Can taking a hot bath at 38 weeks be harmful?


Is taking a hot bath at 38 weeks harmful? Like can your water break while your in there and not know? and could it induce labor?

I think you have to be careful with 'hot baths' throughout the pregnancy.. I don't really know though so i'm not much help.

i still have hot baths but not as hot as i used to because its supposed to make blood pressure go up ect.

i dont think u have anything to worry about tho so carry on with ur hot baths lol and ive been told once ur waters go u can tell by looking at ur bump because it goes down if u no what i mean

Hot baths is something I love. And have never stopped. I would test it first and if I felt it made me feel really hot or pukey, I'd put more cold in.

I LOVE hot baths.....before I was pregnant I would have it soooo hot I'd feel faint or my head would throb as I got out..........but I loved it!!

I still have them pretty hot.... but I only have about 2 a week. More to conserve water though!!
