It's fine. But if you could discourage DH from taking baths (showers are fine), that wouldn't hurt, although none of my fertility doctors were especially worried about even DH taking baths.
What I did, for my own "peace of mind" more than anything, was take baths at night, before "trying". It probably didn't/doesn't/won't make a difference, but sometimes it is kinda difficult to even "try" when you aren't in the mood, there was no way I was going to take a bath after. You may or may not want to shower the next morning, I figured by then whatever sperm were going to be strong enough to make it to the egg were well on their way, anyway.
