Does anyone know why this is dangerous?

I had been wondering this as well.
Maybe it is because of the dangers/higher possibility of fainting?

It raises you body temperature and can raise your blood pressure - both or which can be harmful to baby. Same goes for why you aren't allowed to use spas, steam rooms or saunas.

actually i was wondering this last night - i did have a hot bath because my back as killing me and when i got in dont think bean like it started moving around...so filled it with cold water...as i panicked!

I think it's cos it can raise your BP and there is a risk of fainting but mainly it's cos LO can't regulate their own temperature, so could easilly get too hot (Just like if a newborn got too hot, it could be dangerous for them).
As long as the bath is comfortable for you though (and doesn't make your skin go bright pink!, it should be fine. xx

I read in one of my books that as long as you can ease yourself straight in (as opposed to my old bathtimes when I used to inch myself in until my skin was burnt and I could move a bit further!) then the temp is fine.

I love hot baths!!!
I've had mine a couple of degrees cooler but still hot enough. Im not burning and Im not sure what I'd do without them.

It is definitely to do with the baby not being able to control their own temperature - it is dangerous for them to get too hot - same goes with saunas and jacuzzis.

i have really hot baths im naghty but unless it hurts when i get in its not hot enough, normally just hot water i rarely put any cold in my baths.
i cant have them cool its not the same!
didnt realise it was harmful to baby tho. but this is my 2nd and i had hot baths all thro 1st pregnancy..
maybe i'll add a splash of cold! x

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
