Do Not: Take Long, Hot Soaks
Soaking in a relaxing hot tub or sauna may seem like a great method for relieving the discomfort that comes with pregnancy, but medical experts warn that this can be dangerous.
The hot water in hot tubs can raise body temperature and lead to hyperthermia, according to the APA. This can cause congenital defects in your baby and other problems. It can even be deadly.
