I live at the beach and during beach season I will be in my third trimester. I am wondering if I should avoid the sun or if it's all good. I don't see how a little vitamen d could be bad as long as you make sure not to get too many of those harmful uv rays.

definitely use sunscreen, make sure not to overheat and stay hydrated...

The bad part of tanning is the possibility of raising your body temp. I don't think a little sun would hurt but I am really thinking a little. I know tanning lotions and spray tans are fine.
