I've spent this weekend painting baby's room, sanding, painting, glossing and then sleeping next to it. I had no idea that pregnant women aren't supposed to be exposed to paint fumes... My head tells me it'll be ok; my hormones scream at me: what have you done to your baby?? Please tell me you have painted and it's been fine??
I redecorated the entire house at 32 weeks pregnant, dh did mention that maybe balancing on a step ladder was not a great idea, and if my nesting instinct was that bad I could always Hoover instead, cheeky git!! 8 week old dc3 is fine and fast asleep.
They (NHS) say if you're just doing your own DIY (not the forth bridge) and have windows open it's OK. I wear a face mask but that's just me, I hate smells/tastes like that in the air even when not pg.
