  • Baths are great while preggo! I am on bed rest so I can't take them anymore and i reallly miss them. Just make sure the water is not too hot!

  • Make sure the water is not too hot, and you don't stay in long enough to get overheated and you will be fine! Also, be careful about what types of bubble baths you use, bc some can cause yeast infections, which are real common with pregnancy! I wish I could take one, but for some reason I have gotten sick every time I've tried to take one since I got pregnant! Almost like sea sickness lol!

  • i read in a book that you shouldn't get in really hot water and stay there until you feel over heated. Its not good for the baby or yourself. Limit yourself to how long yo9u stay in the water
