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

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?

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

I am 30 weeks pregnant and I used a jacuzzi/hot tub without knowing I wasn't supposed to. Should I be worried?

I am 30 weeks pregnant and I used a jacuzzi/hot tub without knowing I wasn't supposed to. Should I be worried?

Probably not: The embryonic/ fetal risks of hyperthermia from using a jacuzzi/hot tub in pregnancy are greatest during the first trimester of your pregnancy and depend on several factors like the water temperature, duration of immersion in the tub and others. At 30 wks, if you are healthy, have had a normal pregnancy ... the risks to you and to your unborn baby are relatively small and probably negligible. ...Read more
