I am 30 weeks pregnant, is modge podge safe to use for my crafts?

I am 30 weeks pregnant, is modge podge safe to use for my crafts?

Sounds safe...: Some websites say that modge podge is a pva glue (polyvinyl acetate) and say it is similar to elmer's white glue. If true, the glues are non-toxic when used properly. That means they don't have the toxic fumes that some strong glues have. So, one doesn't have to worry about inhaling bad chemicals. Still, it's a good idea to wear disposable gloves when working with glues. ...Read more

I'm 30 weeks pregnant I have been told that I have preterm laber when should I worry about something being wrong?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant I have been told that I have preterm laber when should I worry about something being wrong?

Use caution: I see you have 3 children already so I would expect you to deliver quickly after beginning labor there fore do not wait to present to the DR if you rupture membranes (water breaks) or contractions start. At 30 weeks the fetus in general will tolerate birth but every day or week you go without delivering the better for your baby. Bed rest etc may help slow the process, your OB should aware o ...Read more

I am 30 weeks pregnant & tested positive for gbs 2 weeks ago. -- if I test negative at my 36 week appointment, what does that mean?

No need 4 penicillin: If you were positive at 28 weeks and gbs negative at 36 weeks you would not need any antibiotic prophylaxis in labor. The one exception to this rule is if you had gbs in your urine previously; in this scenario, you need no further gbs screening, because you need intrapartum penicillin anyway. ...Read more

I am 30 weeks pregnant and need to have a cavity filled. Is nitrous okay to use?

Nitrous: In the old days they used nitrous in labor so it has a safety track record. However, why would you want to use this medication when a local anesthetic would do the trick. I bet if your dentist knew the pregnancy, they would not use it because here in georgia, the dentist make the pregnant patient get a consent from the ob. Hope this helps in some small way. ...Read more
