anyone know if it is safe to use tea tree oil on your toenails while pregnant? I heard it is a natural way to treat fungus but not sure if it can be used during pregnancy.

I have never heard of any problems and I know I used it during both pregancies and also found it very helpful with my infant to clear up rashes - even included it in their homemade diaper rash ointment.

Assuming localised external use, yes it is fine.
There are very few oils that are proven to be harmful during pregnancy, and most of those are just harmful fullstop and are unlikely to be on sale to the general public.
