Sunny Summer Preggo Style

Over the years, I’ve heard a lot about how it’s not fun being pregnant during the summer months.  In my case I’m living out the third trimester during the hottest months of the year…here in the So Cal foothills we can reach temps above 100 degrees in August and September.  But I have to say it’s not as bad as I thought it would be.  Probably for one because we get a very dry heat out near the desert…humidity is low, so it’s not crazy sweaty like it would be where I grew in South Florida.  Also, I’m fortunate to have a swimming pool in my backyard, and swimming (or more like floating) is one thing I can still do at this stage in the game.  Finally, I’ve suffered pretty bad lower back pain during my pregnancy, and I think the heat helps a bit, whereas cold weather would probably make it worse.  The most important thing IMO is how you dress for the heat while pregnant.  I’ve been living in breezy dresses for a few months now.  It’s truly the easiest way to go!
