I need a lot of AC now that I am pregnant

Your body temperature significantly increases when you are pregnant.

You just feel hotter and are more susceptible to heat.

In the first trimester the early summer heat made me feel a bit nauseous. I knew as long as I used my gym’s fan for cooling, I would be okay. I could still walk around outside in the heat and I didn’t change the AC settings in my house. The second trimester made me feel even hotter. My shed that serves as my gym needed air conditioning. I couldn’t stand to work out with a fan anymore. I purchased a window air conditioner and that really helped things out. I then removed my bedroom comforter so that I didn’t need to change the house air conditioner setting. I was then at the right temperature. Walking around outside was tough, but I did take AC breaks and that was fine. Now I am in the last trimester. I am a sweaty beast. Summer is just about over and I am still too hot. I can’t work out with the window AC anymore. It just isn’t powerful enough. I have to stay inside right underneath an air vent when I do anything. I also am down to just a bedsheet at night. I use my overhead fan and I have lowered the thermostat a few degrees. My poor husband wears pants and socks in the house at all times. I can’t even poke my nose outside either. The temperatures are still in the 80s and that is too warm for me. I can’t be away from AC even for a moment.
