So I announced to some coworkers the other day. I promptly received my first piece of (unwanted) advice.
I've been using an electronic heating pad at work. Since getting P, I've been more easily cold than usual, and now my whole body will shiver, my teeth will chatter. I've been keeping the heating pad away from my belly, and just been using it on my lap / knees.
My coworker said to me "You know, that pad gives off a huge amount of electromagnetic waves. You shouldn't use it. It's really bad for the baby." I was a bit stumped and just thanked her for that piece of information, although it later annoyed me just because of how she said it.
Either way, I asked my fiancé what he thought about it when I got home, and he agreed with my coworker. And since then, he's been nagging me to "be careful" with my laptop too. I use my laptop on my lap, sometimes I put a pillow underneath it. It's never directly on my belly, but I guess you can say it's still pretty close by.
Are you concerned about electromagnetic waves at all? I can't help but feel like this is just another way to scare pregnant women, but maybe I am wrong. A quick google search didn't yield any helpful results. What do you guys think?
