I never heard that using a computer was dangerous if you were pregnant. As I am a writer I have to use them anyway if I want to make any money. I also use the computer to communicate on social networking sites such as facebook. I don't see myself not doing that for 9months. I'll probably just dictate if its found if its really dangerous and not a old wise tale. Also I plan to adopt this probably wont be a issue unless plans change dramatically.

i guess i have no choice but to use my/a computer when i get pregnant someday 'cause its part of my job. any kind of radiation is bad for anyone, especially pregnant women. but only certain monitors emit radiation and those are the ones that should not be used. newer kinds are better to use ( see labels at the back if they meet the standards that are set). if you feel dizzy it may just be due to strain, fatigue or lighting.

I have two beautiful and perfect daughters and I used the computer and cell phone the entire time during both pregnancies. The only warnings my doctor gave me in regards to using the computer was to make sure that when I was sitting at my desk that I use proper posture and get up and stretch periodically. When I was working while pregnant I would take a break every 1/2 hour or so and just walk to make a photocopy or get a drink, etc. Anything that meant I had to stand up and stretch. I don't think its proven that rays from computers or cells phones affect pregnancy. But imagine...its been proven that smoking and drinking have ill effects but women still do that. The key to a healthy baby is a healthy pregnancy. Take care of yourself and your baby will be healthy.

There has been tons of researches done about this and they all came to the same conclusion: computers are not harmful to pregnant women nor their babies. First time I heard about this, I thought it was about wireless technologies, so I thought one may just switch of his/her cellphone and stop using wireless networks. But it appears most Chinese women think using a cellphone is safe while using a desktop (no wireless) computer might be harmful, which does not make any sense. I mean nothing has been proven about cellphones, and many parameters may vary in that field so I would not recommend rubbing your belly on an antenna atop buildings everyday. But this is about computer. A laptop usually has a switch to cut all wireless activity, and a desktop has no wireless activity at all most of the time. Some even mentioned radiations coming from the screen, which is a total absurdity. Please, let everyone know that there is no harm using a computer. Not when you are pregnant, neither when you are.

I was pregnant recently and used my laptop most days without any harm. My baby girl is really healthy. I used my old computer when I was pregnant with my toddler son. He has spina bifida and that had nothing to do with computers. Many pregnant ladies have to use a computer for their work. They should make sure they get gentle exercise during the day.

Yes, I still used the computer when I was pregnant. First, I had to work and I must use computer. Second, I like computer and it's hard for me to live without it. I don't think it will be a bad effect on pregnant women. In fact many things will have the waves, such as the microwave oven, radio, TV, cellphone etc. If some people are so afraid of it, they should live in the jungle. I love China
