I’m only 7 weeks and I got my nails done last night without really thinking about it- I felt so guilty and worried the whole time and tried to cover my face as much as possible. They turned on a little fan, the door was open and most of the time I was the only one in there. I don’t get any polish on them just buffed. Is this bad for the baby I know these are important developmental times. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hey! Im sure that you are fine. Ive actually heard that getting your nails done doesn't hurt anything or effect your pregnancy. In fact, some pregnany women get their nails done all the time! I just got my toes done last week. You will be fine. I mean...i think the only way it would harm your pregnancy is if you took a nail polish bottle or remover and really inhaled it on purpose. Other than that, youll be just fine

sunshine - don't worry about it - i get mine done all the time and my nail lady actually worked throughout both her pregnancies and her kids are just great... don't worry - most places have pretty good ventilation ...

I miss getting my nails done. My doctor recommended going without for the nine months. He said it is not the chemicals, but that you have a higher chance of getting infection that could enter your bloodstream. I never have had an infection before from acrylics, but I just figured I'd avoid the risk. So I don't think you have anything to worry about!
