If you're pregnant you should put off any painting projects until after your baby is born. I know that some companies do make "safer" paints with less fumes but I don't think it's really worth the risk. If you absolutely must paint you should wear a full face respirator. I wouldn't trust the regular small masks, personally. It's best to have someone do the painting for you and make sure the area is very well ventilated while doing so.
