Hot watter bottles

Is it safe to use a hot water bottle on my stomach to help relieve my cramps? I googled it but found mixed reviews, will the heat hurt my baby?

depends on how hot. If the bottle is hot enough to turn your skin red, then that's probably too hot. I think what they want you to look out for is heat that raises your actual body temp, which can do damage, like saunas, hot tubs, or hot baths, a bit of warmth should be fine.
