It sounds to me your suffering from PICA.. It definately doesnt sound safe to be sniffing petrol to me.. I would contact your midwife or gp Smile

Hiya, i had this with my son, my first baby, I dont know whether it was safe or not but i used to take a good whiff of brasso and firelighters regularly when i was pregnant with him (never knew they smelt the same until then lol) Im sure if you limit your sniffing it wont do any real harm!!!!!!! Laughing xxxx
