Does anyone know if we can use self tanners while pregnant?

As far as I know that's okay...it's kinda like lotion right?

I would certainly ask your OB. There are a lot of lotions that contain chemicals that you are not suppose to use during a pregnancy. There are some acne creams (I believe Salicylic Acid, which is in a lot of acne lotions that you can buy of the shelf, is not recommended by a lot of ob's during pregnancy). I've even heard a few ppl mention that their doc didn't even want them using hydrocortisone cream while pregnant, as it hasn't been tested properly during pregnancy. Some of those things depend on your doc though and how careful they personally are. I personally don't know about the self tanner, but I wouldn't use it until I'd checked w/ the doc. It may be one of those things that even if it is okay to use, you may want to wait until you're for through the 1st trimester just to be on the safe side. Ask your OB though.
