  • I about freaked out when I was told this, but I had a doctor tell me that it was ok to tan until your 3rd trimester. I couldn't believe it! I of course did not, it just doesn't seem right. Be careful with the spray tan, try not to inhale it.maybe talk to your ob about it first. I am not doubting the PP, I am sure she checked into it before she did it.

  • Try not to breathe in a lot of spray if you can avoid it. The fumes aren't the best thing for the baby.

  • I've always heard it's not okay. But I think thats just so you don't get overheated. I have not idea about the spray tan. It's probably ok if it doesn't have a lot of strong fumes or whatever.
