Being pregnant was particularly horrible, then i wasn’t quite prepared for all the fluctuations our body would go through! Yes, I think I would get bigger, have swollen ankles and maybe some cravings.
I wasn’t prepared for the spike in our body temperature, but apparently you run hotter while pregnant; Who knew? I also used to live up north.
I didn’t consider the FL summers and how sizzling they are. If I would have thought of it, I would have timed our pregnancy better. Instead I managed to get pregnant in Springtime and was crucial for the summer, however my body temperature spiked and I was super hot. My area of Cocoa FL gets temperatures in the 100s. Typically I can handle that. I just wear a swimsuit and shorts all the time; Being pregnant meant it was just too sizzling for me. I would get lightheaded, nauseous and sweat through everything. Also our swim tops didn’t fit me. It was horrible. I realized that I had to stay indoors, no direct sun and periodically I couldn’t even kneel in the shade. I spent our whole Summer inside with the AC blasting. I wasn’t too satisfied about it. I also disattachd our comforter since our hubby didn’t want to lower the thermostat. I had a bedsheet and was in our underwear and I was still perspiring buckets. I didn’t realize how long summers last in Cocoa FL too. I basically was in 90 degree heat our entire 9 month pregnancy. I Will neve make that mistake again. Next time I want to be crucial in the wintertime.
