recently read something online but I'm not sure of its credibility... apparently you have to avoid baths when TTC? Anyone else heard of this. I know the advice is warm baths only once PG but I've never heard of it when TTC!

I'm currently 2dpo and I love my baths. it's my relaxation time. would you give them up if you we're me?

It has no credibility...

Didn't even give up my baths when I was pregnant. No one even mentioned it. Didn't do DS any harm.
The info you have come across has probably been skewed somewhere as it is men who should avoid hot baths, showers, saunas etc as it can harm sperm.

I have read that it's not great to have a hot bath either just before or after dtd. Possibly something to do with cm.

Actually anything that raises your core temperature is bad for your eggs and baby when you're pregnant. So hot baths, sauna, steam and jacuzzi are no no. Have a read up on core temp and TTC. X

My baths are not sauna temp so I'm assuming I'll be OK. We will see I guess
