  • popsicles and watermelon. I could eat a whole watermelon all by myself..lol..air conditioning is a must cause we tend to swell alot more in the summer time. I had a late August baby, so I will never forget it

  • Ice water! I swear I would drink a gallon a day before and after I had my 4th of July baby.

  • Yep defiantly air conditioning. I had two august babies and a november baby. I live in east texas. I doubt I would have had children back in the day lol cold baths once when the air wasn't working. Hubby got it fixed so quick.

  • Find a pool! It's awesome at the end of pregnancy for that belly to be weightless for a little while and a dip in a pool will keep you cooled off for a while after you get out. Cool showers work too. Drink lots of water.
