  • they say you shouldnt go into a hot tub when your pregnant cuz the water can be over 100 degrees, i think as long as the shower water doesnt reach over your natural body temp, you should be ok

  • Not unless it is enough to raise your body temp for awhile.

  • I took a hot hot shower almost everyday the last few months of my pregnancy. Helped relax my muscles. It felt so good and never did any harm.
