It could be bad but depending on how early you are in your pregnancy I dont think it should harm the baby! If you are really concerned about it then I would call your obgyn/midwife and ask what their oppinion is about it. Best of Luck and let us know what you find out.

It won't harm the baby but during pregnancy your skin is more sensitive to the sun.  Which means you will burn more easily.  Getting burned increases YOUR chances for skin cancer.  Just make sure to lather up on the sun screen.
