As the summer months quickly approach and the temperatures are expected to soar, think about expectant mothers who will be feeling the heat much more than usual! Because of your tummy, being pregnant can lead to hectic evenings, and finding a comfortable posture can be difficult! When the temperature rises, you can almost always count on a sleepless night. Here are some of our favourite ways to stay cool during pregnancy! We hope they keep you cool and comfortable during the hot summer months. >> Invest in a good fan. Having an electric fan in your bedroom will help you feel fresher and get a better night's sleep. Also, if your workplace doesn't have air conditioning, see if you can bring one with you. Even modest portable fans can help keep you cool on the go. >> Staying hydrated is crucial during pregnancy, but it's even more vital during hot weather. Drink lots of ice water; if you find that boring, add a little sugarless cordial or a drizzle of lemon or lime juice (hey, you might even think it's an iced gin and tonic if you close your eyes and use your imagination!) >> Fill a bowl with ice water and soak your feet! It will also help you relax and relieve swollen ankles. If the weather is nice outside, set up a small paddling pool in the garden, grab a book and relax while your legs and feet cool off! >> Keep a damp flannel in the fridge to place it on your head or neck, and take the opportunity to lie down and relax for five minutes. >> Maintain a relaxed and cool atmosphere by dressing in loose cotton or linen clothing. Avoid wearing tight pants or clothing as they will even make you feel too hot. >> Lack of sleep and being hot and upset can cause tension, so why not book a comfort scan with us at Bump2Baby Scans? While we may not be able to influence the temperature outside, we can almost certainly reassure you with one of our soothing pregnancy scans. >> A growth and presentation analysis, for example, will give you comfort if you are concerned about your baby's typical growth and well-being during the second half of your pregnancy.
