So I am 4 plus 3. Today I went to and stopped by my friends house after work and we were sitting in her yard and i noticed a smell. I asked and she said o my yard was sprayed by a company this morning with insectide. So I went inside immediately after that. I was only outside for about 8 minutes. The yard was sprayed 12 hours before I got there.

I am panicking I did harm.

We encounter so many environmental/food/stress/you-name-it hazards each day, and fortunately our bodies do a pretty darn good job of filtering it out for us, and especially for the babies we carry. You'll be just fine

Please don't worry. As pp said, we breathe in so much nasty stuff every day. You're exposed to a lot more noxious gas just walking down a busy street than 8 minutes where pesticide was sprayed 12 hours before. I'm the biggest worrier ever and even I'm telling you please don't be worried about this
At 16 weeks I did about 2 hours of solvent based gloss painting without thinking till AFTER that it might be harmful, and I googled an absolute ton and 100% found that the only way your body won't filter this stuff out before it touches the baby is if you have prolonged exposure day in day out for several days. A short one off exposure will definitely not do any harm. Hth
