Nipple piercing and pregnant?

Melody • Momma to a baby in heaven 👼🏼

I got my nipples pierced not even a year ago! I recently found out I’m expecting. Do I need to take my nipple rings out? Anyone had there nipples pierced and kept them in? YES I know they are a choking hazard while breastfeeding feeding so I obviously know I have to take them out for that. But can I keep them in until than?
