  • None, you're fine. I had a lot of cramping (braxton hicks) at 31 weeks.

  • I got my nails done all the time and never had any problem. The smell in there can be pretty strong I usually ask them to point on of their little fans in my direction. I think your fine...

  • You should avoid strong chemicals, but what harm might have been done is done and you can't go back and change it.

  • your fine i have had my nails done three times this time around and if you had a mask then dont worry and just think if you go into a store you never know how many chemicals that they use and some are scentless so its not like you can smell it
