Is it safe to have fertilizer in our garden while I am pregnant?

Yes: Studies/research in human pregnancy are limited with anything that may cause harm to baby. So there is not any great evidence either way on these things.

Is it safe to have an exterminator come to the house while I am pregnant?

No: I would avoid as many exposures as possible, especially big ones like this. Of course, having an infestation is not a wonderful thing either.

Then load up on foods that enhance the liver (body's major detoxifier): broccoli, garlic, cauliflower, coconut oil. ...Read more
