    All of the usual things (alcohol, drugs, etc) plus horror movies. I believe that what I see, the baby sees/experiences. Not to mention the effect of the stress hormone (cortisol) on a bub. Just not worth it IMO

    I didn't even think about watching horror movies = Stress! Not that I watch them daily.

    For me: smoking, drugs and more than half a glass of wine every month our so

    Also no twirling in the supermarket.

    I used to read scary books all the time, but found I couldn't read them in my first pregnancy and haven't been able to since. I went right off them unwittingly.

    When pregnant I carry on as normal. I don't do anything extreme enough to stop.

    Smoking, alcohol, drugs.

    Chemicals particularly sodium lauryl sulphate.

    Unnecessary travel in late pregnancy.

    Smoking, illegal drugs, alcohol - more than a bottle of wine a day.

    Extreme sports, carrying heavy loads late preg, old/stale food, situations of high stress. I too believe that an anxious stressed mum bakes a baby that is easily anxious/stressed.

    Stress is not something I have the luxury to worry about, it comes weather you want it to or not
    this last 9 mths have been the most stressful in my life.

    I don't drink, smoke or do drugs normally so that no biggy

    I do watch what eat and I don't any activity that I deem dangerous eg rides, sky diving, horse riding etc....

    I am very careful and try hard to avoid medications and strong cleaning chemicals.

    I am being induced tomorrow night.
    DD will be here for the weekend of mothers day. She really starting to settle in down there so that is a real relief. I miss her so much but I am so happy that she is getting to study the subject she loves.
