Painting during pregnancy.

Hi, I would like to know if painting my hall with ordinary paint will be harmful to my baby?

As you didn't say what kind of solvent the paint contains, I can't really say. Water-based paints are not dangerous, but certain solvents are not safe to use while pregnant, so make sure you choose a water-based paint… or better still, let someone else do the hard work!
