The Pregnant Gal's Guide to Weathering the Weather

Reasonable Room Temps

You're probably perfectly comfortable in the 62 to 65° range. The rest of the family might prefer 68° or higher. Compromise. Wear a loosely fitting tank top and hand out sweatshirts for the rest of the group. You could always try to convince them this "isn't going to last forever..."

Humidify and Hydrate

Drink plenty of water. We know that you can only drink so much but, staying hydrated lessens the possibility of headaches, preterm labor, encourages an ample supply of amniotic fluid and combats dry skin.

Keep your air moist, too. Adequate humidity combats dry skin and helps prevent pregnancy stuffiness.

We'd love to see your tips in the comments. What helps you stay comfortable during icy winter days?
