Just before I found out I was pg, i started painting my dd's room. Is that ok to do that when you are pg? I'd be happy to let dh do it, but it may never get done!

either google or do a search for "low voc paint" & also "xero voc paint"

*they* say that a zero VOC (volatile prganic compound - the toxins that are in & that get released until paint is dry & room is fumigated) is safe. I think Sherwin-Williams is the co. who sells a line of safe-paints, under the name "Harmony" If not maybe google "Harmony safe paint" & see what comes up... or hire someone or ask an artistic friend, or dh

also, always have excellent vent. & wear gloves, even for latex, which all zero/low VOC paints are
