  • Yes, you can, they're great when you're preg actually. I used to take them almost every night. Just make sure the water is not too hot and don't put too much stuff in the water. I even used to go into the hot tub at the gym. I would just sit on the first step and lean back. that way my feet and legs are in, my back too, but not my belly. Loopholes my dear!

  • you can take baths as long as they aren't totally hot and I have also heard that some bath beads and salts are a NO NO while you are pregnant :( I take baths when my back is killing me but like I said the water is not Hot so then I just end up taking a shower instead if my back pain didn't go away. hope that helps :)

  • I agree with all the pp, it's fine as long as it's not too hot. I even took a bath when i was in labor before i went to the hospital, it did wonders to get through the contractions :)
