acrylic nails

I've heard its not good to get your nails done while pregnant because of something in the acrylic. Is this true?

The fumes are the biggest concern....if you do try to wear a mask and take many breaks to get some fresh air

Besides fumes being a factor anything that is absorbed into your skin or nails gets into your system.

O I wouldn't worry too much. I am a nail tech been one for 5 years n I wear a mask when at work when I'm pregnant. My daughter is.fine. n I'm sure my son will be too. I've worn fake nails my whole pregnancy x 2. A lot of woman do. Having something absorb thru your nail bed and too the baby....very unlikely. Dying your hair is another story because of hair follicles can absorb.
But I did both Nails n dyed my hair and so have millions of other woman. Its a person.al choice. You want to feel pretty during pregnancy too...:)
