Is it safe to put a laptop near your stomach while pregnant??

Whenever I go online I put my laptop on a pillow but its on my lap near my stomach I was wondering if it can hurt the baby because I read that microwaves and Xrays arnt safe while pregnant so I was wondering if its the same thing with laptops

  • oh wow, great question. I didn't have a laptop when i was pregnant last so it never crossed my mind about that. i hope someone knows.

  • Well, men are warned not to put a laptop on their lap because the heat of it can actually be detrimental to their sperm count so I would imagine it is no safer to put on a pregnant woman.

  • I don't, just because the laptop gets warm and it isn't the most comfortable. I have a lap desk for mine, or I'll use a pillow.
