  • Nope - don't do it even when not pregnant. Very unsafe and unwise.

  • Nope not a good idea, I got spray tan, and I liked it so much, that is all I ever do now! Much better for you!

  • Hmmm... Increase my chances of skin cancer by sitting in a box of UV rays, cooking my skin, pregnant or not just sounds stupid to me.

  • No -- tanning is ridiculous, pregnant or not.
