During pregnancy, you really are limited to what you can and can't do. Here are a things not to do:

  • Drugs.
  • Smoke.
  • Drink alcohol.
  • Do not stress yourself out.
  • Do not sit in the hot tub for extended periods.
  • Don't forget oral hygiene, when you are pregnant your hormones act on your gums causing gingivitis.
  • Clean a cat litter box or urine, feces, or vomit from any animal, due to parasites.
  • Any sports activities where you could fall and hurt you or the baby.

In addition:

Don't forget about your oral health. Mounting evidence suggests that periodontal disease, a bacterial infection that affects the gums and bones supporting the teeth, can lead to premature labor and low-birth weight babies.

See your dentist for a checkup and a cleaning now if you haven't done so in the last six months.
