I recognize that planning ahead has never been my strong suit. I’ve had four children and each one was born in the middle of July. To make it even more difficult, with my last baby, my husband and I planned to move into a new new home just weeks before the expected birth. I had really been suffering through the hot and sticky weather. The air conditioner in our first new home was not the best, and I tried a lot of ways to get some relief! We kept ceiling fans operating and wherever I sat, a box fan was usually pointed right at me. I tried long cooling showers and drank ice water, but the worst of it was that at night. Sleepy as I was, I would finally just try sleeping on the floor because it was a few degrees cooler than the bed. Moving our family when I was expecting was a killer. Once we were settled in the new house, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The air conditioner in our new home was so wonderful that I never wanted to go anywhere else. I could sleep comfortably in my bed again, which every pregnant girl deserves to do. My recommendation is that pregnant women, or anyone who is struggling to get a good night’s rest because of the heat, should get in contact with their Heating and A/C provider and have a cooling system installed. Although, not everybody can just move to a new new home, but a good HVAC professional can improve your comfort with the installation of an air conditioner.
