    Hi... my first post here...

    Um, well, I've been trying to have a baby and I have several dogs in my house and a lot of people have been telling me it's better not to have dogs as it's easier to get pregnant without them. They're also saying that I might have crippled baby because of the virus or something from the dogs... Is this true?

    Thanks for replies

    LOL, some people come out with rubbish don't they.

    As Karly said, just be extra careful with hygiene.

    Good luck with TTC :)

    lol some ppl.
    Why do they think that havin ababy u must rid of ya pets, as if its easy to do.
    like the girls sed just make sure the hygiene is up to scratch, but it would say dependin on the dogs size, for them not to go near the crib especially when your out of the room, as they may get excited and knock the crib over. Apart from tha the baby will be fine.

    I'm really glad about the responses to Sturia's post as I have 2 dogs and it got me thinking a bit, despite wondering how it could be true....

    Phew!
