Is TTO safe while pregnant?

I keep seeing lots of things saying not to use TTO while pregnant/nursing, but I wonder if they mean ingesting it only?

I use a couple of drops in my daughter's wipe solution (which gets all over my hands) and I made some homemade green cleaner spray that has a good 30 drops of TTO mixed with 16oz of water. I haven't used it yet (just wanted to make sure it's safe before I do) I try not to inhale too much while cleaning, but my hands can get a little damp (I always wash my hands when done cleaning)

Thoughts or experience with this?

From the National Institutes of Health - U.S.National Library of Medicine:

"Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Tea tree oil seems to be safe when applied to the skin. But it should not be taken by mouth. Ingestion of tea tree oil can be toxic."
