No: It is unlikely to remain in your system very long after exposure. Some bug sprays are considered unsafe in pregnancy, but the risks are low. What is more, certain insect-born illnesses are potentially more harmful, so you'll have to weigh your risks and benefits based on your location. I usually recommend deet-free bug sprays. ...Read more

Amniocentesis: An amniocentesis has a small chance of causing a pregnancy loss. That loss is dependent upon the gestational age when the procedure is done. At 16-20 weeks that risk is about 1 in 1600 procedures. As the pregnancy progresses that risk goes way down. In the third trimester an amniocentesis won't cause the pregnancy to be lost, but the baby might need to be delivered. ...Read more

Unlikely: Small amounts of caffeine are probably safe in pregnancy. It's best to limit yourself to less than 200 mg a day, about the amount in two 8 ounce cups of coffee.

Caffeinated sodas have about 1/3 the caffeine as coffee and tea has about 1/2. ...Read more

While there isn't a lot of information that says caffeine exposure is risky to unborn children, most obstetricians recommend not taking anything in that you don't really need, and nobody really needs caffeine. Modest doses, 1-2 servings per day, are very unlikely to hurt either you or your baby, but higher doses may. Talk to your OB provider. ...Read more
Is it safe to drink tap water while pregnant? Will it harm the baby ? Will it effect fetal development in any way? Is bottle water better to drink?
Tap water is fine: In the United States -- every community, every state -- tap water is entirely safe, in both pregnant and non-pregnant persons. Many people prefer bottled water, but the only rational reason is taste: if you like it better and can afford it, use bottled water. But assuming no special contamination issue -- which the health department and media would publicize -- tap water is entirely safe. ...Read more
