If you are or have ever been pregnant, then you know ordinary tasks can become ridiculously difficult. You long for the days of falling asleep on your stomach, and tying your shoes can feel like an Olympic sport. For me, it was a challenge to feel pretty and confident when my stomach was the size of a watermelon. That's why I relished in the rare opportunity to pamper myself during pregnancy. But you might be wondering how to paint your toenails when pregnant because, you know, physics. As it turns out, it can be done — albeit carefully.
On a side note, any time you're pondering coming in contact with chemical products, it's a good idea to check with your doctor about possible health concerns. As Dr. Richard H. Schwartz told Parents, "it's unlikely that brief exposure from polishing your nails will pose a risk to your baby or you." If you want to take additional precautions during your DIY pedicure, the medical experts at the Baby Center recommended that pregnant women should use acetone-free nail polish remover. Now that you've got the heath and safety part out of the way, it's on to the adventure that is painting your toenails while pregnant.
