Any Products That Are Too Smelly

Phthalates are chemicals that are often found in fragranced beauty items like body lotion, perfume, and body spray. They can have a toxic effect on your pregnancy, (namely, they can stunt your baby's proper development), but oftentimes aren't present on labels. So it's best to stay away from anything too fragrant when pregnant.
