I think low VOC paints are a must (I think most non-industrial brands are nowadays), and water-based paints are probably better than oil-based paints (since they clean up with water and no paint thinners or anything). If you are stripping or scraping old paint off, I'd have someone else do that, since there may be lead paint underneath. keep the windows open if you can, just because the smells may upset an already queasy tummy.
I'm painting my living room right now, and the only problem I have is getting too tired, especially trying to do the ceiling and going up and down the step-ladder, so my DH has taken on most of the work.
