Eat Some Ice Cream!
Here's a delicious way to cool down (and maybe fulfill those cravings) when you're dealing with summer heat waves: Eat a yummy chilled treat! Popsicles, virgin frozen drinks or a trip to local ice cream parlor can provide some (literal) sweet relief when baby is making you a little too hot for comfort. It's a great excuse to have the ladies over for some frozen daiquiris (alcohol for them, none for you)…or just take a spoon to that carton of mint chocolate chip in your freezer. Enjoy your goodies guilt free: the break from the heat is totally worth the extra calories.
