I'm 30wks today & I've got a painter in to freshen up some of the rooms in the house.

Baby's room, passage, kitchen & bathroom.

I know it's abit to late now as the guy is already here painting away. But is this safe? I'm not painting myself and won't be sitting in the painted rooms & fully vented with windows open

Have I made a mistake sad shock

I think its fine. Just don't spend lots of time around the non-water based paints whilst they are wet

No it's fine. Like you say, keep airing the place out but paint these days is much better than it used to be - much lower voc (volatile organic compound) content.

You'll be fine. As long as it's ventilated and aired. I got my living room plastered and painted in there, the hall and kitchen during my last pregnancy. Also done some of the painting myself. I've always got this image in my head of a pregnant woman in dungarees covered in paint.... Maybe an advert on TV when I was younger? Lol I don't know x
