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?

Exposure to fumes: At 23 weeks, the fetus is formed and protected from inhalation of fumes.

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

I would wear a mask if helping paint with your husband as a further precaution and again not during the first trimester of pregnancy. ...Read more

Yes: There are many complex chemicals in gasoline. Most of them are harmful to health in high enough concentrations, but our bodies are able to protect us from damage.
