hot showers

i thoroughly enjoy hot showers, especially in the winter time.  since i've been pregnant, i get nervous everytime i shower.  i try to keep them under 10 minutes and have been careful about where the water hits....for example, i try to let it fall on my shoulders and head rather than low back and tummy.  does that make a difference or is the steam a bigger issue?  this is my first pregnancy and i have been over analyzing everything!  any support appreciated!!!

I think it's how high your internal body temp gets, I love hot showers too, its really cold here on the upper east coast. I try to keep them just warm enough. I think you can tell when it's too hot.

Oh I've been takin hot showers and now will ususally stay in there for like 20-25 minutes.  I can tell my body's had enough hot water, I start to feel, well hot.  At first the hot water feels so relaxing and I don't want to get out but after like 20 minutes that's when I'm like okay now I just feel hot.  But I think hot showers are perfectly fine, at least with my experience.

That's what I like about this website, there's always somebody that's going through the same thing...  Sometimes when I sneeze I feel like it harms the baby when it's simply harmless at all you know?  Or if you strain to much while using the bathroom that the baby can come out.  Little things like that I have so many questions about it too. But the good thing is there's always somebody on this forum that has been through it , you know?  Well if you have any questions dont hesitate to ask. I'm no expert but I can tell you some things from my experiences. Good luck on your pregnancy.  How far along are you by the way?
