  • I didn't, but that's b/c my OB said it's extra-easy to get an infection while you're preggo and I get yeast infections from baths even when I'm NOT pregnant.

  • Yes just don't take HOT ones. And its not good to stay in over 20-30 mins.

  • yes you can but like Hayley said dont take super hot ones and dont stay in them more then 20 or 30mins plus stay away from bubble baths when your pregnant your chance of infection goes up and when you use these things it goes up again. But i take a bath atleast once a week to just relax. Id get in our hot tub if i could but I cant so its the closes thing i can think of lol.
