    Default spider spray and oven cleaner

    Im wondering if this was a stupid move. I just sprayed the front door and around the windows on the outside of the house with Mortien Red Back spider Spray as we were finding alot of spiders in the house.
    I didnt read any warnings on the label that said not to use if pregnant but while i was spraying i found it hard to breathe even tho i was outside. Couldnt stop coughing now i feel like i have a bad attack of hayfever!
    I feel like ive just exposed bub's to some very hardcore toxic chemicals. Ive showered and i washed my hands straight away after using the spray. Im still sneezing!
    Was also wondering about oven cleaner while pregnant - that stuff is awful. Might get DH to do that one.
    Im 33 weeks pregnant.
    Will this stuff have any anwanted effects on unborn bub's?
    Im about to hit up google.

    I have no idea but I doubt it is good. Let the hubby clean the oven!!

    I hate the smell of bug spray, sooo horrible.

    Maybe give the poisons information line a call and see if they can give you any information.

    Default spider spray and oven cleaner

    Last week I totally gassed out a massive huntsman with bug spray. I'm 36 weeks pregnant and fine. I got some fresh air afterwards. I also just repotted a plant using gloves and a bandana tied around my face just in case of fumes. DH usually cleans bathrooms etc to try and stop me having too much exposure but sometimes you just can't live like that. Eg. That huge spider had to die!! And sometimes you just have to get the cleaning done.
    And I'm all good...
    Not that I'm a doctor or anything.
