I've now been exposed to household pesticides twice in the last week.

Melinda,

I don't know enough to be of any help here, but I'm hoping that the minimal exposure you had will be okay.

I know some gals on here are very diligent about avoiding pesticides, preservatives, chemicals in their make-up, hair products, body washes/shampoos, etc. I'm not quite that vigilant, but due try to be conscientious.

I will tell you this...my girlfriend miscarried shortly after she had her dog and house sprayed for fleas. I NEVER said a word to her about it, but at the time I remember thinking, "eeek, I think I would move out for a few days." Then she miscarried and I felt so terrible for not speaking my mind.

Keep us posted!
