Please don't judge. I am so panicked coming on here for some reassurance/advice - 19 weeks pregnant and decided to perm my own eyelashes, i picked up the what i thought was a clean cotton bud and put it in my mouth and it was the one with literally small traces of the perming solution on. Immediately panicked and spat it out, rinsed my mouth and brushed my teeth but i am SO scared I will have done harm to my baby. Can't get the taste out my mouth and feeling sick but i think it's all in my head with the worry. My rational mind is that everything is ok but my panicked pregnant mother mind is very stressed out and very scared. Please help reassure me if anyone can or is a doctor? xx

Didn’t want to read and run. I am sure everything is okay. If it was just a little on a cotton bud and you spat out, rinsed and brushed your teeth I am sure you never ingested much if any at all. It would be different if you drank a full gallon of the stuff.

It’s just natural to panic when you are carrying a little one. Do you have a midwife you can call for a little reassurance x
