Wear Loose Clothes
While you won’t be able to relax with a traditional cocktail during your pregnancy, you can certainly enjoy yourself and keep cool on a hot summer day with a ‘mocktail’ that’s actually quite healthy for you. There are countless recipes available online, but for a quick and easy recipe, try Parents Magazine’s recommendation: “Sip a cold “mocktail,” like this Pina Colada Smoothie: Combine six ounces frozen coconut yogurt, half a frozen banana, half of a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple, and one cup of milk; blend until smooth,” writes Deirdre Byrne. Of course, it’s also necessary to stay hydrated throughout the day with plenty of cool water. Don’t hesitate to reach for sports drinks with electrolytes if you need to replace lost salt and retain fluid after exerting yourself.
