In preparation of this momentous vacation - you know, the last one you take baby-free - I’ve been shopping for the cutest maternity tankini (nearly impossible), stocking up on SPF 30, and scouring Amazon for Kindle beach reads.
The other night Husby and I were out to dinner with some friends. While the husbands talked shop, the wife and I were busy talking about some of the things I still need to get done before our trip:
H.I.T.: I still need to book an appointment for a spray tan. I can’t find one anywhere. Do you have any suggestions?
Wife: I’m not sure if there are any good places out here...
H.I.T.: I was thinking I could find something in Pretentious Town? Otherwise, I have a gift certificate to a spa that does self tans, but I’m worried it will start to rub off on our new bedding.
Wife's husband, jumps into our conversation: Don’t do a self tan! It will definitely rub off on your sheets.
Husband: Not that I know or anything...I’ve just heard.
Husby: Smooth, man. Smooth.
Any recommendations on a pregnancy-safe self tanner, ladies? I’d prefer something organic, but my doctor says a regular one is fine at this stage too.
Edited to add: For those of you who may not know, there are certain skin products that are unsafe for pregnancy. For example, Vitamin A supplements and derivatives should be avoided as they can cause birth defects. You can learn more about it by consulting your doctor.
