  • Now that I don't know. I'd ask your dr. I've herd so long as its lower than your body temp it should be fine but I don't know. I would not put any type of fragrance in there though. I'd call your dr first just to be safe.

  • its ok to take baths hot and i would lthink get in hottub too you just cant stay in too long b/c the real danger is your body temp rising and making the baby's bodt temp rise, just dont get too hot or dont stay in for over like 15 mins, im 38 weeks and i am fixing to take a hot bath, i wish i had a hottub to get in. just dont make it over like 102 degrees
