Looking for some other input on getting your nails done while pregnant.

I'm 13 weeks. I'm also 21 and have been getting my nails done since I was 16. When I asked the doctor she didn't actually give me a straight answer. She said theres nothing that directly links getting your nails done to any problems, but that there wasn't alot of research. I'm willing to stop getting them done it'd probably be better for my budget... But i also can't imagine not having the acrylics. I'm between theres probably nothing wrong and the baby will be fine and It's better just not to risk it. What do you think?

As long as its clean equipment it should be fine. If there are any strong smells you could always wear a mask.

You both will be fine. If you are worried about the fumes just ask for a mask.

With my first pregnancy I was getting my nails done an a regular basis and he was born completely healthy. I have never had any issues. Although the fumes are horrible lol.

I say go for it.  I've never stopped getting pedicures, and one of my close friends goes on a regular basis for her nails while pregnant.

I stopped getting acrylics (I'm 21 and 34 weeks) which was hard because I've been getting them since about 16-17 as well lol I started getting the gel though :) and I think it lasts longer then the acrylics to be honest :) but as for getting your nails done dont stop its relaxing and awesome and just ahhhh :)
