Camping while pregnant; would you do it?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm only 16 weeks and I love to go camping with my husband but I'm not sure that we will be able to this year because I'm pregnant (his words, not mine)

the only thing that would hold me back is the heat this year. Where i live it's been 100+ for several days. even night time in mid 90's


so would you go camping while pregnant (lol I WOULD bring an air mattress this time around though, oh my goodness, my back is killing me!)

if it's really hot then no I would not.  You are not supposed to overheat your body.

I would and did. Stay hydrated, wear a hat, stay in the shade and rest before you get tired and you should be fine. If you decide to go I hope you have a good time :)

I went camping when I was pregnant last summer. I had a blast.
