Today was the perfect 85 degree beach day.
It was sunny without a single cloud in the sky.
I was out walking around in my new bikini sporting my baby bump, big and proud.
There’s nothing better you can do at 33 weeks pregnant.
Of course it’s only Memorial Day, so the water in Lake Michigan was only 53 degrees…
Needless to say I only dipped my toes in the water once.
I still got some good sun though.
I was thinking that laying out in the sun wasn’t going to be as fun and relaxing as anticipated because number one– I can’t lay on my belly and number two– I can’t lay on my back without difficulty breathing!
My sister gave me the solution.
Dig a hole.
We were just joking around with the idea at first until I decided it was actually legit.
I lifted up the sheet we were laying on and dug a hole big enough to cradle my belly.
Then I put the sheet over top of the hole and laid with my belly in the hole.
I laid comfortably on my stomach for the first time in 5 months.
Best day ever.
If anyone is pregnant during the summer, I highly recommend showing off your baby bump and catching some rays of sun!
Ignore any stares or smile back politely.
Put on your sunscreen.
Drink lots of water.
You won’t regret it.
