In brief: See below

During the first trimester there are many things that can go wrong with the pregnancy.
There is a small amount of evidence that both nitrous oxide and benzodiazepines are bad for the development of the pregnancy during this stage. Talk to your anesthesiologist before the operation and make sure that they know you are pregnant before the operation so they can take precautions.
