Warm feeling

Overheated? It's not just because you're getting bigger or because the weather is warm. During pregnancy, your metabolism — the rate at which your body expends energy at rest — speeds up. And you're probably perspiring more as a result of needing to lose all the heat your baby is making. This can leave you feeling too warm, even in winter.

■ Prevention and self-care for feeling warm

It's important to avoid getting overheated while you're pregnant. Follow these tips to keep cool:

• Drink plenty of water and other fluids. Carry a water bottle with you.

• Dress lightly in breathable fabrics such as cotton.

• Avoid exercising outside in the warmest part of the day. Take a walk before breakfast or after dinner, or go to a fitness center.

• Stay out of the sun as much as possible.

• Go for a swim, or take a tepid or cool shower or bath.

• When the temperature is over 90 F, stay in air-conditioned environments as much as possible.
