  • If it's hot enough to be burning you, it's too hot for your sake. When I was pregnant I could tell the bath water (for example) was probably too hot because it would make my face flush and feel warm. I usually used that as a measure on my body temperature being too hot for the baby. I'd say probably ok, but you need to go with what you're comfortable with. If you think it's too hot, put the laptop on a book or a pillow or something to give some extra buffer between you and the laptop.

  • It shouldnt harm (burn) the baby but DONT put your laptop ON your legs!!! There are magnets in it that CAN harm an unborn child!!

  • If it's not burning you it won't burn the baby.

  • "There are magnets in it that CAN harm an unborn child!! " ... and if your unborn child were made of metal, this might actually matter.
