It should be fine. The only concern really about getting tattoo's during pregnancy is that your skin will stretch so don't do it while your pregnant for that reason. But your early enough along that when you loose your pregnancy weight it shouldn't really effect it. Also, It shouldn't harm the baby.

Don't stress! It will not cause ink poisining or anything else like that. The one reason I heard it is not okay is because it can cause some women a great deal of pain and it can stress out the baby.  I would say you are totally fine!!!

It's totally fine! I was going out drinking practically every other night...and it was actually the morning after we had just gone out and gotten slightly drunk that I got my BFP! I was soo worried but my doctor reassured me that the baby does not receive anything through your blood until they are at least 6 weeks. And usually women find out their pregnant at 5 weeks, so you're fine! My baby boy is due any day now and he's as healthy as can be!

I just had my 3rd baby 11 days ago and he was a surprise BFP. I got a tattoo in memory of a previous m/c 2wks prior to getting my BFP and he was an 8lbs 30z healthy little man :) I'm sure it will be fine.

I wouldn't stress to much. They tell you not to get tattoos while pregnant because there is a possibility of lead being in the ink. My ex sister in Law owns a tat shop her now husband is an artist. She was getting work done on her leg when she found out she was pregnant also. She had a beautiful little boy.  

I was in the process of getting my back tattoo when I found out I was pregnant last year.

Just make sure that you keep it clean and it heals properly.  No touch ups until after baby is born.

You're fine,  my sister did the same thing, she got a tat and then found out she was preggo weeks later. Her OB said there was no reason to worry.

Oh you're fine! Don't worry yourself. I painted 7 rooms in my house and dyed my hair when I was pregnant. I was careful, of course. I'm not trying to say I was careless, just that certain things aren't as worrisome as others make them seem. And my daughter is incredibly intelligent and social. Congrats on your little bean!
