Miscarriage and bath

This may be a stupid question but yesterday we found out our baby had no heart beat at 9 weeks. I am due to have a D&C on Thursday. Can I have a bath today? I'd really love to relax and unwind in a nice bath but don't want to risk infection or anything. I am not bleeding.

I'm So sorry you are going through this.
Have a bath and try to relax. There's no reason you can't have a bath.
I hope you're okay.
