Pregnancy + Summer Tips to fully enjoy the season ft. Figure8 Maternity

I've traversed through summer with all my pregnancies but with little man I will be my MOST pregnant. Now I will say I'm not a "summer lover" (give me crisp and cool Autumn every time!) but since I have no choice I want to make the best of this fleeting season (Summer and my last, third trimester of pregnancy). Here are my favorite tips to embracing the hottest time of the year while pregnant. Affiliate links used. A small commission may be received if you purchase an item through my links.

Pregnancy + Summer Tips to fully enjoy the season ft. Figure8 Maternity
Stay hydrated- I'm a water-aholic but I know not many prefer drinking water to anything else. Make sipping that H2O more enjoyable by adding lemon and/or cucumber slices for that spa-like experience. Having a fun tumbler or water bottle helps too!

Dress Comfortably- Maxis are my go to when the sun is out; you get a nice breeze when you walk around and the bump is free to be. This Ingrid + Isabel kimono maxi maternity dress is pure heaven! The material is so light and soft and the sleeves give it that extra oomph, I seriously felt like a beach goddess. But any of the dresses at Figure8 Maternity would be great additions to your wardrobe.

Lotion up- Slather on that sun block! I had two very bad sunburns in my teens and am making sure never to endure that torture again. Apply 15-30 minutes prior to sun exposure or as instructed. I like the high SPF count myself (and for my girls). This also applies to your lips, use a lip balm that has SPF included. Adding a hat is also another stylish layer of sun protection!

Snack seasonably- summer fruits and vegetables are the best at this time of year! Berries, stone fruit, watermelon, carrots, tomatoes and cucumber are great for snacking on the go. Extra points if you get yours from a Farmer's Market.

Kick your heels up- after a day out and about I tend to notice some ankle and feet swelling (oh the joys of pregnancy ;) so reclining and making sure my feet are elevated slightly above my heart brings the swelling down.

Relax- and joy the season! Summer is so fleeting and that may have to do with all the fun activities we all pack into it so don't forget to take some time just to be lazy. Preferably at the beach.

  3. You ARE a beach goddess! Love the fun sleeves =) Keep those feet up. It was a fun pregnancy perk getting light headed and dizzy whenever I got hot. Good thing Florida summers are so mild...

  4. This is my second summer baby, but even later summer. And I'm living in a hotter climate now. It's been between 90-100 degrees for the last three weeks and not letting up. Help me!

  9. These are great tips for pregnancy and staying healthy during it. Love that dress on you. Sunscreen and water are the best things during the summer pregnancy months.

  10. My number one tip to being preggo in the summer (besides better pregnancy planning - I kid... sort of), is just float in a pool. That's literally what I did every. single. day. while pregnant with Julia.
    P.S. You look freaking amazing.
