Using hot tube during pregnancy

I like hot tubes​, but on the hot tube's board in our Fitness Center we have a note: not recommended for pregnant women. And same for sauna. I skipped hot tubes and sauna during my pregnancy because I believe that a high temperature in those environments can be dangerous for a pregnant mom and her baby. The heat causes blood vessels to open up and the blood pressure can drop. Result-loss of blood supply to the baby.

I compromised and sat on the edge with just my legs in jacuzzi..just in case..

    I would have trouble biting my tongue. Whether or not it's my place, the woman might not even know! And to think the headache she could be saved from if it did cause issues if she was unaware.

      I heard this too and avoided them while pregnant.

        Yep, no hot tubs or excessively hot showers/baths during pregnancy for me. I've heard that baths can be okay, because they cool with time... but usually if you have to 'inch' in slowly then he bath is too hot for pregnancy. Good advice!

          I tried doing CST (Cold Shower Therapy) when I was pregnant. My concern with showers was That constant steam and etc can vaporize chemicals in your water if you have bad water (and we do.) Six in one hand, half a dozen in the other in this house.

            When my husband and I were on our baby moon (29 weeks), I went in the hottub for like, 10 minutes. I didn't have the jets turned on. I did quite a bit of research and some things will say avoid hot baths and stuff, but others say they are fine for short periods of time. My midwife even recommended it for Braxton-Hicks or contraction discomfort. There is a temperature law on the hottubs of 115' in South Carolina, so I decided to take a quick dip and relax before hitting up the pool. The sauna I DID completely avoid, though. It was a nice 10 minutes of luxury.
