tanning beds while pregnant...

Im 30 weeks and my doc said tanning beds cant harm the baby that the only worry is getting to hot but she said I will be fine as long as there is a fan on me and im drinking lots of water. Has anyone else used a tanning bed while pregnant?

No, I want to though! Everyone just tells me that they are really bad during pregnancy and can harm the baby so I have stayed away. I'm so white it's sad. Lol

Lol same here and im 30 weeks but not showing all that much just look bigger so I figured tanning would help me feel less crummy about myself. But my doc said the baby is so protected it is fine as long as I dont get too hot but im still hesitant but REALLY wanting to tan lol

If u dnt feel safe using the tanning bed it is safe to spray tan. Ive done that quite a bit!:)
