My daughter is a June baby, born on the hottest day of the year. Boy! What a summer that was. Ecstatic as I was about being pregnant with my first born, the summer heat hit me pretty bad. I was in my 7th month, sporting a big belly when the heat started. The pregnancy had already thrown my body temperature, weight and hormones out of whack. Entering the kitchen to cook was like a punishment. It didn’t matter how high the air conditioning was; I was just plain simple hot – like all the time.
Now I do understand that actually having a summer baby is good. I could just walk around in a loose dress without any layers to smother me. And when the baby arrived I could leave the house with my little one and get some fresh air. In winter that’s such a problem. We need to keep them protected from the cold all the time. My son was born in January, on the coldest day of winter. Yes! So I’ve dealt with both weather conditions.
So these are a few tips I learnt through my pregnancy journey which helped me stay sane and safe in the hot summer months. Scroll down to read them today and don’t forget to share it with your expectant friend!
