    Default 100% NO NO while pregnant

    What would you class as 100% no whilst pregnant for example

    *(personally I would class drugs/alcohol a big no no)

    * Going on rides at themeparks

    * I am so scared to eat certain foods - so I don't and haven't at all through my pregnancy but others say they eat whatever they like

    I'll think of more soon - mind blank at the moment

    What else would you class as a big no no

    Smoking

    Drinking any more than a mouthful at a time

    Illegal drugs

    Going on theme park rides

    Doing general "dangerous" things

    Flying to a country when it's possible I could give birth to a live baby... so after about 24 weeks. I just couldn't personally risk being in some country where they have dodgy healthcare or whatever.

    Everything else is pretty much free game for me.

    smoking, drugs, significant quantities of alcohol

    That's all I'd say as an absolute...everything else I think is a calculated risk, and up to the individual.

    The eating was a big one for me.
    I would never take any illegal drugs, thats a huge No no. Alcohol is bad!
    Smoking cigarettes IMO - huge no no.

    Smoking, Alcohol, Drugs and too much Caffeine for sure.

    Taking unreasonable risks (which I believe vary from person to person). For example for me it would be climbing stairs without holding the rail since I'm clumsy , other people would be just fine doing that. Contact sports and other intense physical activities are included in that as well since its different for everyone .

    While sex is fine in general (medical conditions allowing), if I were single I wouldn't have sex with any new partners unless they got a full std screening (even then I would use protection and only if I was serious about the new relationship, no one night stands). I was watching a show the other day, and the issue came up and I know for me personally I'd rather be cautious to the extreme then risk getting and transmitting an std to my Baby. At the same time I'm a romantic and know I'd still be willing to date someone if I were single and pregnant, and was sure it was going to go somewhere .

    I also don't take many chances with Listeria (I did have a few mishaps earlier on, so I know mistakes happen when its all fresh and new ). Now I have the hang of it its a lot easier to incorporate into my lifestyle, and while I miss a lot of my old favourites I don't think it's worth my Babies life.

    I'd also strike out any medications that are not checked by my doctor first, including over the counter stuff. Exceptions to that rule being any long term prescriptions, I'd continue those until I could talk to my doctor about them (which I'd be doing the moment I found out I was pregnant).

    Really a lot of it is just common sense stuff , and its all only for a relatively short time (I know for a fact that I'm going to gorge myself silly on forbidden food once I'm out of the hospital ).
