I am 6 weeks pg and as i was merrily sticking a few christmas decorations together with some quite strong glue, before putting them away, i suddenly wondered if i had done my bean any harm? I'm only talking 5 mins exposure, a couple of times in the past month. I have stupidly googled and now i am panicking about the 'birth defects and spontaneous abortion' i have read about.
please tell me this is referring to people who sniff it / work with it etc....

You will not have done any harm whatsoever.

its not ideal - I'd avoid it from now on but I doubt one short exposure will have done any harm whatsoever

Everyone comes across dodgy fumes at some point in their pregnancy despite their best intentions, as long as the exposures are short and few I really wouldnt worry

i know, sal, i won't be doing it again. it's just given me something else to worry about!huw, hercules, thanks for your reassurances. i'm finding this pg so stressful and am worrying about everything,as well as feeling far worse than last time.

olivo, was just about to reply to your post when I realised it was you; hello there! ((waves)) Don't worry - I have the same panics daily and find myself worrying about everything I've breathed in/eaten/drunk/thought(!). It's the hormones at work - just keep reminding yourself that it's normal not to be completely rational at the moment! When you see your little bean kicking on the scan in a few weeks you'll feel immensely reassured. Hang in there.
