Bath -v- shower after ET

Gosh - questions questions questions!!!

Forgot to ask the clinic earlier today if I can have a bath today? We don't have a shower (yet) and I've been having baths without bubbles since wednesday's EC.

Don't want to drown my newly implanted embies!! IT'S A JOKE - I know they won't drown!! But don't know if it makes you more prone to infection etc.

What do you reckon chaps?

I was told (2nd time around) to avoid baths for the first few days. As KAra said, warm baths are ok after that, but I avoided them all together. I guess if you have no shower you don't have much choice unless you just stand in the bath and give yourself a good sluice down, or go au natural??

Hi

I was told by the clinic no baths after ET due to risk of infection but if you don't have a shower cannot see why you cannot have a without bubbles bath if you are careful.

A bath is so much more relaxing

Thansk girls - I do have a separate shower part to the bath but it's just for hair washing in the bath (not on the wall) and plus I really like baths cos I only wash my hair twice weekly anyway but thanks for the info. I think I'll err on the cautious side and just "sluice" meself down to use a Mrs Smiff expression!

Having hot baths. 9 days until I test....

whats the score with having baths? The nurse at the hospital didnt mention anything to me. But Ive heard that you shouldnt take a bath whilst going through ICSI.

I take a preg test in 9 days, my husband says i shouldnt take baths. what do you think?

ALSO. Today is xmas day. Do you think i should avoid having a glass of wine with my xmas dinner?

RE: Having hot baths. 9 days until I test....

:hi: Graciekat

I'd say :no: to baths....at least hot ones.....maybe luke-ish warm would be ok but generally speaking most people say no in the 2ww.

I had a bit of wine on my 2ww in the rugby world cup final and one other desperately down day....it is christmas Gracie and with the amount of food you're gonna be eating, would imagine it's the best day of the year to have one glass!!! Just to say though that most people do try and avoid any alcohol and if you're at all worried about it then I wouldn't.

Hope you're having a wonderful day Gracie, wine or no wine!!

Merry Christmas hon!

Hi, Gracie
The baths: No! One is advised to avoid HOT baths not only in the 2WW but also in pregnancy as it raises your core temperature which, in turn, could be problematic for the baby. By the same token you should also not have LONG hot showers. A short hot shower, a long luke-warm shower or a cool bath are all acceptable though. If you do decide to bath - no bubbles.
This whole pregnancy thing takes all the fun out of bathing, doesn't it?

As to wine, I am in the: Avoid it altogether! bracket. There is good medical evidence that says that there is no safe period in pregnancy to take alcohol and there is no safe amount either. In the 2WW you are basically pregnant until proven otherwise (PUPO) so live as if you are PG already. People are going to tell you 100's of stories about people who drank like fishes before they knew they were PG and their babies are fine but they seldom, if ever, tell you about the women who took just half a glass as "what harm can half a glass do" and had to suffer all the guilt when their babies were born with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome and all that is inherent in that...

hi Gracie

It's a tough ole 2 weeks. You're on a high coz you're technically pg, but you want to be a bit normal to keep your feet on the ground.

I avoided hot baths, which are my ultimate luxury, in the first 7 days and then had a couple of tepid baths (not the same AT ALL!!) in the last week. I had a work's Christmas do and had half a glass of red wine with my 4 course dinner. Enjoyed it that night.....Felt bad about it the next day.

Basically my nurse at the hosp said - don't do anything that you might look back on and regret at the end of the 2WW. (I even cut right down on exercise!!).

Main thing is be good to yourself, and use the FZ on the days you feel like you're going :loony: Kept me sane !!

:goodluck: :hugs:

Hi Gracie

I agree with the other ladies - no hot baths - I'm currently on the dreaded 2ww and the nurse at my clinic mentioned no hot baths to me.

As for the wine - just do what you feel most comfortable with - I had a little sip of my DH lager yesterday and I have felt bad ever since.

Have a lovely Christmas and good luck and babydust coming your way

love Cal xx

As I understand it, the only "dangerous" thing about a hot bath is if you raise your body temperature too high. You don't have to have a lukewarm one if you take it so literally that lukewarm is actually uncomfortably cold. Have a reasonable bath, but just don't sit in it till you sweat or until your legs (or however much of you is underwater) go bright red. A shallow bath is better because it won't heat your tummy up as quickly.

As with all the hundreds of things that are mentioned to PUPO ladies to avoid, don't do it if you think you might blame it if things don't work out. However, the vast majority of these things are very unlikely to be the cause of a bfn.

Rene - why no bubbles? I've never heard that one before.

Hi Gracie,

Well I'm in the same boat as you - I test on the 7th of January. And now I feel a bit bad because I got lots of lovely bath stuff for Christmas and I soaked myself in a lovely hot bath for an hour a couple of days ago. I had no idea baths were a bad thing. After ET my nurse :duh: told me there were no dos and don'ts other than the avoidance of alcohol. She told me I could have a bucks fizz with lots of orange juice but that's it.

I will be avoiding baths from now until test day - thanks for this thread as this is all news to me. :rolleyes:

What date do you test? Any symptoms?

Hi ya when i had my treatment the consultant told me not to have a bath for the first week or two because when they do the et they clean all the mucus away from the cervics so they get a clean route but then that take's away the barriers that stop infection getting in to the womb. X

So i would say have a few nice showers and get your dh to give you a nice long back rub XX

So glad I stumbled on this thread... just looking whilst running a bath! Chatterbox- I'm with you on the HOT baths being a luxuary! I like to get in them so hot that I come out all dizzy and lobster like after at least an hour.

Have let the bath water out... I'm sure a shower will be just as lovely. Need to get some radox gel!

ET procedure/is it ok to have a bath?

Hiya,

I've been reading that you shouldn't have hot baths after ET, i wondered if i would be ok for one this evening? Et is not until until tommorow afternoon.

Is the procedure painful, it's just my left ovary is still quite tender from EC.

Thanks (as always) for any advice you can offer xxx

Baths?

Hello,

I had my ET on 6th June. I haven't been told what to do and not what to do. I was just wondering a lot of people on here state not to have a bath, is there any reason for this and does this mean only showers for my two whole weeks or only so many days? Just wondered if anyone knows or has any advice. Thanks in advance.

Vivianne

I think a lot of do's and dont's with IVF are down to preference. I can only say what I would do or have done.

I would have a bath after a few days but not too hot, don't think a warm bath would hurt in fact it would probably relax me.

Hope this helps and sending you babydust xx

Hi Vivianne, I was told no baths at all for at least 4-5 days after ET, but as Kim has said so many clinics differ in do's and dont's but i dont have a bath so it wasnt tempting, but i can say if i had a bath, i certainly think i would have had a long soak to calm the aching ovaries.

Keep us updated on progress

wishing you lots of luck

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and haven't had a bath since before egg transfer. I went from having a bath nightly, to now having a shower that has very little water pressure (yuck!). I think I might now go back to baths but worry that my definition of lukewarm is not the right definition. I love my HOT HOT baths but don't want to overheat myself and risk this crucial development stage.

ARGH!! Perhaps I should wait until I get to the second trimester...

Hi,

The reason they say no baths is because people tend to like hot ones, anything that raises the mothers body temperature also raises the temperature of the baby or embryo if your embryo is in the very early stages it could (I say could there is no guarantee it will) cause problems by overheating the embryo. A warm bath will do no harm but the water shouldn't be hot enough to turn your skin pink and you shouldn't feel too hot, I was so paranoid I avoided baths completely until I was 6 months gone and didn't fit in the shower any more.
