If you use a Laptop... On your lap, does it worry you?

Ever since we bought a laptop 2yrs ago it kinda worries me what it could be doing to me lol!
I kinda worry about my reproduction area per se. Could I be doing something to my lil eggies.. Or is it bad when your pregnant?
Will I get leg cancer in 20yrs?

Am I the ONLY crazy one that worries about sitting a laptop on your legs?!
Tell me I am not alone!

  • I figure between the lap top, the cell phone and whatever else is the "cancer-causing" agent du jour, I probably don't stand a chance anyway! lol

  • I actually have never had that thought cross my mind! Now I am going to think about it every time I use my lap top. As far as hurting your "lil eggies" I didn't have an issue there, I had 3 babies in 33 months while using a laptop :)

  • Nope.  I use a lap protector.

  • I use mine on my lap and on my desk stand, I'm not worried at all about my reproductive system - I am very done having children.

  • I don't worry too much. I usually have something under my laptop, so it's not directly on my legs.
