I am about 27 weeks pregnant right now and I am totally enjoying my summertime pregnancy. I know everyone has different experiences but for me, being pregnant in the summer is ideal and lucky for me, both of my pregnancies have been very similar timing.
I have been rocking the popping bump on the beach with my bikini and I am glad that I can just let it all hang out. We have been splashing, soaking and staying as cool as we can, and resting inside on days that are a little too hot. (I am grateful for my central air too.)
I also love that we can easily pop out for walks throughout the day and in the evenings. I always tend to be a little more active in the summer. I am definitely keeping my calorie intake up as we have an ice cream shop a five minute walk from the house, so its good motivation to go for a stroll :)
I would say mentally pregnancy is a little straining on me at times and I feel more anxiety in situations that I normally don't experience it. I recently cancelled a little two day trip that I was going to take with Luke because the simple thoughts of not sleeping in my own bed and worrying about Luke's schedule getting messed up, caused me to seek the comforts of my own home. So, I don't think I will be going to far from home this summer unless I have Ty by my side.
All in all, me and my summer bump are doing great and just taking it one day at a time.
I would love to know what your favourite parts of pregnancy are and what you struggle with?
