    this is my third baby youd think id know this answer ,

    i live in the uk so not very hot , just be nice to bathe in the garden today watching the children in the paddling pool, so i was just wondering can i sunbathe? or should i sit in shade? or just cover my bump and keep well hydrated, burning is not an issue as im olive skinned and go black in the sun , i could do with getting rid ov this pregnancy pasty skin :wacko:

    thanks ladies :flower:

    I think as long as your sensible, and don't stay out in it too long, keep drinking loads, and going to the shade if you get too hot then you should be ok.

    I do. I just drink loads of ice water & get in the shade/ pool if I seem too hot.

    Yes, just wear suncream cos your skin is far more sensitive during pregnancy X

    Definitely be careful with the sunscreen! It was lovely weather here yesterday and I have slightly burned shoulders which never ever happens to me. The sun never usually bothers me at all (although I don't really tan either) so it just shows how much more sensitive your skin is when you're pregnant. My son was of course covered in factor 50 but I forgot all about myself! x
