There are a lot of things that are speculated for pregnant women to avoid. Some things are completely reasonable while other things no once can provide a good explanation for avoiding. But when it comes down to it, you can never be too careful when it comes to the things you expose your unborn baby to. You certainly want to avoid cat litter. A dirty litter box contains a parasite that although is not harmful to you, does pose a threat to your baby who is developing. Some birds and raw foods (particularly uncooked meat) also can contain this parasite.

You should also avoid smoking while pregnant. Smoking while pregnant can cause your baby to be born pre-maturely or have a low birth weight. It can also increase your baby's risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

You should also avoid alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol consumption while pregnant can result in FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome). It can result is severe retardation of your child and abnormalities. It can cause organ dysfunction, low birth weight, small head circumference, pre-mature labor, slow development mentally and physically and other things of the like.

You should avoid illegal drugs while pregnant. It can result in damage to the central nervous system, physical malformations, cleft palate, heart murmurs, eye defects,organ dysfunctions and more.

You should avoid caffeine. It can increase your child's risk of diabetes. Because caffeine causes your blood vessels to constrict and can reduce the blood flow to the placenta, as well as miscarriage.
There are lots of food that pregnant women should avoid. You should avoid hot dogs. a pregnant woman can eat seafood but she must be very careful about what seafood she can eat because a lot of seafood contains mercury, which can be very harmful to the fetus. Bottom-feeder fish are the worst. A pregnant woman should definitely avoid: swordfish, shark, blow fish, king mackerel, and tile fish just to name a few. The following fish should not be eaten because they can contain industrial pollutant in their fatty tissues:blue fish, stripped bass, salmon, pike, trout and walleye.Of course, junk food should be avoided. As your stomach is growing during your pregnancy, it does not need to be filled with foods that do not provide nutrients to you and your baby. Raw meat, including fish such as sushi should be avoided because of the possibility of bacteria and salmonella. Raw eggs and foods containing raw eggs (such as mayonnaise, Caesar dressing, homemade ice cream,etc) should be avoided because of the possibility of salmonella. You should also avoid soft cheese such as feta, brie, mozzarella, etc. because of the bacteria they may carry.
During pregnancy you should avoid elevating your body temperature. This would include extremely hot baths and hot tubs. You can get in the bath tub or a hot tub while you are pregnant BUT you must be sure not to let the water get above 100 degrees. I would recommend no higher than around 98 degrees just to ensure your fetus' safety. During the fetus's early development, the hot water can cause neural tube defects. So it is important to check the temperature of your water. You can go to the kitchen gadget section of Walmart and purchase a thermometer real cheap to test the temperature of your bath tub water. You should avoid using electric blankets while pregnant because of the electro-magnetic field it gives off.

Stress can have negative effects on your unborn child as well. It poses them to a greater risk of developing ADD or ADHD as well as high blood pressure later in life. Some studies have shown that severe stress can pose a threat of miscarriage during the latter part of your pregnancy. Stress might also cause premature delivery or low birth weight.

Pregnant women should also not clean a cat litter box while they are pregnant. A dirty litter box can contain harmful toxins to you and your unborn baby.

You can really eat raw eggs "boiled eggs" at least 2 or 3 eggs daily in your 1st trimester of pregnancy. Salmonella can't contaminate boiled eggs. You just clean the raw eggs with water and soap before boiling. You should not take caffeine and avoid eating papaya while you are still in 1st trimester of pregnancy.
