Tanning while pregnant
I have a friend who is 16 weeks along and still tans. We go to the same OB and I was told not too tan at all. My friend said she told her it was ok. What do you ladies think? I'd rather be safe than sorry

I think as long as her core temp doesn't get too high it should be fine. Some Obs are more conservative than others.

I called my OB and she confirmed that tanning is a big fat NO:) I think my friend was mad that I asked but I knew she was lying. I guess some people are more vain than others. It's on her if her baby has issues from tanning. Thanks ladies:)

I agree..not something I would do either.

People will justify the things they want to do.  You did the right thing going with your Dr.'s advice.  Congrats on your pregnancy!

When you tan in a tanning bed,  you continue to cook hours after you get out, it is so NOT GOOD to tan while pregnant,  I cannot believe she is doing that. I had a friend who told me a story about a girl who was going to different beds a day to tan for prom and she ended up cooking her Insides and died from it.  True or not IDK, 100%.  Tanning while pregnant,  makes me sad....

I reamed my friend a new one and told her that I was just concerned for her little peanut:) I honestly don't know what she was thinking!
