Early pregnancy - cleaning with bleach

Hey guys. Just found out I’m pregnant, first time! Only 4 weeks so no scan as of yet. But my worries today- I was cleaning today with flash floor cleaner and after 10 mins I started to feel a big sick and dizzy so sat down. Sickness wasn’t bad but I felt weird(I can’t explain the feeling). Dizziness for about an hour. To this date I have had no symptoms, so no morning sickness. Could someone please help me out my mind to rest that I haven’t put my babies health at risk? Or have I? I can’t get an app with a midwife yet so not sure who to go to :(

unless you drank the floor cleaner it will have no impact whatsoever.

think about it logically - shops are not selling something so toxic that simply using it can cause birth defects. And do you know anyone who has ever had a confirmation of a problem during pregnancy because they threw a bit of flash over the floor?

You don’t need to call anyone. It’s not a problem.

Pretty sure you'll be fine. It's normal for me to get a bit woozy with certain cleaning products, when both pregnant and not pregnant (often hold my breath tbh). Never had any lasting affects.
