Is it bad to go tanning when you are pregnant?

your responce from most ppl will probably be yes,but i think if you go for not long at a time and not to often it should be ok,just dont let yourself get too hot!

I heard that tanning in a bed while prgnant is bad for you the bigger you get. It also increases stretch marks.

ive been told its bad and you should never do it no matter how far along you are. besides i wouldnt worry how you look but how healty your baby is. they say not to use the self tanning stuff either cause of the chemicals that go into your skin. you body absorbs everything you put on it.

there is always that risk of causing damage to your baby...... is having a tan really worth risking your baby's health???? try spray tan, looks really nice and is harmless to a fetus.

I have heard that tanning can cause your body temp to become elevated & that is why it can be risky. Same reason they tell you not to enjoy hot tubs & saunas

I was a frequent visiter of tanning salons before I was pregnant. Now I use the stand up beds that spray a tan on you. It's not as nice as the real thing but it works. (Hey I am from Minnesota so we don't get many chances to get a tan.) It's only supose to go through the first three layers of skin so it's pretty safe.
