Just use a tanning lotion out of a bottle. Spray tans are dangerous because Drs don't know what inhaling the tanning solution will do to baby and tanning beds are extremely dangerous in pregnancy.

Just remember chemicals you put on your skin does get absorbed and will he passed to baby. Like salicylic acid in acne creams and washes are quite dangerous to use while pregnant cause it heightens the chances of birth defects. As for tanning lotions I don't know it be best to do some research on it.

Don't do it for long periods of time. And use a high spf Sun cream. Also drink plenty of water and stay very hydrated. About half hour at a time is plenty and then rest in the shade for a while.
You can burn a lot easier during pregnancy and also are more prone to Sun stroke
