Need some reassurance

I've just painted mine and my mums nails in our lounge, the window isn't open but it's on vent about 10 ft away. I could obviously smell the fumes and now I'm paranoid it could harm the baby or cause me to miscarry - any advice?

TIA

you will be fine hun. Pregnant women paint their toes and fingers all the time.

Thank you!

I know it sounds silly but it only takes one well meaning friend to say "if you paint your nails and you're not sat next to an open window you'll miscarry or your baby will stop breathing" and then it pops into your mind and then goes round and round!
