5. Unwashed Veggies

While vegetables are wonderful to eat, especially while pregnant, you must take care in washing them completely before eating them. To do otherwise increases your chances of contracting toxoplasmosis. This is the same parasitic infection that you can get while taking care of your cat's litter box. If you contract this while pregnant, your baby is at risk as well. Results can be as severe as mental retardation and brain calcification. Don't take any chances - just wash your veggies before eating them!
