Alright Ladies... it's been 9 months of suggestions, opinions, and dirty looks.
Let's reflect and share everything we did against the suggestion of others (not our Doctors, mainly old wives tales and such).
slweaver0626:I cleaned cat litter twice a week every week. I'm actually going to clean it again today at 40wk 1day. :
I was so high risk I honestly didnt do anything. I feel like such a goody goody.
I really want a turkey sub.
ETA: Oh wait.
I drink a medium coffee everyday. But Dr had ok'd it.
I've had the occasional small drink (glass of wine or shandy [half beer, half lemonade]). No guilt here!
Also, I worked up to 36 weeks, lifting small children multiple times a day to perform diaper changes. Everyone said you're not supposed to do that much lifting- my midwife was okay with it unless I wanted to stop, until I had a BP scare and she pulled me right out!

This is me as well. I do drink coffee every now and again, and I've had a few sips of beer. But both of those happened really late in the pregnancy.
I was really bad about not taking prenatal vitamins daily.
Also, painted, drank coffee, and slept on my back.

The only thing I can think of is drinking coffee. I completely gave it up during TTC and 1st tri, and most of 2nd tri, but then I started drinking a cup 4-5 mornings a week. But since it is below my doc's 250 mg recommendation, I dont think it's cheating.
I'm a rule-follower =) And dangit, I really, really want a white albacore tuna sub, in a bad way. And a cold turkey sub, too.
ErinC1014:I was really bad about not taking prenatal vitamins daily.
I drink a small cup of coffee a day, sometimes 2I've eaten lunch meat on occasion but have had a ton of pepperoni and hard salamiHad a drink here and there. A handful the entire pregnancyLicked the spoon of cake batter (GASP!)Help my husband move furniture
I'm bad. :(
I was so petrified that something would go wrong that I stuck to everything by the letter in the beginning. In general though I'm a fairy and tend to do as I'm told even if I see evidence to the contrary (just in case).
Just recently I started to have the odd bit of lunch meat here and there.
I could not get enough sweet tea! I've done all decaf for coffee, but the tea probably makes up for it. And the soda. >.<
I've been slacking on the prenatals this last month too.
My little bug, Madeline. Born June 2, 2013.
I drank coffee, didn't get a flu shot, and ate more than a few pastrami sandwiches. I also had two or three glasses of wine, and sips of beer here and there. I had California rolls twice, but only from a restaurant I trust.
This is reminding me I need to take my prenatals. I was so good until the last few weeks and now I keep forgetting!
