I was using a hand held mixer that I hadn't used in a while and it appears it gave me an electric burn.  I have never experienced this but I figured that is what happened.  It started out feeling like a paper cut in between my fingers and then it started burning more and spreading to my other fingers and part of my hand.  It's seems to be going away now after 10 mins.  Should I be concerned about the electricity going through my body and affecting my baby?

I'm going to go with you are probably fine. Check with your doctor or midwife if you need more reassurance and haven't done so already.

Yeah, I feel everything should be fine too.  It actually took a couple of hours for the burning sensation to completely go away and then an hour later it came back and left and came back again, but the next day it was gone for good.  I'm not going to mention it to my midwife otherwise I'm scared they might want to move me from low risk to high riskall of a sudden, I can't risk that.
