Thanks to my heritage, I have always been lucky in the sun. I never burned as a wee one, but as I have aged and become more aware of its harmful rays, my skin seems to have become more sensitive too.
Then, last weekend I discovered that a pregnant woman is no match for the sun. Many expecting ladies develop extra sensitive skin and apparently, I am one of them. The Florida sun proved to be more powerful than I imagined. After applying sunscreen repeatedly, at the end of the day I was still one pink pregger mama.
When we flew home the next day, I grimaced in pain as my toddler grabbed at my necklace and clawed my sore chest on her way down. Thankfully, the pain has subsided and the red turned bronze. Next time I go to the pool, I'll be lathered in a higher SPF from head to toe.
Did pregnancy bring more sunburns to your skin?
