In brief: Ask your OB
I tell my pts no the water can be too hot which is detrimental to your fetus, u need to keep your body temp under 101.

In brief: No
The higher temperatures in hot tubs have been shown to increase the risk for pregnancy malformations or even pregnancy loss in the first trimester. Warm baths - yes.
Hot tubs - no.
