I love to garden and be outdoors. We just bought some veggies and I have some flowers and houseplants that I need to get in pots ASAP. I've always had issues with mosquitos (they love me) but now it's worse than ever. I mean I can't walk outside for 5 minutes without getting eaten alive. I despise the thought of using bug spray esp with DEET in it, but I feel like it's even worse if I get exposed to whatever nastiness these little blood suckers are carrying.

What about you ladies with previous pregnancies, did you use OFF or any other kind of spray while pregnant??

Would you do it now?

I'm very torn right now and I really just wanna be outside!

I get eaten alive too. I live in the woods and they are unavoidable. I have to use the kind with Deed to even begin to be outside. I am going to the Dr tomorrow and I will ask him. Please hold!

I really want some DoTerra bug stuff. Our natural market had one that was non-toxic I loved and would like to find again.

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

My OB said to avoid DEET but it's okay to use others without DEET

lurking from EDD Jan. 2014--my in-laws use dryer sheets. rub your shirt, shorts, arms/legs with a dryer sheet, and the buggies stay away. smells good and not oily like all those sprays.

just an idea.

Okay I asked the OB this today. He said I can use anything I want BUT you must shower afterwards. Don't go to sleep in it and such. He said it wont absorb much in a few hours but over night is a No No!
