Microwave ovens: Simply heat an item by agitating its molecules. The "radiation" is non-ionizing, meaning it does not alter the dna or molecular structure of the food the way x-rays and gamma rays can. So the only damage to blueberries (or any other food) would be from over heating. "zapping" can occur from sparks when a metalic container is used or from steam "exploding." defrosting blueberries is safe.

Possible, but: Modern home pregnancy tests are reasonably accurate at 8-10 days. I recommend waiting two weeks from the time of insemination to have the best answer.

Before: Two days is too early to conceive and have a positive pregnancy test. It takes about 10 days after conception for a upt to be positive? U likely ovulated on the 9th or 10th and sperm lives up to 7 days. Gd luck with things.

Is it safe to go tobogganing while pregnant.. I imagine not. But what if you did?

Nope!: Extreme sports or any activity that can predictably increase your risk of traumatic injury are contraindicated throughout pregnancy. Tobogganing is included in the forbidden activity list. Safe exercise during pregnancy includes walking, stationary bike, swimming and yoga in specialized classes.
