Hot Baths...


....Afternoon all

Ive just had a lovely hot bath and i now feel absolutely drained of any energy i had.

THEN I remembered reading on some pregnancy site that in actual fact, hot baths are bad for us preggo's...Is this true? Anyone else taking hot baths?

Im kinda worried now

HELP...

They are to be avoided, but mostly in the early half of pregnancy when things are developing. Now it's more of a concern for your blood pressure. I'm sure your just fine, drink lots of water to replenish anything you sweated away and relax, watch movements!

I didn't want to read and run- it be ok. It more like really, really hot baths all the time that are not too good and are that hot that you can't sit in it. You will be ok- take it easy.

I agree that they are to be avoided in early pregnancy but you should be ok now, so long as it wasnt so hot it hurt to sit in it or anything. Drink plenty as other mum2bs have said and relax

Iv had boilin hot baths all way through so far as didnt know until recently the risks and I cant be doing with luke warm ones lol

My mum had boiling hot baths with all 3 of us and she went over with all three lol so I dont think its anything bad a long as you keep yourself hydrated, crack open the window and if you start feeling dizzy get out straight away

A nice hot bath is fine. They are more concerned with hot tubs. You shouldn't be submerged above 101 degrees (especially in the 1st tri) and you shouldn't let you core body temp get over 102 degrees. There is no way your tub got that hot or stayed that hot. I think you'll be fine, but I'm not a dr.

According to the American Pregnancy Association:
A hot bath, which is not uncomfortable or scalding, is a safer way to relax. In a bath much of your upper body will remain out of the water, making you less likely to overheat. Additionally, the water in a bath begins to cool off, as opposed to a hot tub, further reducing any risk of overheating.

Keep relaxing!!!
