Breathing Gas Leak During 19 Weeks Pregnant?
Hello, good night, my doctor Anita is 22 years old, currently 19 weeks pregnant, when I did not realize that the gas stove in the kitchen was leaking, maybe when I slept a lot of gas inhaled … is it dangerous for my fetus? Can it cause abnormalities in my fetus? Thank you
Wa alaikumsalam Anita, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Although in terms of research there is no or very few who see the impact of LPG gas inhalation for pregnant women, but it can be said the impact will not be good for the baby. Because for adults only, deliberately inhaling this gas in large quantities will have a negative impact on breathing, especially for pregnant women.
But as we said earlier, there is still very little research, and how much gas is inhaled until it can have a negative impact, it is still unclear. Therefore in your current case, there isn't much you can do except control your fetus regularly to the obstetrician once a month at 6 months of pregnancy, once every 2 weeks at 7-8 months, and once a week at 9 month. With a routine check, the obstetrician will know if there are certain abnormalities and can be treated as soon as possible.
In addition, limit physical activity, consumption of vitamins and pregnancy supplements, increase consumption of vegetables and fruits, avoid smoking, pollution and coffee, and in the future be more careful with gas. So, hopefully answering your question.
