As long as you're not in there so long it raises your body temp too far, you should be fine. I take pretty hot bath sometimes. I just make sure they aren't too long.

I take pretty hot showers myself and it hasn't hurt anything.
My doctor never said anything about it, she just said no hot baths or hot tubs.
Anything you are comfortable with should be fine.

I was told your not supposed to. By my doctor, actually. I take abnormally hot showers and I would constantly get light headed during them once I got pregnant. I told my doctor about it and she told me I shouldn't be taking hot showers, but maybe that's just because I like to burn the first layer of my flesh off. :D

As far as i know its alright. I did through my entire pregnancy. My showers were to the point where my skin was really red and hot afterwards.

It's fine :)



But if you start over heating...get out.
I always take hot hot hot showers and one day I just overheated and passed out in the middle of the shower when I was like 20 weeks and just laid there until my mom found me. Luckily everything was okay!

just dont get overheated! I did that and passed out in the shower, then threw up all over. It was horrible

i took them all the time.
dont let it run on your belly for too long and once you start feeling like you might start to over heat and get the tired feeling get out

I took really hot showers all the time while pregnant, and my LO is fine. I took a few hot baths too, just don't stay in there for a long time.
