Episode #60: Sleeping, Caffeine, Deli Meats, Sex: Answers to Common Questions About Pregnancy 

This episode is a little different than usual because I'm answering several common questions about pregnancy all in one shot. 

I hear these questions all the time, so I thought I would provide some clear answers on a few of these popular concerns.

In today's episode, you'll learn why you should sleep on your side while pregnant, why you should avoid deli meats and certain cheeses, and what the current research says about having caffeine while pregnant. 

We'll also talk about why you should avoid changing the kitty litter during pregnancy and what to know about having sex while pregnant.

I also have two special guests join me at the end for a little extra advice about how to handle fatigue during pregnancy.

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

  • What you need to know about sleeping on your back during pregnancy
  • Why you should avoid certain deli meats and cheeses while pregnant
  • How caffeine can affect your pregnancy and what the recommended limit is
  • Why you shouldn't change the kitty litter while pregnant
  • Whether it's okay to have sex during your pregnancy
  • What to do if you're fatigued while pregnant
