From what i've read online, there has not been enough research done to say whether tanning beds are safe during pregnancy. Many doctors/midwives suggest avoiding it for the first trimester, while others suggest avoiding it for the entire pregnancy.
Your best bet is to talk to your doctor/midwife about this before you go for your next session.
(You are aware of the dangers of tanning for YOU though, right? ie, sunburn, premature aging, skin cancer ...)
