I've heard NO absolutely not
I've hear as long as you wash your hands thoroughly afterwards
and I've also heard that if you've been exposed to cat litter before and its nothing new your perfectly safe
I'm confused, can I or can't I?
I have 3 kitties, I've been scooping boxes for years lol
this is my third pregnancy my other two children are 7 and 8, I suppose they could take over the chore if need be but I'm just curious what anyone else has been told about it or know about it...

I had barn cats and house cats my entire life so I was already exposed, but I still got someone else to clean the cat box while I was PG as much as I could. To my understanding, it is the cats that eat mice that are the carriers of the bacteria that harms fetuses. You are likely in no immediate danger, but you can never be too safe about it. Just be careful if you have to clean the box... and do try to get your other kids to take some responsibility for the cats. They are old enough to start doing it, and you have a great reason not to do it :) Good Luck!!
