Cleaning while pregnant?

I am botu 5 or 6 weeks pregnant i know this is a silly question but would the smell of all the cleaning supplies harm the baby?
I was pregnant before but never had to clean up other than my room, but now its different.

  • You can always go for the more natural products. You can clean most things with a vinegr and water solution and scrub with baking soda mixed with a little dish soap.

  • Cleaning products won't hurt. But all natural do smell better.

    One thing to remember, whether pregnant or not... no mixing chlorine bleach and ammonia.
