Hot bath during 2ww

I am 8dpo and on month one of TTC. Its been a bit of a knackering day at work and I just had a (quite hot) and long soak in the bath without thinking anything of it...until I got out.

I haven't had any symptoms to suggest that I have conceived this month (yet) but it only occored to me as I got out of the bath that I probably should be showering instead. So I googled it and have read lots of people saying that baths go against advice in the 2ww! Kind of annoyed with myself!

Feels a bit irrational considering I don't even think we have conceived this month but I'm worrying regardless!

I would say not to worry. This is unlikely to have made any difference.

Hot tubs are a no because they stay at a constant high temp so can raise your own core temperature but even then from what I have read it's not a definite in terms of affecting the development of a pregnancy and this early it's very unlikely.

Baths cool down over time so are less of a risk I believe.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reassuring reply Snowflake. I have since read posts online from people saying they didn't know and took hot baths all through pregnancy! I won't be taking any chances from now on but glad to hear lots of other people have been ok.
