yeah I wouldnt' worry about it.. How far along are you now??? I know i'm so white and I want to tan.. I'm gona ask my Dr. About the fake tan lotion and see if I should use that..(i'm desperate)lol.. I"m 21-22 weeks pregnant.. When I found out I was about 4 weeks to but that really means the baby is only 2 weeks or your concieved 2 weeks ago.. Cause they go by the date of your last period so it adds about 2 weeks on from the time you concieve... So I think your safe.. Good luck
