As we enter Memorial Day weekend, and start packing our beach bags for a Summer by the shoer, take this quiz to test your knowledge about how the sun's rays can help and hurt a mother-to-be.

Test Your Pregnancy Sun Exposure Knowledge

It's a good thing I'm not pregnant - I only got 2/5 correct. Fail. The one thing I read when I was expecting that startled me was that the sun can also cause dark spots across your face when you're pregnant, and those spots (melasma? cannot remember) tend to not fade. I don't know if that's true or not, but worth mentioning!

Even though sunless tanners are considered safe, I still didn't even go near them when I was pregnant. Not something I want seeping into my skin!
