I am not sure but i think that it has something to do with the temperture of the water...I am haveing lukewarm baths at the moment.

HI Buster, and congrats! I have been busy elsewhere lately and hadn't caught up with your news.  YOu must be over the moon!

I was advised not to take a hot bath during the 2ww because the hot water draws blood to the skin and away from the uterus.  I guess the same thing applies during PG, though the longer you have been PG, the safer it gets.  I had lots of baths later on, but not at the beginning.

All the best, and lots of sticky vibes for your beanie.

I too loved my baths but had problems getting in and out when I got bigger!!  ;D ;D So, I was stuck with showers in the later stages so I would say go and enjoy your nice relaxing baths before you 1) get too big and 2) have a baby who doesn't want you out of their sight for more than 30secs!!  ;D ;D 

I now have to shower with C sat in the bathroom doorway so I am in full view of him!  ;D ;D Not the most relaxing!!  ;D ;D I only get to have a soak at the weekend when DH takes C out for an hour or so!

Hi Kim,

My books say not to have the bathwater over 100F which is not too lukewarm but comfortable (although not hot like I like it).

Just wanted to say I agree with everyone's advice about not having the water too hot. One thing you may notice when you get to be v big (apart from the getting in and out issue - have someone to hand!) is that I found that dh would have a good old work out herself at the same time. I don't know how, but she could always tell when it was bathtime for mummy. Look out for some elbows and Knees jutting out!

Hi

I think as long as the water is not too hot then its fine.

Congratulations and I hope you feel better soon.
