... 18 weeks, just did the dreaded bathroom clean, now feeling weird from the bleach fumes... Won't affect baba will it?????

No, baby will be fine.

Perfect excuse for you to delegate the bathroom clean to someone else for the next 22 weeks. Excellent.

I had this. I could smell bleach from yards from a mile away. It still makes me ill now, (and my DC are 22 and 15) and can sometimes bring on a migraine or vomiting.
Didn't affect DC in any way, though.
I developed the same reaction to other stuff too, gloss paint, oven cleaner, turps etc.

I developed a deep love for the smell of Tesco bathroom cleaner around that stage. I once got up in the night for a sniff blush

Worryingly I've discovered a love of petrol smell after I got some on my hand the other day.... I know it's wrong but so right! grin
