KoiKove:  That article even states that the studies done have very major variables that throw off the accuracy of the study, such as that if the mother had or previously had a psychiatric illness, it was much more likely that her children would develop behavioral issues. When they removed those pieces from the puzzle the chance of issue after 3 dropped by half. When they took into account women who never had a psychiatric issue, that rate of behavioral issues after 3 years dropped even more.

So, while there  may be a link, right now it’s not definitive and it’s not a very strong one. It even addresses women taking Tylenol to combat fever, which left untreated would do more damage to the child than if the mother had taken Tylenol in the first place.

Hyperventilate:  I agree, that’s why I put that artcle up vs. the other ones. Just because the link is tentative now, doesn’t mean people shouldn’t be aware of it. So def take it if  you have a fever, but think twice before you just have a headache. 

And the issue you mentioned had to do with ADD. The other issue with developmental delays was stronger and wasn’t reduced when looking at other factors. 

I know for me, I’d rather have the info and make decisions based on the info we have now than not have it at all.
