During the summer months, people usually leave the cities to go on vacation , this will provide a calmer climate free of crowds and haste that will suit us very well, especially if we are in the last months of pregnancy and need more peace and tranquility from normal . In summer it is easier to show off pregnancy and we can save more money on maternity clothes . A simple wide dress will do the desired function, and we will not notice the heat so much.
However, in winter we must invest more capital in coats and clothing during pregnancy that we may never use again . In addition, aesthetically, a wide dress in summer will look better our pregnancy than a pile of clothes on top of the other to cover our belly well in winter.
DISADVANTAGES OF BEING PREGNANT DURING THE SUMMER AND HOW TO HANDLE IT BETTER
During the hot months we tend to lower our tension , especially during pregnancy, so it is likely that our feet swell more and we find ourselves slightly tired. As it is a few months of rest and, we may even have vacations, it will be completely normal for us to spend more time resting or taking a nap .
We must, for this same reason, constantly hydrate ourselves, since if we lower our blood pressure and we do not drink enough water, this can damage our health and that of our baby. Fruit and vegetables are essential for our hydration and we will not gain weight, since they are very healthy and light foods . Therefore, we will avoid copious meals which will cost us much more to digest due to the heat. The weight of the belly can be somewhat uncomfortable in recent months, so bathing in a beach or pool will help us to relieve the weight on our back and ankles .
Practicing exercises in the water is a very good idea, because it will also help you get rid of the heat while lightening your body. If you decide to do exercises in the pool, make sure you are doing the appropriate ones for your month of pregnancy and do not overdo it in terms of quantity, as this can be harmful .
It may be that, due to the hormonal changes that your body is undergoing during pregnancy and the sun’s rays, spots or darkenings appear on your skin. Therefore, you should apply sun protection to your face and body every time you go out and always apply moisturizer after each shower .
Also in summer we have the presence of more insects than during the rest of the year, for this same reason we must be careful not to suffer a bee or mosquito sting , as they could damage our body. The same in the sea , it depends on the area in which we live, we will find jellyfish that could also sting us. This does not mean that we cannot enjoy the beach or open spaces, we simply have to be more cautious and go to a medical center in case one of these animals bites us .
Finally, we will always carry a bottle of water in our bag along with a fan. The most important thing is that we are prepared at all times to protect ourselves from the heat, whether outdoors or in an indoor room. We will try to avoid areas where many people gather or it is very hot , such as busy streets, public transport at rush hour or shopping centers on designated days.
