I am sick of my shittry looking yard. I want the weeds dead. Some of them are six feet tall. My husband bought a giant thing of roundup a month ago and hasn't done anything about it. Is it safe for me to use? I'm three months pregnant.

I would assume so as long as you don't get it on you and don't stand downwind from the spray. Have you tried googling the active ingredient?

 I wouldn't touch that stuff when I was pregnant, stayed away from those type of chemicals period.

I used it at 6 months preggo.  My dh sucks about doing yard work so I have to get my pregnant butt out there and pull weeds.

You should be fine, I've been weed killing lately too, they're horrible!   Just don't inhale it and try to not get any on you.

What lawn? Lol. Seriously. Its ALL weeds. It was a foreclosure and nobody lived in here at least a year before we bought it.
