Is it safe to get your nails done when you're pregnant??

This may be a stupid question...but is it okay to go get your nails done when you're pregnant because of the fumes? My friend came with me once when she was pregnant & I didn't think she should be in there because the smell was so strong. What do you think?

 For the little bit of time she is going to be in there breathing in the fumes shouldn't be a problem. Should could always ask them for a mask. But she shouldn't be getting any kind of acrylic nails put on her. Those chemicals will leach through her nail beds into her blood stream.

It is fine to get your nails done while prego, Just make sure you are in an area that has air flow. Also if you are getting a pedi have them becareful while rubing your feet.
