With the mid-point of the summer season blazing forth, heat waves such as that experienced by the New York area last week are not out of sight yet. While uncomfortable for most, brutally high temperatures and humidity can be especially exhausting - and dangerous - for the expectant mom, whose body temperature is already a little bit higher than normal and who is at higher risk for dehydration due to morning sickness and frequent bathroom pit stops.
While a few hot days might not seem like a big deal, it can have serious consequences if you're not careful. ABC News points out that around 3,000 Americans died between 2006 and 2010 from heat-related illness. As always, check on your elderly neighbors and grandparents - it's not only a good deed, but a good way to stay in the AC.
