Is it okay to pump gas when you're pregnant?

I always smell alot of fumes and sometimes it's pretty strong. I was just wondering if I'm suppose to quit pumping my own gas or what?

  • do not sit inside your car and wait.. it will create a static charge if you start pumping and then get into your car. your clothes are rubbing all over the seats and can create a static electric charge. and you know what happens after that. this isnt just some hoaxy answer. i've seen it one the news

  • No, dont worry. it wont harm you or the baby.

    Pumping the gas doesnt take that long. You will be fine, dont worry

  • I always pumped my own gas. But, I would sit inside the car and wait. My baby and I are fine.
