we painted one of our spare bedrooms this weekend and im Ovulating!
I didnt even think about it being harmful till we were done??
we have to paint one or 2 more rooms still, should i not paint it? or should i just wear a mask?
No, most of the paints now are almost scent free and it's the fumes that are bad for you when pregnant. I painted when I was pregnant, no problems, just make sure your room is ventilated.

My hairdresser still dyed hair & did perms thru her whole pregnancy, so I can't imagine those fumes being much different than paint fumes. When in doubt, ask your Dr. But I'm sure you're fine. GL
