  • Try a cool shower, drink some ice water, have a popsicle. Go barefoot! The only concern I'd have is if there's a lot of dust on the fan blades and if you have allergies. Otherwise, just relax and fan away!

    Fans don't cool the air, by the way, anon 7:18, they just make you feel cool by rushing the air over your skin faster which evaporates the sweat.

  • I think whatever makes you not feel hot during pregnancy is great.... fan it up! Unless you are drenched with sweat and having freezer temp air fanning you... I wouldn't worry. Good luck momma!
