Hello All: I am 20 weeks pregnant and my husband and I are planning a weekend getaway. The rooms have deluxe jacuzzi's, are there any dangers in going in them? Please advise ASAP. Thanks in advance!

I am sure you will get mixed opions on this one but i was told to stay out of them by my doctor because they can cause a rise in your body temp.

I was told the same. I was actually to not to get in a bath or shower that was too hot, so this would definately make a jacuzzi a big no no. Anything that could raise your temp above 102 F is dangerous.

My dr. said it would be ok as long as I only stay in for a few minutes. Hot baths are the only thing that make me feel better at the end of the day. He said it would take about 15 minutes to get overheated, so I can have my hot bath and stay in for 10 minutes. Which is fine by me. I'd say it's ok for a few minutes, then maybe sit on the edge and dip in your feet while you ma__sage your mans shoulders! :) It would still be romantic!! :)

There is usually a thermostat on the tubs too....maybe if you turn it down to a lower temperature that would help. Enjoy your weekend!!

I was told that as long as you don't spend too much time in them its fine. try alternating between the hot tub and the pool. The pool can cool you down then you can return to the hottub. THere isn't much danger as long as they are short visits to the tub. Its all to do with internal body temperature. You will know its too hot when you start to sweat.

I've heard that water above 100 degrees is not good while you are pregnant. I would just make sure the water is not too hot.

Hi, Just wanted to say that the reason for avoiding hot tubs while pregnant is because it could raise your body temp to 102 or higher, if this happens it has been linked to neural tube defects in babies, such as spina bifida. If I were you I would ask my doc about it. I personally wouldn't get in with a risk like this, but like everyone else said, if you don't stay in too long, maybe it'll be okay, and that was a good idea whoever said about turning down the temp on the hot tub. That would be the thing to do I think. Have fun!
