I made lunch today for myself and DH. Macaroni & cheese - boxed, but with the foil cheese pack at least. Anyway, when I turned off the stove, I guess I had a pregnancy moment, and didn't turn the knob all the way to the click off.
About 5-10 minutes later, I was in the dining room (open air set up next to kitchen) and I could smell gas. I immediately got up and turned the stove off. DH never smelled a thing. The back door was open the whole time (next room) so the dogs could go in and out, and once I realized what happened I opened a few more windows and went outside to finish my lunch.
So, of course, now I am worried that I exposed my fetuses to dangerous levels of the gas. I probably wouldn't be so worried had I not seen ER a few weeks ago where a pregnant woman woke up early in the morning and her whole family had carbon monoxide poisoning from the heater, and the placenta had actually absorbed most of it making her able to wake up and save the family.
Okay, I know I am neurotic, but I have suffered a m/c, infertility, and had IVF for these 2 and am constantly frightened I am going to screw it up somehow. I just want to know if anyone has any good reason to think that anything could have happened because of it. DH thinks it is fine, but I worry...
