To top all my worries about my 20week scan tomorrow off I took a spoon out of the dishwasher at work thinking it was clean, used it to eat my yoghurt (which obviously involved licking) and one of the girls pointed out they weren't the clean ones..... This had put me into a panic of all the potential diseases I've put into my system. Stupid spoon looked clean though
Genuinely cried (and keep crying at my desk a bit) such a silly mistake
You cried over a dirty spoon?!!! Have you ever become ill from using a dirty spoon before? I am SURE there is nothing AT ALL to worry about. Your body is good at fighting off most stuff and it's very rare that anything gets transfered to your baby. Mostly the worst that can happen is it makes you quite sick/poorly. Chin up, stop worrying (and crying!!!!!), and look forward to seeing your beautiful baby at your next scan!
Goodness what must your colleagues be like if your this worried . Germs are good for the immune system, my children/babies have eaten far worse, i once caught dd licking the wheels of her pram and she has lived to tell the tale.
I had really bad food poisoning from chicken in my first pregnancy and that's all it was, really bad food poisoning, dd also fine from that experience.
My point is, babies are tough, you need to relax, you'll do yourself more harm with all this worrying.
My DD1 put cat diahhorea (sp?) in her mouth when about 9 months old (don't ask!!!!!!). She wasn't even sick. I did get the cat screened for various things at the vet though. I'm sure the spoon event will be fine - like people have said it was probably used in hot tea. Like magicmelons says, babies are tough.
...to add to all previous replies, DO NOT GOOGLE YOUR WORRIES! I did once and ended up reading a terribly frightening story and stressing like hell when all that was happening was the baby was pressing against my stomach muscles a bit
