After this weekend's little heat wave (80's), I realized I don't know much about being pregnant in the summer - lol :)
Is there anything I need to know other than staying hydrated? I'm good about that, so that's okay.
I took DS to the beach today and hung out in the shade for the most part, but it was very hot traveling to the car & back, to the bathroom etc. I realized I also don't really know what "overheated" means - isn't that silly?!
How the heck do you avoid getting overheated in the summer when just walking and getting places leaves you really hot and sweaty - or am I overthinking that, ha ha? I don't think I could ever leave the house without getting overheated.... Is it just that we need to cool off regularly that is important when you get really hot - I don't want to roast this little turkey!
I also learned that even if you stay in the shade, sunscreen is a must! My shoulders got burned just from the few trips to the bathroom and few minutes I was helping DS in the sand!
I'm sure there are some living in much warmer places, so let's share some cool-down tips!
