Lasers should not be used during pregnancy. Period. The fetus should not be exposed to any elective risk, whether theoretical or realized. Hair removal during pregnancy should be limited to waxing and threading.
Laser Hair Removal During Pregnancy
There is no specific research stating that it is unsafe to receive laser hair removal treatments while pregnant. It is advisable to refrain from receiving these treatments during pregnancy due to the lack of knowledge of the effects it may have on the fetus. If you do choose to proceed with the treatments then it is advised to avoid the abdomen as well as the breasts if you will be breast feeding. Always consult with your health care provider before making these decisions.

LHR and pregnancy
Unfortunately, the only thing I would recommend would be shaving during the pregnancy. Although we don't know what the affect of Laser is on the fetus, Laser Hair Removal should wait until after delivery.
