I read somewhere that you shouldn't be around paint fumes while your pregnant. I dunno how true this is, or if it's even true. But if so.. How long should I stay out of my room after it being painted? And how long should I get it painted before I'm due so fumes wont affect LO?
you need to be careful of fumes in the third tri but we have been doing alot of decorating and i think as long as you ventilate the room well you will be fine. Nowadays paint does not have such a toxic smell. I would get it done asap though before LO comes x
Funny you should ask this as I've spent a happy evening painting trim. I don't notice the smell particularly - I'm using a water-based paint, not an oil-based gloss, though, which is supposed to be ok during pregnancy.
