Is it safe to go to school to be a nail technician while pregnant?

I haven't had a chance to sit down and talk with my doctor yet, but I wanna know if anyone can relate to this post.
I was planning on going to school to be a nail technician but found out I am pregnant, I am now almost 11 weeks and am wondering if it will still be safe to go to school if I wear a mask for the fumes or something? Has anyone talked to their doctor about this recently?

Well I got my nails one the whole tome I was pregnant, I would sit by the window and wear a mask, I'm sure if u wore a mask and were in a well ventilated area it wouldn't matter at all! Do what u feel comfortable with if your a
Having a hard time breathing to fumes are really strong baby feels that too! And wearing gloves can be a good idea to avoid touching chemicals directly

I wouldn't think it would be an issue seeing how girls get their nails done while pregnant.. But then again that's only once or twice a month ur around the chemicals.. So I would def where a mask... But if ur taking the whole cos class.. Hair too.. Def wait bc the bleaches are not good for u let alone ur baby

Call the school and ask them. I'm sure it has come up before.

maybe after your first trimester it will be a better idea after you past the MC period

Thanks everyone I asked my dr in Monday and she cleared it as safe but she told me if I'm worried just to wear gloves and a mask but she said its more unhealthy to wear them pregnant than to do them.
