yes as long as you aren't doing any of the acrylic stuff on your toes and get them to let you wear a mask while there so your not inhaling the smells of the chemicals. Most places offer them for pregnant mothers and as long as your not going like twice a month it should have no effect on the baby. And it feels amazing to have them massage your feet when your preggers!! have fun!!
ok just checking bc one of my friends said I couldn't and I thought that was weird.

Yes, it won't hurt anything. - No hut tubbing, personally I would avoid chemical hair procedures and no extreme lifting- otherwise do what you normally do and just relax. Do not worry about things or you will drive yourself nuts. Your baby is naturally protected.
if they do leg massages with the pedi i would wait til you are close to the 3rd trimester. there are pressure points in your legs that can trigger labor (they dont always... but it could happen). I graduated from massage therapy school and was pregnant during part of it and they would not touch me anywhere until i was in my 3rd
Personally...I would not set foot in a salon pregnant because of the toxic air! It is always completely un-breathable if you are NOT pregnant...all the nail polish and chemicals in the air. It can 't be GOOD for the baby or you to breath in.
I WOULD however find a private or WELL ventilated place to get a pedicure if I really wanted one. Maybe a friend who you are close with who likes to do those things?
