Hot water bath when pregnant
I have been taking baths since i am pregnant and i love bathing in hot water and since it was winter i guess they were really hot. Why is this not good for you? could i have caused damage to my baby in any way. I am now 11 weeks pregnant.

The baby does not have a way of lowering its temperature as adults do. If all is okay with the baby now, there should not be a problem later.
