There are all of these rumors about things that are unhealthy for a pregnant woman to do...
Examples: eating deli meat/hot dogs, sleeping on your back, standing for long periods of time, drinking/eating caffeine, running on hard pavements, using electric blankets, traveling in the third trimester......etc. etc.
But I have never heard the "dont take hot showers/baths" thing.
I know that you aren't supposed to use electric blankets because they could potentially overheat your body TOO quickly.
I'm still taking my hot showers. Is this bad for baby?
The only bubble baths I enjoy are almost scalding hot, lol, so I've just been sticking with hot showers till after. I haven't heard anything about hot showers being bad...I don't feel like my body temp gets as high as it does in the hot baths.
Thank you Alethia for my gorgeous siggy!!
I had my thyroid out in September, since then i'm ALWAYS freezing (Deep cold)...So I take HOT showers all the time....I try not to stay in too long, and when I start to feel myself getting over heated I get out....I'm not sure if it's safe or not, I don't think that i've ever been told by any of my dr's that I can't take hot showers (just hot tubs)...I also eat deli meat and sleep on my back (at least for now).
