A big awkward tummy, aching bones and joints, swollen ankles
… it’s hard to get comfortable when you are expecting!
It seems unfair to think that, on top of all the aches and
pains, you can’t even take a hot bath. Many people believe
that pregnant women should avoid hot baths because of the
potential harm they can cause to an unborn child.
While it is true that hot water can cause problems in a pregnancy,
there is nothing wrong with taking a warm bath. It can help
to relax your aching muscles and rest your tired, swollen
feet. A warm bath is a welcome treat for any weary mom or
mom-to-be. Once your water breaks you should not take a bath
of any kind. Before that point, you can enjoy as much bathing
as you would like, as long as the water temperatures do not
exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Some would call 100 degrees
a hot bath! So kick your feet up, lay back and relax …
you deserve it!
