Took shower after it had been sprayed down with bleach. Smelled strong. 30 weeks pregnant. Harmful to baby?
Not harmful: The amount of chlorine your would have breathed in, then get through your lungs, your system and to baby would be so tiny that it poses no risk to the baby.

Get a note : I am not aware of pepper spray causing any problems for a pregnant woman.
