How many baths do you take a day now? I am so uncomfortable with his head in my rear and the bronchitis that I am taking 4 or 5 baths a day. I just am not comfortable anywhere else. At least I'm clean, right?

You're making me wish I would stop working and stay at home. I just get my quickie shower in the morning before work and that's it.

I only work weekends, so on those days I take 2 - one in the am and one in the pm.

I'm having a bath and a shower most days, DS and I are also going swimming a lot which is bliss <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I'm ordering my fishy pool in a few days and I might just fill that up a few days and float <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

Dang! Honestly it's such a PITA for me to get in and out of the tub, I stick to one shower or bath a day. Now if I had a deep tub or Jacuzzi where it actually took some pressure off my tum, I'd live in the damn thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Usually about 2 baths a day because my pelvis is sore. Yesterday it was 3 because I was trying to get the cramps to go away. I think it was about the same with my dd, I remember taking LOTS of baths in the last few weeks.

Ya know, I'm not a big bath person so I rarely take one. I do have my birthtub setup and have been in it twice in the last 4 days I think. It's a huge relief to be bouyant like that and my contrax don't feel painful in there, but I just don't like being in warm water that long. I love it for labor/birth though!

Bath? What's that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Our tub is so uncomfortable and shallow...it doesn't even cover my c-section scar...and it's so narrow I feel squished in there. I haven't even tried for the last month. Although I told DH I miss our tub at our apartment before we bought this place. It was awesome! Not a jacuzzi or anything, just big and deep and wide. I'm 5' 7" and could relax against the back and have my legs extended all the way in that thing. Loved it!<br><br>
I just get my one hot shower a day. A couple of weeks ago I went to visit my dad and got a hotel room and got in the pool. It was nice while I was in it, but I felt twice as heavy getting out as I did getting in. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> That part sucked. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I am REALLY looking forward to getting in the birth pool when that times comes though. I can't wait. DH offered to fill it for me to relax in a couple weeks ago...but it takes so much water I passed on it. It's very tempting though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Wow! I get my one shower a day, very occasionally a bath. If I took more than that, I'd look even more like lizard-girl than I already do - my skin is soooo dry!

ITA - that's part of the reason I don't love getting in the tub. Cuz getting out feels just awful. It seems like my belly is a million times heavier than before I got it. It's hard!

I take a cool shower in the morning and cool bath at night. I feel so sweaty and swollen that its the only way I feel clean <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

We have a garden tub, so it's deep enough for me to kind of kneel and lean on the back and my tummy and back are submerged. Of course, half the time at least one of the kids are in there too.

Ooooh, water. I love water. I take usually two showers.... but have been known to take more. Lately, drying off, and putting lotion on is toooo hard, so I've been sticking to two. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
When we move, I'll be able to go SWIMMING.... sooo looking forward to that sensation with my next baby! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Usually a shower in the morning and a bath at night. when I get tired at night the restless legs syndrome thing kicks in and the only way I can get it to go away is by taking a bath. It makes my hips feel good too, but getting out sucks big time.

I love baths, but it's so hard to take them unless Livi is napping or in bed for the night. I also have to lay on my side (difficult when you are six foot tall in a normal-sized tub) to get any relief for my tummy, but it does feel good for awhile!<br><br>
Get this... I was telling my IRL friend about how I love taking baths, and she said, "You can take baths when you're pregnant??? My doctor told me I couldn't!" She has had three children, and never taken a bath with any of them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Poor girl!
