This may sound like a stupid question but I went to the hospital to visit my nan and needed to put something in the bin I saw a bin for bottles and cups and opened it to place my cup inside and there was tissues with blood I them, I didn't touch it or anything like that but it really smelt and I'm just curious to know if you can contract anything from breathing around blood, I don't know if it was infected with anything as I don't know who's blood it was but as I'm 34 weeks pregnant and would just like to be safe.
