Red face Please Help....I did something REALLY STUPID!

Hi all

I was hoping that someone here could

advise me on something that happened yesterday.

I don't know how I could have been so stupid

but I think I may have put my unborn baby's health at risk.

I had used bi-carbonate soda to clean the toilet with.

Basically, all I did was sprinkle it around the rim of the toilet. (can't remember

if the box touched the rim of the toilet, I think it didn't)

Anyway, last night, my husband was making a cake, and grabbed the bi-carb from the bathroom, and used a teaspoon in the cake. He told me that he had used it from the bottom of the pack of bicarb, not the top.

Now, I am beside myself with worry, because I ate some of the cake that had that bicarb in it. could any of those possible germs have contaminated the cake, and hurt my unborn baby???? He is moving fine at the moment, 12 hours later, but I am still worried.

What do you all think? Do I have good reason to be worried about this?

Re: Please Help....I did something REALLY STUPID!

honestly i think u have NOTHING to worry about AT ALL! i wouldve thought if any harm or contamination wouldve gotten into ur body that vomiting wouldve been a sign before harm to the baby would be. some women do drugs and drink and dont know their preg and go on to having healthy babies. like i said the only thing i think that wouldve come out of this wouldve been an upset tummy.

Its probably ok, cause as long as the cake was cooked all the way through that would have probably killed all the germs. Although I think I probably would have thrown up anyway, lol, just cause it came out of the bathroom! LOL

The intense heat from the oven killed any germs so do not worry.

This is kind of gross, but I read that the toilet is actually one of the cleanest (least number of germs) places in the house, because is it always dry! It has far less germs, for example, than the kitchen sink or cutting boards. Weird, I know.

Cademyn, I have heard that too. what I read said that sinks were actually the dirtiest places in the house. LIke sink handles and the bowls. I guess it makes sense.

I also heard that. There are actually less germs on human excrement than on human hands. Crazy, huh????

Well if you think it about it, it makes sense. Your hands touch all kinds of things all day long, your animals (if you have them) kids and their cold germs, raw meat, dirt, and most nasty of all, money! All those things have germs that wouldnt be in your poo unless you ate them like that. Also by the time poo comes out it has been filtered by your blood some.
