It's important to know that by week 10, your baby has a much smaller chance of having birth defects or congenital developmental problems, but this doesn't mean that nothing can harm your baby. The end of week 10 marks the start of the fetal period, which is when your baby's organs are developing quickly. This means that your baby is still at risk for problems if exposed to harmful substances or infections. It's very important that you continue to avoid alcohol, excessive caffeine (200 mg or more), and tobacco, including secondhand smoke. It's also important to talk with your doctor about what medications are safe to use during pregnancy. Infections may harm your baby, but certain medications may also be toxic, so make sure you're aware of your treatment options.
