im not sure but i know you need to avoid certain oils or something and stay away from pedicures (especially later on) cause certain pressure points are supose to cause contractions

but you should try to avoid the fumes, i think they can be harmful, i know they cause me to gag everytime i pass a nail place and my throut startes to close up

be sure to deffinantly tell the person that you are pregnant, you dont want to risk anything, and they *should* know what to avoid

Hey! Well I don't know the correct answer because I'm sure the fumes could be harmful, but.. my boyfriends mom and another family friend both own nail salons and worked everyday of their pregnancies with no problems at all. Their children came out healthy as can be. And I also got regular pedicures and manicures while I was pregnant and my little one is just perfect. So I would say go ahead and pamper yourself a little, you deserve it!

The fumes can be harmful but you also have to beware of the fact that you could get a nail infection. You always run that risk when getting your nails done. The chances of something happening are slim to none. I got my nails done throught my whole pregnancy.

I got mine done during my pregnancy. now if i had to go every week then i wouldn't have but every 2-3 weeks is fine i think, an hour for every 14-21 day isnt' that much fumes.
