    Default electric blanket

    Hi all!

    Does anyone know if electric blankets are harmful in early pregnancy or if they pose harm while TTC?

    As far as I know it shouldn't be of harm when TTCing and as long as you don't have it on high while you are pg as you shouldn't over heat it should be ok.

    My doc said exactly what Kazz said....you can have it on, just not on high as you can't overheat while pregnant.While TTC you can though.

    Yeah I've heard the same thing. Don't have it up too high and make sure it is turned off once you get in. I think that it is up too high it is the same as having a really hot bath or doing too much exercise, you body gets overheated and your risk of m/c increases.

    With TTC I think the only affect it might have is that if your DP/DH gets too hot "down there" it can lower his sperm count and increase your chances of concieving a girl (boy sperm tend to die off in the heat).

    I banned ours when we were TTC.........didn't want DH's swimmers to get too overheated..........not sure if it made any difference though?!
