My husband and I are planning on starting TTC our first baby in the next few months! I was wondering if there were any other ladies out there TTC who are artist/art teachers. I'm a little nervous about the art supplies I may use while I'm TTC or pregnant. I obviously don't want to expose my unborn child to anything that could be harmful, but I also have to keep working during my pregnancy.

Does anyone know if it's safe to use anything that's marked AP (non toxic)? I have a pre-conception appointment in May and I'm planning on asking my doctor, but I was curious if anyone had any insight on the matter.

Thanks!
Meg

Here's a link that may help you figure out which products you use that you can keep using & which ones you'll need to find replacements for. Good Luck!! http://www.greenamerica.org/livinggreen/toxicart.cfm
