1st Trimester

Wife exposed to epoxy hardener fumes in bathroom

Can't stop freaking out about this one.  My wife is seven weeks pregnant.  Contractor came in on Friday and used some epoxy in our bathroom to glue something together.  Smell was awful due to the solvent used to harden the epoxy.  She immediately went and showered without really thinking about it.  It was only afterwards that she realized that may have been a bad thing.  Total exposure time was probably 20 minutes.  We are FREAKING out about birth defects and damage to the baby.

I came home and ventilated everything away and everything is fine now, left a message with the OB and will hear back tomorrow.  Has anyone dealt  with anything like this?  Is our baby doomed?
