25 weeks and although I Brazilian the heat is something else!!!
I only wear cotton and wash my hair everyday ( tying in a ponytail ) to cool me off.
Like another post I am having loads of watery veggies fruits and frozen grapes and semifrozen watermelon....

36 weeks and I've had enough. Swollen feet, can't sleep...getting very irritable.

34 weeks here and getting fed up with how cranky the heat is making me feel! I even resorted to having a cold shower in the middle of the night...can't wait until it cools down!

Remember to eat lots of cold watery stuff too as there is only so much water you can drink confused stuff like watermelon and cucumbers are lovely and cooling as well as being full of water too. And ice poles/jubblies.

Right there with you all! 31+1 and it's horrible. However, dunking myself in a cold bath was heavenly (even if i did start heating it up mainly with my feet )

Thanks ladies! You've made me feel less alone. Feeling so hot was making me really down!

My god yes... On a train right now and my phone registers 91f on here. I'm literally baking, poor hot bub in there. 24 weeks, this isn't fun

I'm so hot and tired I'm a weepy mess, and I'm only 26+5!

I cannot get enough water on board either. The only nice bit is my commute in my air conditioned car, although checking my blind spot is getting trickier due to my expanding bump!

Greenj glad to hear your kids are helping you! Bless them! I cannot wait until maternity leave!! It is such a struggle to concentrate at work, I am about as useful as a chocolate teapot after lunch!

Dolallytats Mon 15-Jul-13 18:22:56

greenj1, I have actually bought a 12in desk fan to take with me because I'm scared they won't have one!! I also have the flannel, a water spray and am freezing bottles of water to take with me!! I think that's all bases covered!!!

Tulip2013 Mon 15-Jul-13 18:14:23

I totally agree! I'm 27 weeks + 5 and really suffering. Getting on the train feels like stepping into an oven. I just heard on the radio the hear might last until end of July. Argh!!!!!

greenj1 Mon 15-Jul-13 18:10:54

Dolally...lots of cool flannels for The birth ;) it really does suck being pregnant in a heatwave!

greenj1 Mon 15-Jul-13 18:08:51

Well my 3 dc are being very helpful! I'm doing this as a single mum this time as well, but you just have to get on don't you!! I bet you can't wait til maternity leave smile

Dolallytats Mon 15-Jul-13 18:07:18

I am 39 weeks and have been sat all day with a fan on and my poor swollen feet up on a chair. I am slowly coming round to the idea that it is going to be roasting when I go into labour and I have no idea how I am going to cope.

I'm not a fan of hot weather at the best of times and I am struggling. My poor feet don't even fit into my Birkenstocks anymore, even though I have put them on the last buckle hole!! I may be going bare foot to the hospital!!

Preggobear Mon 15-Jul-13 18:06:19

If I'm feeling it at 24 weeks it must be so hard for you at 36 especially with 3 DCs to look after!! I know what you mean about cooking in this weather, it's the last thing you want to be doing. Take it easy, I hope you are getting plenty of help and rest where you can

greenj1 Mon 15-Jul-13 17:54:23

Yep,36 weeks and seriously struggling! Got my.puffy feet in cool water, Ice cubes to crunch lol! I am living on ready meals as well cos it is to bloody hot to cook a proper dinner smile thank god ky 3 other dc have hot dinners at school! I can get away with feeding them sandwiches fruit and yoghurts when they come home!!

Anyone else struggling in this heat? I'm 24 weeks pregnant and finding it really hard to cope. The temperature in our office today was 30'C!!!
