i was wondering the same thing

 

i love tanning ;O) - May 14

ok ive read that the uv rays wont harm your baby but if your body overheats in there it could cause damage.but i think you will get mixed opinions on this .if you do continue to go just go minimum time and not as often as you usually would

It would be better not to. Overheating isn't good for the baby but they have done studies that UV rays can reduce folic acid in your body. A deficiancy in folic acid may cause spinal defects in the baby. As of right now they suspect this. As far as overheating, it would probably be better to sit outside. I burned very easily while I was pregnant.

I hit submit before I was done. Just be careful. Do a google search "tanning while pregnant" I got a lot of info.
