The major types of things to avoid while pregnant include alcohol, smoking, drugs and medications, most vaccines, chemicals such as pesticides, certain foods that might contain mercury, bacteria or harmful substances, and activities that might cause falls, injuries, overexertion or extreme changes in temperature, such as hot tub use. Pregnant women should also avoid pets that can carry disease, such as rodents, hamsters and guinea pigs, as well as cat litter. Women should also try to limit stress, and avoid all kinds of abuse or unsafe sexual activity, especially while pregnant. Pregnant women should also avoid lying on their backs for more than a few minutes after the fourth month, since this can compress major blood vessels.
