Dulux Satinwood in early pregnancy

Lovely hubby decided to paint our bay window in living room this afternoon. I sat there for ten minutes or so before the paint smell got too much and I went to a different room. I'm only 7 weeks pregnant and now worried about the fact I breathed in fumes from the paint!? I opened some windows and went upstairs away from the smell. And we have shut the door on the living room now he has finished painting. It's my first time being pregnant so I'm probably being over paranoid, hope so anyway!

As long as you didn't drink it, you'll be fine.

Nice one ozboomoo, I'm hoping to get some energy back soon and be able to do some DIY myself! x

I painted walls and sanded floors during pregnancy. You'll be fine ☺️

I've painted our bedroom since I got pregnant and will be doing the nursery and probably some more too.

DH kept me away from the styrene wood filler as a precaution though
