Unless you have some physical restrictions, I'd think it is ok, but I'm not a doctor. If you are going to paint, I'd use low odor or water based paints. That way the fumes won't make you or the baby feel bad.

Thanks ladies...Hubby HAS to help. I am short and I am definitely not standing on a ladder! I just know if I don't help at all it may not get done I will look for the low odor paints and since it's warming up outside, we'll keep every door and window open since it will only be he and I and maybe some helpers there.
we have been painting also. we got all the primer on before move in so we are doing the rooms gradually. DF does them mostly while i'm at work so we opted to get regular paint, not the low VOC as it is uber expensive. i hardly ever notice any smell. sometimes he will do a coat while i am here. we just have a big fan we point at it to help dry and i barely notice any odor at all. i think its fine.
Wow, things have changed in the last 15 years. When I had dd, nobody allowed pregnant women in a room being painted. I know that they've changed paints a lot and improved the chemistry, but I am still cautious and would not paint a room now. I guess it's been cemented into my memory now.
