I just have to say that I feel like the biggest doofus! Okay, so my DH and I bought our first home together in August. The house turned out to be the money pit. We need to be out of our apartment by Nov. 17th. We've been scrambling to get it done for months now. We've been trying to have a baby, but in the mean time I've been working on the house like normal. Well once I found out I was pregnant, I slowed down on my efforts to get the house done. There's so much that has to be done though, and we haven't told our families about the baby. So for the past 2 weekends I've been trying to avoid painting. Our families have been coming over to help, and I have them doing all of the painting, and I try to stay out of the house, or go on errands and stuff. I had to do some painting though, and I feel horrible about it. I'm really worried now. I shouldn't have painted, and I was in the house while stuff was being painted. I tried to stay away from it, but there's so much that has to be done! GRRR! I feel like such a dummy! I hope everything will be okay. I figure, I was in the facinity of the paint fumes for probably 30-45 minutes through the weekend. Maybe a little bit more, but not much. I just had to vent. I can't really talk to anyone about this, and I'm worried! GRRR!
Thanks ladies...

I think you'll be okay. Prolonged and continual exposure is something you'd want to avoid!

We bought a house right before we found out we were pregnant with DS. I spent a few days painting the hall, living room, and dining room with DH, then a couple of days later got those 2 pink lines. DS is fine.
