Under normal circumstances, I don't wear a respirator for routine
histology, as our airflow is very good.  I attempted it when I was
pregnant with my daughter...but it didn't last long as the mask pressed on
a certain spot under my chin and made me want to throw up all the time,
even after the morning sickness had passed.  After that, I passed
fume-intensive tasks that could not be done under the hood (like changing
the processor)to coworkers and stayed out of the room while they were
being done.
