@MrsPom:  Its not recommended to be in a hot tub during the TWW, but I don’t think any major harm has been done. I think it just puts you at risk for infection since hot tubs have a lot of bacteria, but I’m not 100% sure the reasoning behind why they say not to go in a hot tub during the TWW. I take baths 3 times per week during the TWW, I just make sure my body doesn’t get overheated. (I think the recommendation is less than 100 degree water temp). To me, the relaxing benefits of a bath outweigh any risks as long as I’m drinking cool water and the water is only luke warm…

ETA:  I dont just takes baths during the TWW, I do it throughout the whole cycle, but I am more adament on doing so in the TWW as a destressor. I just realized that made it sounds like I’m the TWW-bath-nazi haha

You definitely should avoid hot tubs during the TWW.  Prolonged high temps are bad for sperm and for embryos. Don’t sweat this time.  There’s enough things to worry about in this process!  But avoid it in the future.  (And your dude should avoid it completely – it takes 3 months for sperm to fully mature and heat is not their friend!)

Good luck!

@MrsPom:  Don’t beat yourself up about it! It’s worse for you to be mad/stressed about it than anything…. Stress does awful things to the body especially one trying to make a baby haha =)
