Brief Answer: no harm to the baby Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXX, I have read your query thoroughly. The glass particles that you swallowed were very very small. Please relax; these cannot reach the blood of foetus or the baby. It would be filtered within you itself. Most likely you have passed the glass particles in your stools by now. Nothing to worry about. Neither would it reach the baby nor would it cause any harm to the baby. Hope this allays your worry. Enjoy your pregnancy :) Regards,
