Ok I wanted a nice summer, I moaned when it rained everyday and was happy when the sun started to shine again. .....But this is terrible. Stuck in London, no air, boiling hot weather (well not exactly but it seems like that when you are 30 weeks gone) Can't sleep as its too hot and can't open the window as it's too noisy if I do.
I am dipping buckets, slouched on the sofa feeling sorry for myself.
......and in the UK we don't have air con like they do in other countries, we have carpets and nothing to cool the place down. My table fan has been going strong but it's just not enough.
I vow to never be pregnant in the summer time again.
I'm due tomorrow and have been planning a water birth. I'm worried that there is going to be a sudden surge because of said amount of sweat caused by pregnancy! I don't want loads of women stealing all the pools just because it's hot when i've been planning it since october!
My sympathies Ivortheengine8. Heat and pregnancy are not good mates.
I remember being heavily pregnant in the really hot summer of 1983,and was living in Notting Hill at the time (pre desired area times). No washing machine,so walking to launderette with 2 bags,blazing sunshine,no control,threw up there in the middle of Notting Hill on the pavement...including the peach I had not long just wolfed doen ,still holding the 2 bags!
Mortification finally hit home when I looked over the road,and two Japenese tourists were snapping away
Wonder if they got the side profile or full front view of the v sign snap
Oh Rooks, you poor thing, Good luck. Any signs yet?
Crazy, I was only 3 in 1983! I think summers were generally a bit hotter back then though? Well I hope those Japanese tourists look fondly back on their holiday snaps in the UK! - They do snap absolutley everything though don't they?!! Thats a bit OTT though I wonder if one of them had been pregnant before in summer! People are bizarre¬!
DS was born in August 2009. The last few weeks were so hot that on most days I just sat on the sofa in my underwear with the blinds closed and a fan running. Post-delivery I told DH "no more summer babies!"
Just to say I feel the same. 32 weeks, live in London, in an attic flat, all the windows open, still boiling! I don't know what to do with myself and am not enjoying it all Lets hope this heatwave doesn't last more than a few days!
MrsZB careful with peppermint - I was told you shouldn't use in early pg.
I went to the supermarket today to buy ice lollies to help cool me down - 32 +6w pg with twins. The heat is okay, it's the humidity at night I'm struggling with. I had a shower last night at 3am as I was so hot :-(
I feel the same 31+ 3w and Suffering badly! I usually love this heat and would have just returned from Dubai holiday in 42+ degree heat! It's crazy how pregnancy changes your body's coping mechanisms . I am sat most of the day on my sofa with blinds shut and fan on full. At night lay on top of any covers again with the fan on full (poor DH dragging fan-up and down the stairs !)
Worse thing today was it was my first antenatal class ! It was sweltering in the room! Two hours of sitting trying not to collapse with heat exhaustion! Not fun at all. Roll on the rain :0)
