When pregnant with my identical twin girls, I did gross dissection as
usual.  I did try to limit my exposure to xylene, but that was about it.
I did not worry too much about the formalin exposure since my exposure
limits have always been well below the acceptable levels.  My girls were
born at 35 weeks 5 days due to pre-eclampsia, but they were healthy and
did not spend any time in the NICU.  Now they are 22 months old and
running all over the place.
