The best tip I have is to carry a battery powered fan in my handbag when out and about in the summer months. Its small & compact and great when you need a quick cool down!

Dip your feet or pulse points (wrists/inner elbows) in cool water to help cool you down. I’d spend weeks running my wrists under the taps at work!! That and definitely invest in a fan. It’s SO worth it in the middle of the night!

Stay hydrated, drink as much water as possible! & carry spare clothes with you (leggings etc) just incase you get too hot and need to change. But the main one being – stay hydrated, and if you cant face drinking lots due to sickness, suck on ice cubes this helped me so much along with ice lollies.

Carry a water spray everywhere! If you have a couple, you can rotate them in the fridge so there is always one at hand. I found 2 large sprays for £1 in Poundland last week!

Get one of those cooling sprays, also aloe Vera gel for swollen ankles and feet, plus I echo soaking pulse points in cool water. Stay indoors and don’t do too much!

Last summer I resorted to sitting in the paddling pool 😂 my daughter enjoyed splashing around whilst I cooled my swollen ankles and attempted to cool down!

I had really itchy skin in the summer so get moisturiser in the fridge. Felt utterly amazing to put it all over my skin! Kept the suncream in their too

I was addicted to Ice Lollies and could eat a packet in a row, but obviosuly not the heallthiest choice right? Freeze fruit purée and snack on that instead – also good practise on your purée skills for when the baby arrives!

Wearing nothing but pants…at home obviously!!

Convince everyone you really need a break and head for a spa session that has air-con. For the baby you know.
