If, long before pregnancy, you regularly sweated, then you should not abandon these procedures in a new "interesting" situation. But still in the first weeks it is better to take a break in a good pair tradition.

Bath at a later date

Many believe, and among them there are also physicians,that a visit to a bath during pregnancy, provided that the precautions are observed, contributes to its successful completion: at a later date the woman feels better, her health improves, and many ailments and disorders disappear, and the danger of their occurrence.
