    Default Exposed to wood dust

    Hi,

    I am writing because I am a bit concerned. I am 30 weeks and we have moved to a new place and done some major renovations (removing walls and sanding and polishing floors), we used water based products so the floors dried faster and I didn't have to be exposed to fumes. I wasn't living there anyway while all this happened, but now that we moved to the house there is a bit of wood dust in some areas that I have been cleaning recently. I didn't wear any masks while cleaning and I am worried that I have hurt bub by breathing some wood dust. What should I do? Am I freaking out? Has anyone been in a similar situation?

    I think unless it was an enormous amount, you are probably exposed to worse when driving with the window down or vents open in traffic. I'm sure you will be fine and bub too
