Well, i might have done. I peeled my apple, but there was some skin left around the top, which wad a bit grubby looking. Tried to munch round it but think i got some. Will i be ok? x

Try not to worry- i don't mean to be rude but you need to chill out or this will be a LONG pregnancy

I think the thing about dirt on fruit is related to risk of toxoplasmosis if the ground in which the fruit is grown has had cat poo in it. But apples grow on trees, so hopefully no need to worry.

Yeah, i also read it can be found in dust and dirt generally, but who knows .. I am probably overdoing the worry xx

Yes, in the nicest possible way, chill out. Have a peppermint tea or a bar of chocolate or something smile

At some point, the wind will blow some dust in your mouth. You can't avoid all dirt - so long as you usually wash your fruit or peel it, don't worry about a one off.
