I don't know the average temperatures in your piece of Australia at the very moment, but just take it into account. Congratulations on your pregnancy! ...Read more

You listened to your body's message that you were getting warm and made a good choice to get cooler. Always drink enough fluids as well to keep urine light yellow. In the first trimester women get lightheaded easily as their body adjusts to the increase in blood volume needed to support the placenta. ...Read more
