Bathing

I'm at 9dpt3dt and I wondered idiots ok to have a bath instead or shower now. I was under the impression I had to avoid for first 48 hours but just want to check???!

Ask your RE's office.  I think I was told not to take a bath until I got either a positive or a negative, and if it was positive, they didn't recommend taking a bath for the whole rest of the pregnancy (because your body heat goes up).  But my RE's office is pretty conservative.
