Have just learnt today that hot baths are a no-no in the first trimester. I'm five weeks and have probably had 4 or 5 since conceiving. Am really worried
Has anybody else had hot baths in the first trimester and gone on to have a healthy baby?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Occasional hot baths are not a problem as long as you do not go for them daily. Avoid having further hot baths. Drink plenty of water, maintain a good healthy diet with lots of fruits. Be in regular follow-up with your obstetrician.
