Agreed on the bath, you can take one you just want to keep it warm not scalding hot, and same with showers- don't take really hot, really long showers. I'm trying to remember the other things you aren't supposed to do. I remember that you should stay away from lunchmeats and soft cheeses (feta, blue cheese) because they can be contaminated with listeria which can harm the baby- I think it's rare but it does happen. And avoid caffeine, especially early on in the pregnancy. Maybe someone else has a better memory than me but that's about all I can think of other than the obvious stuff- no drinking, smoking, no crazy strenuous exercise. Kind of just the commom sense stuff. And listen to your body, if you suspect something is wrong don't be afraid to call your doctor even after hours, that is why they are there and that is why they make the big bucks! :) Best of luck, Mama!
