I know its a waste of water etc, but I am 35 weeks pregnant and the only place I feel comfortable is the bath! Does that let me off the environmental concerns etc?

If you can afford the heating the water go for it!!! Way its going we wont be able to afford hot water before long!!!

I stayed in the bath nearly all day when I was pregnant - DH told me I looked like a beached whale - go for it!

When I was 36 weeks pregnant we moved house and my mum cleaned the new bathroom with blue flash. I, For some strange reason got addicted to the smell of the bathroom. I took at least 2 baths a day until DS was born and he was 13 days overdue.

Have as many baths as you feel like having! The vast amounts of water and energy that you're using now will be offset by the fact that you'll be lucky to get much time in the shower, never mind have a bath, once the baby arrives! Or is that just me... grin

good thinking ignoring! that eases any guilt smile

Oh feck, That wasn't meant to scare you! DS was a lazy wee shite!

Hot baths are supposed to bring on labor. Bloody liars IMO but your cervix may be different!

smile not scared howling - just can't comtemplate being late! Am sure your DS was worth the wait smile

Mine will be late if he is anything like his daddy so i better get used to the idea!
