    Thought soil was only dangerous if cats or dogs had wee or pood on it due to risk of toxiplasmosis but I think that it's prob wise not to garden too close to end anyway bless u big hugs hope this eases

    Oh dani I pulled up some weeds last week and was in absolute agony. Won't do that again! Nothing worse than not being able to get comfy in bed. Have you tried a nice bath to soothe your muscles?

    I don't think baths at this stage are dangerous, as long as they're not boiling hot. Its good you're keeping active tho hun apparent that's really good for you and bubs. You having a nice birthday? x

    As long as the bath isn't hot enough to make you sweat it's fine. The problem generally is (and this applies at any stage of pregnancy) that while we sweat to cool down, if your core temp is raised then LO has no way to cool themselves.


    I've had a few hot baths to help deal with BH. X


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(
