  • oh wanted to add, just do it where the smell of the polish isnt so strong. I dont think it will hurt baby, but it may make you sick to your stomach, it did me.

  • Just do it in a well ventilated place...my doctor let me paint the staircase while pregnant as long as I kept the windows open. =)

  • yes - ask your hubby to do it for you! My dh painted mine for me when i was pregnant because it got so uncomfortable reaching over and it was a nice pampering.
