Hi there, I am 9 weeks along. Last night, I inhaled some fumes from burning plastic. It was the handle from a pot. I am sure it was burning for a while until we noticed the smell. Once we realized what was happening, we quickly opened the windows but the small lingered in the house for at least an hour. I tried to go upstairs and realized it was worse upstairs. I am sure while I was running around, I inhaled some of it as well. After opening all the windows, I stood in front of the window but was able to still smell it. What kind of harm this can bring to my babies? I am carrying twins. This isn't something I would want to experience ever again. terrified.View Thread
