Sorry I know I must sound so paranoid but we were stuck in a traffic jam earlier for over an hour with poor air con and no water to hand. It was absolutely boiling (it's 33 degrees today).
Luckily we passed a service station shortly after and I bought some water and feeling loads better but now I'm really panicking I've done some damage! I keep reading getting overheated for just 10 mins can cause birth defects so now I'm just really anxious Can anyone talk me down?! Thank you
don't worry about it love people in hotter countries where its 40 degrees plus sometimes don't have access to fans because of no electricity etc it was only 10 mins I am sure everything will be okay and you have cooled yourself dont now try not to o
Worry just stay hydrated xx
Try not to worry! I live in a country where the temperature regularly exceeds 40C and having a perfectly healthy pregnancy.
Activities like saunas/steam rooms/jacuzzis etc could cause damage through overheating as your internal body temperature increases.
Just make sure you always have water to hand from now on, and maybe a portable battery powered fan for emergencies!
