Well I don't think you're suppose to get in a hot tub while you're pregnant, so i'm guessing the heat is bad for your baby.

I don't think that it would be bad as long as you didn't let your body heat get to high..If you drink lots of water and don't get a sun burn...(sun burn are awful while you pregnant Evil or Very Mad Embarassed

i belive it would be okay...

Tanning in a tanning booth isnt safe.. But I am 38 1/2 weeks preg and ive tanned outside sometimes (in fact im going to in a few minutes) you just have to be careful, bring water and drink it frequently, and make sure u take breaks and get out of the sun, and dont get over heated at all. I normally cover my stomach and when I start to feel warm I put a wet cold wash cloth on my belly to keep it cooler then the rest of me~
