Is it safe for baby at 23 wks pregnant for me to be in car mechanics place for about an hour smelling fumes, looking at what was wrong with my car?

Your lungs filter out the fumes and unless you have experienced some symptoms yourself, it is very unlikely your baby has. Make sure you are well hydrated so any chemical byproducts can be more easily excreted through the urine. Your exposure to fumes is minimal as compared to the folks who work there. ...Read more

Small gas leaked in the back of car while driving, we rolled down all windows and I breathed into sleeve entire time. 10 weeks pregnant. is baby safe?

Small gas leaked in the back of car while driving, we rolled down all windows and I breathed into sleeve entire time. 10 weeks pregnant. is baby safe?

The same is believed to be true for gasoline. Its potentially harmful in high doses that make you sick. Baby is Probably OK! ...Read more
