  • Just make sure you are ventalating the room well, and don't stretch too much. Make sure your DH does most of the work! lol

  • I was told paint was fine as long as you vent the room really well and yes you can get paints that are safer to use while preg. I went to Sherwin Williams and they were wonderful and helped me get the best paint, While painting I didnt even smell anything in the room.
