I think i just want to tell her she can do some of the things but i know she is a bit of a know it all and will tell me she cant and i shouldnt have done it when i was pregnant anyway enough rambling...

  • No, in fact this is the first I'm hearing of some of that... Have some common sense & you'll be fine. Women have been having healthy babies for millions of years without worrying about all that.

    I even ate sushi about every other week.

    I honestly don't think I followed a single "rule" except no drinking alcohol

  • I did all of those except for getting my hair and nails done. The others, I did in moderation or rarely. I finally gave in and ate Subway once or twice. I craved it horrible. I would have a soda every once in a while, but for the most part, stuck to water and away from caffeine. I did eat hot dogs on occasion, and still ate salt. My pregnancy went fine, and my son was completely healthy. :)

  • i've never heard of not eatind subway, hotdogs, or fish...i've heard not to eat tuna fish or shellfish but i thought everything else was fine.
    the things i avoided was cigerettes, caffine, salt, and anything else my doctor told me..but i never heard those other things.

  • I took a lot of that seriously. I would still do it now. Right or wrong, I feel like not taking any chances with it what so ever. I would say nothing to her, she is doing what she feels is best for her baby.
