    Default baths (not HOT) wwyd?

    So part of my me time i usually take a bath once every two weeks. Dh will put kids to bed and I soak away with a book and candles. with each pregnancy I think I remember being told by both an OB and MW that warm but not hot baths are OK if you have a fairly low risk pregnancy. Does anyone remember or know if that's OK. Just want to double check. I'm overdue on a good bath time.

    I took baths while I was pregnant. I think there can be a risk of raising your body temperature but I have not been warned of any other risks. I took lots of baths when I was pregnant with my other two. Not so much now though, I saw a spider in my bathroom so I'm not going to make myself that vulnerable ever again, spiders are scary... lol

    I'm a risk, so no baths at all for me. Around 32 weeks I normally get the go ahead for mild/warm baths (which I hate! I don't like feeling slightly cold, but kinda warm, lol). Sorry, I'm no help.

    Stepping in to answer With my kids thee ob's office gave little booklet of the okays and no-nos. As long as the bath is warm and not hot its okay. I also had a lot of back pain in pregnancy so a nice warm bath helped. The only trouble I had with baths is if I used any bubble bath products that were heavily scented I got an yeast infection so I wanted to mention to be careful with your soaps.

    Popping in... My midwife has always said as long as it doesn't turn and leave your skin red its fine. Its about not raising your body temp above 98.6.
