  • Raises not only your body temperature but the baby's as well. Try a lukewarm bath. If you really need to relax, take a lukewarm bubble bath, light some candles, dim the light, rest your head on a small rag on the back of the bathtub and listen to some calming music. Taking a hot bath or using a hot tub is very dangerous during all three trimesters of pregnancy. It has proven to raise the baby's body temperature, which is very dangerous and can cause serious complications.
