I love to take a hot bath right before bed, it helps me sleep...has anyone heard that it is harmful?

my doc told me NO hot baths only showers.if you take a bath it should be your body temp so it doesn't heat up the baby.sorry

I have heard that baths are okay, but should not be above 98/99 degrees..which for me is not hot enough so I figure "why bother"?

You can have warm baths, but not hot. No hot showers either my doctor told me...

Thanks, I guess I will have to try showers to relax me at night. What a bummer!!!

Try not to make the water too hot, and if you are worried, get a nice cold drink, like a gla__s of water or a smoothie or something. That will help keep your core temp down. I use that method. If you start sweating, get out!
