Okay, so pregnant women should avoid hot tubs because they can increase the risk of miscarriage, right? And as far as I understand, the reason for that is because the extreme heat raises your body temperature so much so that it can be very dangerous to your baby. Is that correct? Does that mean I should also avoid warm/hot baths? What about hot showers? (And by "hot," I don't mean scalding... just a little more than warm.)
What about swimming in a pool? I'm going to go visit my boyfriend this weekend and there's a pool at his apartment complex so I was hoping I'd be able to get in. It's not a heated pool; in fact, he said that the water is pretty cold. So can cold water also be harmful to the baby? If so, I won't do it. I just thought it'd be best to ask first!!
