  • There would be a lot of manicurists out of jobs if that was the case! I have never heard that. And Like PP said pop is ok in moderation. I have about 1 can a day.

  • I painted my toenails right before I was induced, haha. As long as you're in a well-ventilated area, you'll be just fine.

    And soda is fine as well. I drank caffeine every day and my baby and I are perfectly healthy.

  • There is no reason why you can't paint your nails. I think you should get yourself a few books on pregnancy. There are many that are easy to read. If you are in school, then I assume you are young. You are probably amongst young people that have never been pregnant. Come back to this website anytime you need a little advice. Good luck.
