    Default Can I really not have a bath?

    We moved house while I was pregnant to a place with NO BATH. Thankfully the bathroom is huge so I got DP and FIL to build one for me. I would not have survived pregnancy without it, no way!

    Enjoy your baths! Just don't boil yourself

    Think about it this way. Everyone recomends swimming during pregnancy, the only differences between swimming and baths is that you are more submerged when swimming and that baths are warmer. Just dont make them too warm and all will be well.

    Raising your core temp can cause m/c in the first tri. But you can still have baths. My guide was when I started to feel hot in the face, it was too hot. Sucks bc I love really hot baths and showers. As long as they aren't too hot, have them to your hearts content

    I read or heard about a study where they were measuring exactly how much women's temperatures go up in a hot bath, apparently the temperature would have to be so hot that it would burn your skin before it actually caused any harm to bub. But like the others have said, just don't have it too hot and you'll be fine.

    I had baths all through my pregnancy

    Quite hot at times too. But was extra careful in the first tri

    Getting in was easy, but when I had to get out I didn't bend, and I couldn't turn on my side. I was in a hotel and my sister had gone out. I rolled around in there like a beached whale for 20 minutes before I finally somehow used my neck muscles to get me out (worked at the time but can't explain it!!).

    It was funny but it did make me wary of baths after that!

    Ok I KNOW this isn't funny, but right now I have a mental image of a turtle stuck on its back poking its neck out to turn itself back over
