    Well they had better be, cause its the only thing that has kept me sane this past few months! I read in one of my weekly updates that baths are just fine and safe. That it will not cause any kind of infections (it said it was pretty much a old wifes tale) Unless your waters have gone, then it is best to stay out of the bath :)

    I've never heard that it wasn't. I know it's safe to take a regular bath, so I don't see why not...bubbles don't do harm...unless of course your waters has broken then I'd refrain from it.

    Just make sure you rinse your lady parts before you get out of the tub clean water. The soap/bubbles if not rinsed off can cause irritation and bladder infections. Especially during pregnancy b/c you dont realize the symptoms. otherwise enjoy your baths! I wish I had a cushioned tub to lay in! Sometimes I put a folded towel down b.c the tub is so hard!
