Does anyone have any solid advice on painting during pregnancy? I have heard so many different opinions. My Dr said its OK, just not to stay in the room for too long, and ventilate. Any advice?

Painting exposes you to oils, resins, solvents, driers, extenders, vinyl, latex, and acrylic. The pigments in paint can include metals such as lead, zinc, and aluminum. Because painting involves so many chemicals, and because it's so difficult to measure how much of the various substances the body actually absorbs, it is difficult to know the exact risks to pregnant women. (If you've already been exposed to these chemicals, but haven't felt ill, don't worry. The chances your baby will be affected are small.)

Thanks All. I oil paint once a week, and we are painting some of the house this weekend (not Lead paint of course).
