pregnant and gas fumes
melanieja posted:
I am in need of some advice. We had some gasoline spill outside our house which later seeped into our foundation and in our house. Our gas company, fire department and health department have all came out to look and decided it was high enough to turn off the gas and air everything out. It took 3 days to finally figure out what was going on.
I am 27 weeks pregnant and have been in smelling and breathing this in my home for 3 days now. I have called my doctor and I am going in for an ultra sound tomorrow but does anybody know if this could cause a problem on my poor little unborn baby??
Any advice would be helpful!
Thank you!
