What is the danger of household chemicals?
All objects of everyday life, as we use every day, have their influence on us. Sometimes it is not very positive, and sometimes even threatens our health. And the first in this list are household chemical goods. No, the future baby will not harm these products if you avoid using particularly toxic products, such as cleaning particularly contaminated areas of a house or household equipment: a means to clean plumbing from rust and plaque. If you still use these tools, since there is no other way out, provide yourself clean air - ventilate the room where you carry out the cleaning and constantly go out to get some fresh air to the street.
Household chemicals are used in the repair of premises. In general, repairs during pregnancy are best not to start, especially at a later date. The most dangerous in these cases is paint, known for its persistent odor and toxicity, which even a normal healthy person causes dizziness and nausea. Avoid exposure to paints containing lead and latex paints containing mercury. Instead, use water based paints, having studied before their composition for the presence of harmful substances. Probably, it is unnecessary to remind that pregnant women can not be engaged in painting.
No less great danger is made by insecticides - chemical preparations for the destruction of insects. Accidental contact with such a drug is unlikely to harm a future mother or child. But here the repeated exposure of a chemical substance after a certain period of time is very harmful for both. This can lead to the occurrence of congenital malformations. If you have unwanted insects in the house like flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches, try to avoid the use of nebulizers, resorting to non-chemical methods (for example, put mosquito screens on windows). In addition, the market has a large selection of less hazardous products.
Pets are harmful?
How can harm a little innocuous cat, which is washed almost every day? But it is she, unlike a dog or even a rat, at times, the most dangerous creature for her pregnant mistress. This applies to those cats, who were picked up from the street or have constant contact with street cats. The fact is that some street cats can be carriers of a rare infection known as toxoplasmosis. The nature of this infection is such that it affects the reproductive system, causing fetal death or the birth of inferior children. Therefore, during pregnancy, it is better to give the cat for the time being relatives, and after the birth of the child to take back, because this disease will no longer threaten his life.
Cold and heat are contraindicated
Jacuzzi, steam and sauna are contraindicated during pregnancy. True, only in the first seven weeks. Studies show that if during this period the body temperature of a pregnant woman rises above 38, 9 А C, With more than 10 minutes, she is at risk of miscarriage or the birth of a child with neural tube defects, such as a spina bifida. That's why overheating is so dangerous for pregnant women. But already in the second and third trimesters you can visit the Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room only for less than 10 minutes.
It is also dangerous for pregnant to supercool. A child from cold is unlikely to suffer, but you can get sick as an elementary cold, and pneumonia. And already these diseases, and especially their treatment, are a problem for both. Therefore, as they say, you need to keep your feet warm, as well as your head.
Over the years, air quality is far from improving. Especially if you take into account its gas content and saturation with harmful substances. Although the fact that such air harms the future child, it is not proven, those who live in large cities, still advised to follow certain rules. First, avoid being in areas of high pollution. This is primarily the areas of factories, factories of enterprises that throw harmful production products into the air. Try at the same time often breathe fresh air, because the air quality in the room can be several times worse than what is on the street. Try not to use toxic household products. The quality of air in the house is affected by dampness and mold. Also check the heating devices that can release carbon monoxide - a compound that is hazardous to health.
In addition to the above mentioned dangers, which accompany women in everyday life, there are also dangerous diseases for them, especially infectious ones. These are chickenpox, infectious erythema ("fifth disease"), thrush, rubella, group B streptococcus, hepatitis B, HIV / AIDS, the above-mentioned toxoplasmosis, urinary tract infections, and others. It is better to avoid sick people for these diseases. And if you notice the first symptoms of these diseases, be sure to see a doctor. It will also require his advice in cases of some other dangers, for example, in cases of undesirable signals about the problematic course of pregnancy. Such a signal can be vaginal bleeding, fluid flow from the vagina always consult a doctor.

So, something goes wrong and you need to do something. Do not pull if you feel pain or notice blood. Do not try to find out for yourself what it can be, but rather spend this time to get to your doctor in the first place.
