Do Not: Sit or Stand for Long Periods
Sitting or standing in one position for extended lengths of time isn’t recommended during pregnancy because it can cause swelling of the ankles and problems with your veins.
To prevent issues with your feet and legs, take short walking breaks regularly when you are seated and sit down often (with your legs up, if possible) when you are standing.
Do Not: Change Kitty Litter Boxes
Get somebody else to change the kitty litter box when you are pregnant if you can, as handling cat feces puts you at risk of contracting a parasitic disease called toxoplasmosis.
Toxoplasmosis is rare, fortunately. However, if a woman contracts it and it passes to the fetus, then your child could develop serious problems like brain damage or damage to the eyes.
