How can I safely take a bath during pregnancy?
screennnnnname posted:
I am 5 wks, and as someone who enjoys taking baths for relaxation purposes, I need some medical advice. I have read from some sources that baths during pregnancy are unsafe, from others that it is safe at certain temps or time limits. Please advise. Thank you.

Baths are perfectly safe during pregnancy. The danger is if they are too hot but as bath water cools pretty quick, that shouldn't be a problem.
