Sure, you know you shouldn’t eat raw fish, drink alcohol or indulge in soft cheeses, but what else makes the list? These things may not be included in your pregnancy manual, but they really should be!
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life but it is also filled with a lot of do’s and don’ts. In fact, it can be hard to keep track of what to eat, what to drink, what to avoid, how to sleep and how to exercise. We’re not here to tell you to eliminate soft serve ice cream from your diet or to sleep on your side. Rather, we thought we’d give you a more practical guide to what to avoid when pregnant.
So here are 9 things never to do while pregnant:
1. Watch any baby commercial without a box of tissues beside you
Actually, this also holds true for any commercial featuring a pregnant woman, a baby or a child. Or a dog. Or anything cute or furry. Or any commercial that uses sad music. Because your emotions will run away with you, especially during those first few months, and you will end up a blubbery mess.
And don’t even try watching any sad movies. Marley and Me is off the table for the next nine months
