  • Don't worry so much I find as I read the more worry about everything I have done or might do wrong. I have eaten raw cake mix, used spermicde condoms, died my hair, drank pop, moved myself out of an upstairs upartment by myself in 100 degree weather, and God only knows what else I might have done to this poor child before I knew it was in there!!!

  • I died my hair even when I knew I was pregnant. My doctor said that if it was in a well ventilated area, there was nothing wrong with it, other than the possibility of the smell making me nauseous. I did not take prenatal vitamins at all. I tried for 2 weeks, and they made me sick. So instead I simply ate really healthy, watched how much junk I allowed myself, drank 100% fruit juices instead Soda's, and my baby came perfectly healthy. The doctor said my placenta was HUGE, as was Kaylee's umbilical cord, which are 2 things that they go off of to see how healthy you were during your pregnancy. I don't think you will have a problem.

  • I dyed my hair at 2 months also -- everythings ok

    SSSHHHH!!!! Don't tell my doctor I crave raw cookie dough and still take a nibble every now and then (less than 1/2 a teaspoon)

    hotdogs and lunchmeat "raw" is only because of the bacteria they might carry. just try not to eat em raw all the time.

    as far as the vitamins - as long as the doc say's you're healthy and the baby is healthy you're fine.
