I don't know that there is a list of all the things to avoid in pregnancy. Basically, you should try and follow a healthy diet, avoiding raw fish such as sushi or any uncooked foods. Overheatign your body can be a problem, so be careful with strenuous exercise and hot baths. You should start taking folate supplements too. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided.
