    Default Painting while Pregnant??

    Hi Ladies!
    First time posting in the pregnancy forum! I'm a bit over 6 weeks - still early and it feels like its draging along - a want to shout it out to the world that we are expecting!
    Anyways we bought a house a few months ago and i want to paint over the horrible red, jade and dark purple feature walls! its only 3 walls all the rest of the paint is fine. Can i paint while pregnant? if i open all windows and wear a dust mask?
    TIA!

    Yeah, should be fine.
    I painted DS1's room when I was 34 weeks, and DS2's when I was 28.
    Just make sure you have good ventilation, and don't strain yourself

    Have fun painting. Dh thinks I'm a weirdo as I love painting

    We painted DD room when I was 30wks. It was the middle of summer so window was wide open. Plus, because I'm such a perfectionist, dh wasn't allowed to cut in the edges, so I was on the ladder (very carefully, bottom rung) cutting in myself
