Self-Tanner

I was just wondering if any of you knew anything about the safety of self-tanners. I am 35 weeks pregnant and just started using the Jergens Natural Glow lotion on my arms and legs. I know that I am so far a long that it should not harm the baby in any way but I wanted to make sure.
Thanks!

Re: Self-Tanner

There is no research on what effects could be in the first trimester but the active ingrediant in tanner is DHA which is a natural ingrediant so I would think its perfectly fine and probably much better than going to a tanning bed. But there are doctors who prefer you not use it at all. I guess its up to you.
Anyone else?
