Piercings while pregnant?

Hi Ladies , im 22weeks now and my Birthday is coming up soon "next month" lol .. And on my birthday i would usually go out with my best friend but cant this year because im with child .. So i was thinking of getting a piercing instead!.. My question is has anyone been pregnant and had good results ? Is it really necessary to wait until you have the baby?

It's best to wait. Piercings can introduce infection to the body and that's not good when you're pregnant! Get it done after x

Majority of piercers will not pierce you while you are pregnant, the same goes with tattoos. Because there is such a high risk of infection when getting a piercing, especially in pregnant women because your immune system is lowered due to baby, it's best to wait until after you've had the baby and had time to recover.

What do you wanna get pierced? I know some people won't pierce a pregnant woman but I think it depends on what you are getting pierced

Majority will not Pierce a pregnant person. It puts stress on your body and affects the baby.
Can also cause a easy quick infection and will harm Baby as well.
I wanted my nose done while I was pregnant and they told me no even the dr and this is what I was told

Idk.... best to ask your Dr.

My sister was 35 weeks pregnant when she got a tattoo,  a big one at that. The tattoo artist knew she was pregnant and didn't say anything.  Of course she checked with her Dr first. She baby is now 7 almost 8 months, she's fat + healthy and no labor, birth, for pregnancy complactions.  Professional is the key. Don't do it outside of a professional place. Keep area clean. Following exact instructions given.  And again ask your Dr first.
