%REPLIES%. Answer . Yes, it is very safe. I vacummed up to the day I went into the hospital wih all 3 of my pregnancys.. Answer . It is safe as long as your doctor hasn't told you not to do it or if it causes pain to you. If it does, then you should talk to your doctor because it shouldn't …be causing pain. It is a very light activity that you should be able to do for all nine months.. Answer . \nMany women clean and vacuum like mad in the last few days before they go into labour. almost as if the body knows it will be too busy for the next few weeks. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \nNo not usually because of the fumes. If you must try a ventilation mask with a filter and open all the windows and doors. Try to have someone else do it and you leave for the day. You can even discuss with your doctor.\n. \n Answer \n. \nThe myth that painting is u…nsafe actually started years ago when there was still lead in the paint used. However, today they have changed the product, and you should no longer be able to buy paint that contains lead. It is not a problem. The only risk you will find that comes with painting is lightheadedness which can occur from reaching above your head. I helped paint my baby room, and I just made sure it was well ventilated and I sat down and took a break every so often. But don't paint alone!!! If, for some reason,you do get a dizzy spell, you will absolutely want someone near by to make sure you don't fall and hurt yourself.\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nIt is not only lead based paints that are unsafe. Paints with high VOCs (such as oil-based enamels and epoxy) are not safe for anyone to breathe over an extended period. If you are pregnant and want to do some painting, be sure to ask for a paint with low VOC, or at least be sure to use a water based (latex) paint and have proper ventilation. Even for several days after paint has been applied it can "offgas" fumes into the air. Continue to supply fresh air to an area that is freshly painted for as long as is practical after painting.\n. \n Answer \nWhile solvent-based paints pose more of a threat, water-based paints contain anti-microbials to inhibit microbiological growth while packaged. There are known health effects resulting from occupational exposure to anti-microbials. This would be an extremely low-level exposure, but low-level exposure science is just emerging and much is still unknown. Minimizing exposure to potentially hazardous substances while pregnant (and any other time) is prudent. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nYes, there is no problem with having a pedicure.\n. \nTowards the end of pregnancy many women have one even if they have never had one before because it is so difficult to reach to DIY. Answer . Hello there.\n. \nYes it is safe to get a pedicure during pregnancy. But if you're w…orried beforehand, ask the beatician to be certain. ( Full Answer )

Answer . Yes. The fetus is safe in the uterus. The only precaution is not make a big effort.
Answer . No - and the employees there should tell you that as well as there should be signs posted in plain sight stating that.
To a certain point. I don't think that there is any real danger to the fetus from actually being upside down. Once you get into the 2nd and 3rd trimester you will be off center from the extra weight, which could make you fall. Also, as the pregnancy progresses headstands may reduce blood flow to the… baby. I would say it's ok until you start to show, after that I would check with a doctor. ( Full Answer )
I have 4 children. Through all of my pregnancies, I have done anything I felt well enough to do. I have cleaned the entire house from top to bottom. Cleaned out all of our drawers and cabinets and closets. I have trimmed trees, gardened, worked in the fields, swam, sewn, babysat, about everything.

Please ask your Doctor/Gyno/Obs, but to answer your question, Whilst pregnant with my son, he was squashing my kidney causing excruciating pain. I was prescribed panadeine forte 30mg x2 as needed. I was 35 weeks pregnant. I took these for 3 days until he moved off my kidney. During the 3rd trimester… of pregnancy your baby is completely formed and 'building the last blocks' ie: lung development before birth. It is not recommended during the first trimester or the last 2 weeks prior to estimated delivery date as premature labour and dilation may be experienced. Depending on the stage of your pregnancy, you should be able to determine from this answer whether you need to take it while pregnant or better still if you could try to only use paracetamol/tylenol. P.S. my son was born on his due date, healty and happy, still is :) ( Full Answer )

Yes, however if you are at risk of pre-term labor or miscarriage, the doctor will advise against it.
i dont see the effect. As long as u dont eat it which im sure you wont.
Yes. It is safe to take amino acid supplements during pregnancy. But they are not indicated and are expensive.
Lortabs are considered safe during pregnancy. Anyone who tells youotherwise either has no clue or is not a doctor. I have beenprescribed them during pregnancy and of course was very concernedabout taking them...I am also high risk given that I am pregnantwith multiples (twins). My doctor states that… they are safe to takeas long as you don't take them for too long, and you get off ofthem several weeks before delivering so that your child doesn'tdisplay withdraw symptoms when it's born. Of course it's the mostmild dose, and you should only take it when absolutely necessary. Ialways recommend talking to your doctor, there is a lot of greatinformation on the internet, but a lot of it is just full of peoplethat think they know what they are talking about because they havedone minimal research or heard a story. If you are in severe paincall your doctor and ask for advice, if you don't have one call thenurse's hotline. ( Full Answer )
No. Suboxone may cause birth defects. If a woman taking Suboxone becomes pregnant, tell your doctor right away. It is important to discuss the benefits and risks of the medication to decide when, how, and if you should stop taking Suboxone. You should discuss this with both the doctor prescribing Su…boxone and with your obstetrician/gynecologist. From the research I have done on this subject, a flat out "NO" is not a correct answer. Especially considering that there are not conclusive studies supporting it.. In my humble opinion, I would advise a woman that becomes pregnant to discuss this with her OB/GYN BEFORE DISCONTINUING Suboxone. Primarily due to "conclusive studies" that indicate withdrawals from Opiates or Opiates w/ partial antagonist -DO INCREASE THE RISK OF MISCARRIAGE. In any case this is an incredibly personal decision and not one that should be taken lightly nor w/o the advice of your OB. In addition, studies suggest that it is the Naloxen (sp?) that can POSSIBLY cause risk to your baby- not the bupenephrine; therefore, expectant mothers might consider asking their physician about Subutex. There is no question that the "ideal" situation is that pregnant women be able to avoid medications in general, however this is an unrealistic expectation. ESPECIALLY for women that suffer from the disease of addiction that are actively taking steps towards their recovery. You should be proud of yourself and give pause to the information acquired solely via the Internet and discuss all options before making any decisions. ( Full Answer )
\nThere is much debate about this topic. Studies show that consuming alcohol while pregnant can lead to birthing complications or fetal complications. Alcohol is a depressant, it can effect hormonal regulation and the developing brain of the fetus, and most often results in premature births. Ther…e are some people who would argue that drinking it in moderation cant do any harm. BUT, there is always a risk. My personal recommendation is to not consume any alcoholic beverage while pregnant as it can cause serious complications later on. ( Full Answer )
Check with your doctor, but as long as you have not passed your plug, you should be good to go.

If you are already familiar with rollerblading (i.e. you do it a lot), then in my opinion its ok as long as you take necessary precautions- dont go too fast, never rollerblade at night, never on uneven terrain, etc etc. And keep in mind that as your body changes and your belly gets bigger your balan…ce will change, so I recommend it only for the first five months or so, or until you start to show. If you do choose to rollerblade, dont overexert yourself or take any unnecessary risks. ( Full Answer )
Yes and No. It depends on what you'll be doing on your journey and when you'll be doing it. Most doctors obviously don't want you to go rock climbing or anything else obviously too strenous for pregnancy. They also would not want you to travel too far away if you are very close to your due date.
The use of benzodiazepines during pregnancy or lactation should be weighed against the potential risks. Alprazolam should not be used during pregnancy and lactation as it is believed to be associated with congenital abnormalities. In general benzodiazepines should not be used during pregnancy.
Nothing says that it is not safe, but it is not recommended. But I don't see what could go wrong with that.
Marijuana is completely safe for a pregnant woman. As i have read there are no non side effects of marijuana. Your baby will be safe if you smoke marijuana while pregnant because it actually intensifies your brain so more than likely it will intensify your babys intelligence. So hey your baby might …come out a genius. ( Full Answer )
No, you cannot hurt your child by swimming. You may not want to enter the Olympics and train super hard, but a leisurely swim is just fine. In fact, your sore back and body will appreciate the relaxation of WATER!
Depends on your insurance company, check with them Its not against the law as far as I know but your insurance could be void after a certain period of pregnancy.
Please resubmit your question and tell us what "it" is. We can't just guess what you are talking about.
No. No athletic or extreme things should be done while pregnant. It could seriously harm, or even kill the child.
well if you can swim at home you can swim in Hawaii just use a tampon
If you are around 8-9 months pregnant, your water may break and you wouldn't realize it, so swimming whilst pregnant isn't the best idea.
It is safe as long as correct hygiene practices are followed. . If a cat, see if someone can change the box for you. If you have to change the box, wear some disposable gloves and a dust mask and make sure to wash your hands well after cleaning. . If an exotic animal like a turtle or lizard, it i…s very important to handle with care. Salmonella is in their fecal matter and can cause harm to a developing fetus. Wash your hands after handling (or don't handle at all) and do not allow the animal to roam the house. Clean the cage outside to prevent any feces from slipping out and being missed while cleaning.

It is generally safe to use a vibrator during pregnancy. Stimulation leading to orgasm, however, can cause contractions. If you and your healthcare provider have determined that sex is safe for you then using a vibrator should be okay. Make sure it's clean and that you don't penetrate too deeply.
Yes it is perfectly safe to use a condom while pregnant. as a mater of fact it is safer as it reduces the rick of picking up an STD.
lol yes I'm sure no harm will come to your husband doing that! Seriously though, it's just fine. Sex and intercourse is encouraged during pregnancy.
As with all sex, the chances of falling pregnant are lowered when having safe sex. Having your period means the time of menstruation also lowers the chance of falling pregnant. However, there is no guarantee that you will not get pregnant.
its fine as long as you don't wear body armour, it will restrict the babies movement and cause autism. preferably go topless with a target on your belly.
As a matter of fact you can. You will want to wear a tampon NOT a pad they will fall apart or come off. If you wear a tampon you will have to check frequently for bleeding because the leek guard protection will not work because the string is wet.
Kneeboarding is a high impact extreme sport and crashes are regular and hard. Please do not kneeboard while pregnant. It is akin to waterskiing in terms of danger.
No. This can and probably will result in a birth defect, such as S.B.S. (Shaken Baby Syndrome) if you jog on a regular basis.
Yes. There is no reason not to have braces removed during pregnancy, if you are done with treatment.
Absolutely not! Medical or other, drugs and smoking are harmful to one's body and can lead to serious birth defects or miscarriage.
You really have to check with your doctor before taking any over the counter productions, antibiotics, herbal products or any products. If you are intimidated about visiting the doctor or if it is too inconvenient, simply walk over to the Pharmacy and ask the pharmacist for help.This is because depe…nding on the trimester of your pregnancy and your personal health history (like sulfa allergies etc.), certain antibiotics are NOT okay while pregnant. ( Full Answer )
yes you can especially if you are on the pill because some antibiotics can reverse the effect of the pill and doesn't protect you from pregnancy whilst having sex.
Yes swimming is excellent when pregnant and a exercise you can do all through the pregnancy. It wont harm you or the baby in any way.
