baths ok, nothing over 38 degrees (I bought a bath thermometer). Hot temperatures cause increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth (according to miscarriage specialist).
    I was told swimming in public pools is also ok as long as it isn't a hydrotherapy pool.

    Careful what you put in the bath as far as essential oils go.

    Apart from that, baths are awesome! DS used to kick, kick, kick when I was in the bath.
