There are so many conflicting theories about hair dye out there it is hard to know what to believe... but there is no actual medical research that says hair dye can damage your unborn baby. A lot of hairdressers wont use a full head colour on your hair purely because your hair is weakened in pregnancy and a full head colour could make it fall out a bit! Plus they do recommend that you don't do anything in the first 3 months.
I had my hair highlighted when I was 14 weeks pregnant and had a full head colour done last week (at 32 weeks pregnant) and its been fine. The only thing is, the colour may come out a slightly different shade than you may expect - mine goes a lot lighter than normal, but this is down to your hormones!
