Jacuzzis, hot baths, thermal spas and footbaths. Can someone explain??
OK, so I understand that the first 3 are a no no in pregnancy due to the risk of raising my body temp too much. I do have hot baths but not for long, and have avoided Jacuzzis and spas.
On Weds hubby and I are off to Iceland. Part of the trip includes a visit to the Blue Lagoon thermal spa. I have accepted I can't go in and swim or lounge about, so had planned to take a book and sit by the side dangling my feet in, or having a paddle.
Then I remembered we're not supposed to use footbaths, and paddling in a thermal pool is basically the same. Can someone explain the problem? I thought about the temp thing, but then advice says hot water bottles are fine since they are too small to raise core body temp too much. I am utterly confused, don't want to miss out through being paranoid, but also want to keep babybean safe.
