  • Calm down. I don't know WHY your doctor said something like that. Maybe he was joking. But no, a mosquito bite on your stomach is not a danger to your baby. Not unless you are allergic to mosquitoes. Think about this, his stinger would have to get through your skin, through you fatty layers, through your uterine wall, and to the sac of waters before getting the poison anywhere near your baby. So, unless he is the mothra of mosquitoes and his stingy thingy was a foot long, I'd say your safe.

  • if it was harmful he would have told you what to do in case it happens. Getting bitten on the stomach shouldn't make a difference bc the mosquito taps into your blood stream not into your uterus. Just call and tell his nurse and see what he wants you to do about it.
