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.

That being said this just seems like a bad idea and not a nice thing to do to a pregnant woman and her first trimester. Get a note from your doctor excusing you from this until after the pregnancy is complete. I would imagine your employer would agree. ...Read more
