Best Answer

As far as I am aware of here are some other things: illegal drugs, narcotics, x-rays, some prescription medications (birth control pills, etc.), some over the counter medications (ibuprofen), caffine, sugar, cigarettes, smuff, cat feces, and harsh fumes. You might want to ask your doctor for a list of things.

Drugs, ibuprofin, nuprin, asprin, hot baths, artificial sweetners, and a lot of other things affect the fetus. The best thing to do is to contact your physician and ask the main things to stay away from. Also, make sure if you eat fish that it is fresh. !
