Do any of you pregnant ladies tan outside, if so how long? And what do you use?

Yep. We bought a small pool from walmart, Addy plays while I lay, and I play too. hehe
We're outside for probably 2 to 3 hours, she's covered in sunblock and I use Banana Boats spf 4 oil.

I used Hawaiian Tropic Dark Tanning Oils. But I would only be in the sun for about an hour. But have you ever used indoor tanning lotion before? I never have, and I know it doesn't have any sunscreen or skin protection in it, but neither does my Hawaiian Tropic Oil and I don't burn. I'm wondering if it would matter if I used indoor tanning lotion. Considering it doesn't say not to, just warns that it doesn't contain any sunscreen, etc.

I don't know, I've never been a huge tanning bedder and the one time I used tanning bed lotion in the bed I apparently was allergic to it. But I have no idea if you can you indoor tanning products outside.

I heard it's harder to tan your stomach than it is the rest of your body. And when you're pregnant you have a higher chance of getting sunburned.

Yeah, I learned that the hard way. Last year I was in Hawaii, it was my 2nd day there and I went to the beach, didn't use ANY lotion or oil and burned SO bad. I was sunburned for about 3 or 4 days then the peeling process came. I seriously looked like a chocolate cow, i sucked. The only part of my body that didn't burn so bad is my tummy, just got a little pink then went back to white. I'm kinda dreading summer this year cause I'm in Nevada..guess I'll be somewhat hibernating lol, if my son lets me. lol

Yeah, I had to rub Aloe Vera on me like 50 times a day and everywhere we went I took the bottle with me. When I went out in public, people just stared. I was with my sisters family, who all lived there for at least a year before I got there, so they were all pretty much black and made me look like a really ghostly white lol.
