I am about 4-5 weeks pregnant and iv just got a shock off the oven. Just a small shock off the gas ignition that lasted a second or two and i only felt it in my finger, no burn or anything.

Does anyone know if this is dangerous to my baby?

Called NHS direct and they offered almost no advice and said if i started having heart palpataions or any other symptoms i should go to A&E.

anyone had a shock in early pregnancy?

Do you mean a static shock like you get from supermarket trollies or metal doors???

From the sounds of it it wasn't even dangerous to your finger so I expect your baby will be fine.

It was just from the ignition bit...

Harmless, no current involved just a high voltage so nothing to worry about.

I had this and rang midwives in a panic- they laughed at me ( in a nice way!) and said not to worry, hope that helps x

I blew myself across a room from a faulty plug at 4 weeks pregnant . DS is unharmed ( although he does have seriously curly hair grin)
