Patient :I am currently 10 weeks pregnant. I am a bit OCD, and cleaned my bathroom sink last night right before going to bed. I used a lot of Lysol Multi-Purpose cleaner, and it smelled pretty strong and bad. I closed the door to the bathroom thinking this would help, but the smell was so strong in our bedroom. I opened the window above the bed for some ventilation. I woke up this morning with the smell still there, and I feel like my smell sense are all whack. I can't really smell anything. My worry is, will this hurt my baby? Have I done any damage by sleeping in a bedroom where all I could smell was Lysol cleaner? I am super worried about the fact that the baby suffocated due to the smell or I have harmed it, by not leaving the bedroom and sleeping somewhere else. Please help. I am super worried and can't think straight.
