My children are now 13,10, and almost 6 and my experience was the same. My last 2 children were higher risk because I was preeclamptic with the first and was diabetic with the last. I made a list in the lab of all the chemicals after I physically went through and read each MSDS. If anyone is interested I would happily fax it to you.
Merry Christmas!

Hi Histonetters,

I actually just had a healthy baby girl 8/10/07  and was a high risk
pregnancy ( diabetic) while finishing my HT and working full time in the
histo lab at Mayo.  I was advised by my OB to limit my formalin
exposure, to limit my xylene exposure as much as possible, and to be
very careful in special stains area.  To also be careful of B-5 which we
use for our bone marrows and the list goes on.  Basically I was limited
to cutting and embedding most days.

Hope this helps!

Laurie Popp, BA HT ( ASCP)
and happy mommy to Kaiana :-)
