Swallowed mercury filling, is this dangerous for my baby?


Hi there, I was just eating a piece of toast when suddenly it got crunchier than usual. I think I might have swallowed part of one of my fillings (some of which are mercury fillings) could this be dangerous for my baby? What should I do?
I'm really scared.

I would think that most likely it will pass right through you in a bm. If you're really worried you could call your midwife/doctor though.

the mercury in it is bound to other metals so I'm sure the whole thing will just pass right through you.

I would phone midwife or Nhs direct to check as Too murcury I think
can be dangerous as they say not to eat too much tuna in pregnancy as that contains mercury. It prob will pass thru but might get absorbed into blood stream also but I highly doubt there is enough mercury in a filling to cause any harm.
