  • I wouldn't see why. But there is a lot of things during and prior to a pregnancy people say you can't do and stuff that i think is crazy. But I will say we use to have roommates about 3 years ago who had a cat and two dogs and we were ttc and we couldn't but as soon as we moved out I got pregnant. They had other roommates after us 2 different times. The same happened to both of them. That couple has been ttc for years and hasn't been able to. IMO it has to with the kitty litter box (that is hardly changed) and the dogs they have that they let pee and poop everywhere.
