Tips For Surviving a Summer Pregnancy

July 16, 2010  |  

Some things you can plan for and others…let’s just say no one wants to be pregnant in 100 degree heat. Moms-to-be can get extra hot (and we’re not talking Hot) due to extra blood flow causing higher-than-normal body temperatures. Add on 10, 20, 30 pounds and you’ve got a hot-and-bothered lady. Besides staying in a cool place, there are some tips–some that I’ve used myself–that women with child can use to stay cool.

Remove Your Bling – Fingers are one of the first places a mama-to-be swells and heat doesn’t help matters. At the first signs of swelling, remove your rings so they don’t have to be cut off. Yes, this happens.
Swing Ya Rag – You know the washcloth that your hubby or bro carries everywhere on sweltering days? Yeah, you’ll need one for yourself. Placing a cool, damp washcloth on the neck or forehead will help bring the body temperature down and reduce sweating.
