    Of course you can :)
    Just stay away from hot tubs, those are way too hot.

    I have a hot bath I swear every night since i found out i was pregnant... Its my ONLY means of relaxation, hot water cools off the second it hits the tub, unless its a hot tub/jet. tub. As long as the water isn't burning your skin or higher than 100. I wouldn't worry about it... Though I do tend to a have a few hot baths that do turn my skin, but I always take my time getting in, by than the waters cool off.

    I've been wanting to take one soooo bad but was afraid to since I had a bladder infection. I finished my antibiotics last week so I'm wondering if a bath is ok now....would LOVE one!

    Haha I'm the same! It's pathetic but I have no energy for showers lately. I usually take showers 90% of the time but ever since getting pregnant I take nothing but baths!

    I also have a bath everyday. I've tried not to have them too hot but I can't bear Luke warm so they've been hot enough x I'm sure it's fine x

    I have a hot bath every day. So long as its not so hot that you cant easily get into it its fine. Nothing to worry about.

    Do you girls know what I can and can't use in a Spa? Hot tub, jacuzzi, steam room or sauna? A friend invited me to go with her but she doesn't know I'm pregnant yet! lol

    Thanks.

    You cant use any of these. You might get away with hot tub or jacuzzi if temp was under about 100 degrees but it would become obvious to your friend if you start asking them to reduce the temperature. Some would say dont risk it anyway no matter what the temperature (I personally wouldnt) x
