  • Why cant you just wait until after pregnancy to get peircings? I mean its only 9 months of your life. But ears would be the only one I would think is okay to get during because of the less possibility of infection.

  • I'm with mommieagain! There are ALWAYS dangers when being pierced, and there is no need to put your baby at risk for something so small. I would just say wait. If you got a piercing before you knew you were pregnant, I wouldn't worry about it, but I also wouldn't plan on having one done til after you have the baby.

  • I wasn't planning on getting any piercings, a girl I work with who is 6months was planning on getting another piercing on her lip that week. I told her that it wasn't smart to do it while pregnant, but she's like it's my body and I'll do what I want. I told her that's fine but you want to risk infection or any type of disease given to you or your unborn daughter than that is your choice.
