Can I tan while Pregnant?

Tanning beds? They are so relaxing. I do the at home tan sometimes. Anyone else go to the tanning bed? or do the spray tans? I have read where it is not harmful but I have not gone to the beds since I have been preg.

  • I don't think you are supposed to because it can increase your body temperature. I used the Aveeno body lotion that has the color tint in it. It works great and gives me that subtle glow. It is kind of pricey though.

  • I don't think it should matter if it's the "au natural" way. Just basking in the sunlight at the beach, or the backyard. Just make sure you're not feeling overheated.
    However, I wouldn't go in a tanning bed. It just reminds me of an oven for the little one. It'd freak me out a little bit.

    I would ask your doctor though!
