I'm currently 21 weeks (almost 22 weeks) and my husband and I are getting ready to paint the nursery. I have been told that it is not safe for me to help but then again I was told as long as I wear a mask and have a fan blowing with the windows open I should be fine. So I'm not really sure? I'd ask my doctor but I don't see her for 2 weeks - So I thought I'd ask you ladies...

Jun. 3, 2008 at 9:24 PM It depends on the paint. The toxion levels in it can be harmful. A mask and windows open would be fine. But call your doctor and ask.
