Is it me or is it warm in here?
Your body temperature is naturally higher during pregnancy due to hormones and an increase in metabolism, and if you’re pregnant during a hot spell it can get pretty uncomfortable.
Here are a few ways to stay cool:
Wear loose, breathable clothing. If it’s very sunny, you’ll actually be cooler with loose sleeves and long trousers than vests and shorts as you’ll be protected from the sun.
Keep well hydrated with plenty of water.
Don’t eat too much salt as it increases fluid retention and will make you puffy.
Assuming you can’t just disappear to a shady swimming pool on warm days, run your wrists under the cold tap and invest in a handheld fan to help cool yourself down.
Stick your feet in a bucket of tepid water in the evenings or take yourself off to a nice, dark, air-conditioned cinema for a few hours.
Required. Do not embed images in the body
