When I was pregnant with my son, I asked the Dr. about hot tubs and he told me that as long as they are right around body temp that there was nothing wrong with them. As a matter of fact it can help the muscles relax & stretch.

I am 5 Mo. and my doctor told me to stay away from hot tubs, bu that "warm" baths were good and relaxing without the danger.
