Can you paint while pregnant?

I am currently 15 weeks and 1 day. I was wondering if you can paint the baby's nursery while pregnant???

I personally didn't and I left the house while my family and friends did it for me because of the fumes.

I did during my second pregnancy (as well as mudded/ patched holes/ laid tile and the works). I was sure to wear a mask whenever anything dust-wise was involved, left windows open, turned on the ceiling fans in bathroom, laundry room, and used box fans to help blow the fumes out faster.

Wow, that's a lot of work for a pregger mama!KUDDOS TO YOU!!! I am probably going to hire someone to paint the nursery. A lot of fumes/chemicals. I don't want my lil baby to be exposed to anything potentially harmful... Thanks :smileyhappy:
