  • You can, the only thing there is too worry about is that the water shouldn't be too hot. I think it's like 96 degrees or something. You're not supposed to raise your body temp too high. For some reason your shower water can be as hot as you like but the bath has to be a little cooler.

  • You can take a bath as hot as you just an old wives tale. You would become uncomfortable long before you could raise your core temperature high enough to cause damage.

  • Yes - baths are wonderful, that close to the end I always have my dh nearby to help me out of the tub though to make sure I don't slip.
