you should stop using the sauna until after the baby is born :( there is a potential danger to the developing fetus if your body temperature rises above 102 degrees.

Ok, ladies. I did some research on the internet.
People from sauna countries (northen europe) go on with their everyday life that includes sauna.
Of course, it is suggested that not the highest temeratures, and not so much drastic temperature changes (after sauna jumping into cold lake), but they still go sauna if their body tells them that it's ok.
Just here, in america there is no sauna culture.
