Well everyone must have thought of this at one point in time...So I'm gonna ask. 

Is it safe for my husband to paint the nursery while I'm pregnant? I won't be assisting at all, but I wanted Anaiese's room to be ready when she arrives as well as when her crib arrives at the end of the week.

Yes, absolutely! I actually did most of the painting of our nursery, I just kept the windows opened so it was well ventilated and took frequent breaks. But if you can get HIM to do it, that's even better! just keep the windows open to air it out

Yes. I painted my dd's nursery by myself. It was summer so I just kept the window open with a fan in it.

i painted houses for about the first half of my pregnancy. DF and I remodel houses and we paint a lot. Just make sure you have windows and fans on to keep it ventilated

I just sanded and painted a chair on my own today.

You'll be fine, you could even help him!

I ripped off old wallpaper, paneling and border then primed and painted my entire house when I was pregnant, lol. So don't worry about it you'll be fine!!

Thanks for your help ladies. Hopefully we can start on the baby's room this weekend. Though hubby refuses to let me help paint, which is perfectly fine with me. ^^ 

But thank you once again.

 Just curious, how do you pronounce your daughter's name? I wonder if it is pronounced the same as the middle name I'm giving my baby girl :)
