Although everyone around you associates the warm weather with beach trips and backyard BBQs, you connect it to rivers of sweat all over your body. With a long holiday weekend coming up, you might forced to spend some extra time in the great outdoor. But don't worry— there are plenty of ways to control your pregnancy sweats on the 4th of July, so you can stay comfortable while you're celebrating.
Sweating when you're pregnant isn't always just due to the temperature outside (although hot and humid weather certainly doesn't help).
