> Bathtub reglazing by Handyman on 02/27/2007

I am 5 months pregnant and was exposed to fumes from a bathtub reglazing project in an apartment on the first floor of my building last week. I live on the 5th floor but could smell the fumes in my apartment. I had a fan on and, when the fumes were light, that seemed to work. When the worker was done, he put a fan in the apartment door and blew the fumes into the hall. At that point, the fumes in my apartment got so strong I had to leave the building. I had about 5 minutes of exposure right outside the door of the apartment where the work was being done when I was investigating and later when I talked to the worker and I had about 15-20 minutes exposure to fumes in my apartment. Does this short exposure post a risk for damage to my fetus?
