    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    NEED ANSWER ASAP!!
    Is it safe to have Gel nails put on during your 1st trimester?

    Acrylic are created with chemicals, but Gel are not and are told to be not as damaging to your natural nails.

    My daughter wants these done for an upcoming event, but we don't want to harm the baby.
    Thank you for any help!

    Yes, it's safe to have your nails done. There may be an issue with the smells in the salon, especially if one suffers from morning sickness.
