Hi--what exactly was the spray brand and were the rooms ventilated--the windows open? Did you spend any more time in the rooms than it took to spray them?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Johnsons 4fleas household spray


I would have been in each room for about a minute. Both rooms I had the windows open then shut the doors and came downstairs

OK Julie--really no cause for concern here. That kind of spray is not dangerous to a developing fetus at all and even if it were you weren't exposed long enough for any problem to develop and it was in ventilated rooms. I myself am not at all worried about this but if you'd like, call your doctor and discuss the situation with him
