When I paint my nails,  I have the fan on high. Baby is fine. Try not to "smell" it. Painting nails is safe though

If the remover has toluene in it, it's carcinogenic.  I think toluene has been taken out of most polish removers sold in the U.S., but it might still be in some sold in other places, and also I don't know if whatever they replaced it with is any safer.  I missed polishing my nails when pregnant, but really didn't want the possible side effects of the polish remover.
