Is it safe to install carpet while pregnant or ttc?

This summer my work is planning on installing new carpet. I will be on vacation when they do it. I really want to ttc again, but am afraid b/c of what I've heard about new carpet emissions. Is it safe? especially since i won't even be there.

  • I think the installation isn't going to be the problem....but the carpet will "off gas" for awhile after it's installed.

    Maybe the carpet is one of the new low-emission variety?

    As for it affecting your ability to conceive, I doubt it will make that much difference. There' s so much just floating around in stores you go to every day, in your own home, in your car, outside...
