Hi, I am in my first trimester and I am always extremely careful about disclosing nails. However, as I was getting out of the shower I happened to step on one while barefoot. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks!


Although you should try to be careful not to step on nails, R’ Chaim Kanievsky shlit”a said that if you did,step on them by mistake, you should not worry, as it doesn’t effect if it was done by mistake.


Told to Horav Y. Cahen by R’ Chaim, who told it to me.
