  • I used cleaners all through my pregnancy as did both of my daughters in their's. If concerned, use organic cleaners or talk with your doctor.

  • I used them all the way through. If you are worried use white vinegar.

  • umm dont know who told you that you couldnt use cleaners in your first trimester but yes you can use them. just make sure your using them in a well ventalated area open windows if possible turn on vents. Dont use a over whelming amount. If you start to feel dizzy from the smell then step out of that room or outside for some fresh air.

  • I cleaned all through my pregnancy also.. If your concerned turn on a fan and crack the windows or buy all natural cleaners.

  • You should get someone else to do your cleaning for you that way you dont have to worry about anything,

  • Same as the other mamas, I cleaned through my entire pregnancies. I used gloves and cracked a window.

  • I used organic cleaners when I was pregnant.

  • Try to use natural cleaners, and either way, make sure you have some air flow. Use a fan if necessary. You really shouldn't be using any harsh cleaners while pregnant. Also, wear gloves, to keep anything from being absorbed. But I'd get your SO or a friend or relative to handle it if I were you.
