I have several friends that just announced that they’re pregnant! And my own sister is due with my niece in three weeks- so I’m really excited all around. However, the days are getting hotter and longer, and anyone who has been pregnant can tell you that the summer heat can sometimes be unbearable. If you’ve recently found out that you are expecting, first of all, congratulations! Second of all, read this article by Holly at Simplify Create Inspire for tips on surviving a summer pregnancy. It could seriously save your life:
-Get comfortable- get you some breathable, stretchy, cotton clothes
-Find a way to cool down- bump up the AC, turn on the fans, take a cold shower, or take a dip in a pool
-Eat some frozen desserts- popsicles, icecream, and froyo is going to be your best friend
-Keep up your fluids- always keep a bottle of cold water with you
-Get comfy at bedtime- crank up the AC, sleep in comfy Pjs, and surround yourself with fluffy pillows. A good body pillow can be a lifesaver.
