Im 36 weeks. I've been going in our hot tub almost everynight, or every-other night for the past 2 months. I've called in tella-heath and asked them if this was alright. They said as long as the water was at 120, and that I didnt stay in too long, or stay fully under for too long. -I also dont have the jetts pounding on my baby, only my legs and feet.
I just wanted to ask, if being in a hot tub will induce early labour?
With my 1st, I got to go in the hot tub at the hospital to help things along. Will me being in the hot tub at 36 weeks make me go into labour early'r then I should?

Normal community hot tub regulations are 104 but for pregnant women it is 102. If you surpass this temp your baby's body temp will also surpass it and just like a fever this can cause serious brain injury. This is the same whether you are 12 weeks, 20 weeks, or 40 weeks.
