Cold bath?

I know you shouldnt really lay in a hot bath tub for a while being 8 months. But I havent heard anything much about laying in a really cold bath. Its hot here, and I think Im also getting a hot flash lol. You think its alright if I lay in some cold water for a while?

  • I think that it's not the temperature of the water that is the consideration, it's the cleanliness of the water, does it have soaps, or anything that could get inside you and irritate you and the baby. Why don't you get wet cloths and put them all over you and sit in front of a fan. Hope this
