In a tanning bed, the ultraviolet rays enter your body and reflect off of each other (similar to a microwave). Hopefully everything is alright, but I would not continue tanning for the duration of your pregnancy.

Indoor tanning is VERY DANGEROUS at the best of times. The harmful rays damage your skin. Stop the tanning immediately. If you haven't over done the tanning sessions, everything should be ok. NO MORE...

Indoor tanning lotions are designed specifically for use with an ultraviolet light source, which is found in tanning beds. There are several different options available with indoor tanning lotions, including lotions that give a bronzing effect, and lotions that moisturize the skin.

Of course they do! Just research tanning facilities around where you live. Another good place to find them is in the yellow pages, which can also be found online. Try asking some of your friends where they might tan.
