  • most likely not, you can keep a small notebook of questions for your Dr and include this one... most of the effects I have seen are from ingesting things... congratulations!

  • No, it's not harmful. We got our house and painted the whole thing while I was 7 months pregnant. Granted I wasn't in the house the whole time it was being painted but I was here a lot and I helped. You just did one room, everything will be fine. Congrats on being pregnant!

  • Probably not, I painted my parens shed when I was about 7 or 8 months pregnant and my baby was fine.
