I live in a valley, and right now the forest fires have really flared up. Unfortunately, that means that the smoke often sits in the valley and gets thick and lingers here...for days and sometimes weeks.
We do not have AC and rely on opening windows at night to cool down. I am very concerned about being in this smoke and how it will affect my baby. Will my body filter out all of the bad stuff, or will it affect my baby if it is smoky?
I don't know what to do..I swear I would get a hotel somewhere else and stay there if I could afford to. (Or an AC unit, but we can't afford that either. Plus we would have to set it up to fit our windows and all that..)
I hate this..
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(
Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!http://findingtherainbowconnection.blogspot.com/
