In brief: Depends

Any procedures undertaken on a pregnant woman are done after a careful weighing of the risks versus the benefits.
Often a minor procedure can be done, with the input of your obstetrician, without any significant risk to the fetus. But sometimes not. And a fractured nose can usually wait to be fixed after the pregnancy, even though the doctor will have to re-break the bones while you're asleep.

In brief: Preg anest

The answer depends on the trimester or duration of the pregnancy to this point.
It would be safest in the 2nd or 3rd trimester, when organ development has already occurred.
