I am actually melting.

It is too fecking hot. angry

HeffalumpTheFlump Sun 07-Jul-13 15:27:33

Yep, I'm inside on the loveliest day of the year because the minute I step outside I feel so faint from the heat. I barely slept last night because of it!! I'm just looking forward to next summer when we will be enjoying it with our baby girl smile

same here Heffalump i'm sitting watching people outside having fun.
When're you due?

afrikat Sun 07-Jul-13 15:49:09

Oh my word I can't cope! The kids next door have a paddling pool - I may kick them out smile

AbiElizabeth Sun 07-Jul-13 15:50:42

Do it!

I had a cold shower and didn't want to get out. Run out of icelollies and DP is working till late. :/

Yes I'm officially dying! This weather is not made for pregnant women! Went for a walk because I'm trying to get baby out...due in two weeks and already having contractions. But had to come back because heat was too much. I thought I'd be able to enjoy myself and the weather once I started mat leave. No such luck!

AbiElizabeth Sun 07-Jul-13 16:16:47

I feel a bit guilty for not enjoying the weather and being outside, but I know as soon as I go outside i'll burn again

TinkyPeet Sun 07-Jul-13 16:26:32

I'm just a puddle on the floor.....

Littleballofhate Sun 07-Jul-13 16:28:32

I hate the heat. I am light sensitive. I get massive headaches and nausea. I despise being sweaty all day. Bring on Autumn and winter!

AbiElizabeth Sun 07-Jul-13 16:34:09

Impressive typing skills for a puddle tinky

LadyFlumpalot Sun 07-Jul-13 16:38:09

Yes. I'm munching my way through a pint glass full of ice. I've cut my mouth to shreds chewing it but its SO NICE!

Too hot here and only 32 weeks. Not looking forward to the rest of this month long heatwave everyone else has been cheering about. Still commuting an hour into work on the tube full time, but office is fairly well aired (not air con but good enough). Luckily I don't have swelling or any blood pressure probs to start with but still I feel completely washed out and can hardly sleep.

39w here.... Melting too. Looks gorgeous outside but our back garden is like a sun trap - mega hot - struggled to put washing out earlier. :S

About to fill the birth pool up again for the 4th day in a row for at least a 3 hour long soak/cool off....!!

Sorry to say, I love the warmth and still comfortable, but I have savage hay fever that's keeping me indoors sad, and a pelvis that feels like it is going to shatter any second so not allowed to do anything 'outdoorsy' angry

snickersnacker Sun 07-Jul-13 17:53:21

Hate it, hate it, hate it. My feet are elephantine and I'm moving between the living room with my feet in a bowl of cold water, and the bedroom where we have a little air-conditioning unit. I have no idea what I'm going to wear to work this week while it's so hot.

Rowboat Sun 07-Jul-13 19:46:25

Im not great in heat anyway, and am only 16 weeks but dying. Plus my toddler kept asking to go outside, and dh was out most of the day. She also keeps climbing on me and I just want her to get off. Its tooooo hot for that. Grump .

PurplePoppySeed Sun 07-Jul-13 20:08:33

Ahhh, "month long" Rake? Oh god, I'm also commuting into London - cant cope!

Kelly1814 Sun 07-Jul-13 20:20:26

Spare a thought for those of us in the Middle East...48 degrees today! Car AC broke on way to a meeting and was drenched in literally 30 seconds. Vile!

WhatILoved Sun 07-Jul-13 20:22:27

I'm loving it, but only 24 weeks and possibly was a lizard in a past life!

HeffalumpTheFlump Sun 07-Jul-13 20:25:06

Abi - I'm not due until October (am 26 weeks now) but am absolutely massive already. My bump has its own gravitational force and people are constantly doing the whole "are you sure it's not twins" bullshit.

Ladyflumpalot - same, ice is my best friend, especially at night!! Fantastic name by the way!

JollyShortGiant Sun 07-Jul-13 20:28:45

I'm going through a pack of icicles a week grin

purpleaura Sun 07-Jul-13 20:47:58

31 weeks and my fingers are like sausages. Soooo hot sad time to send dp out to buy ice lollies smile

charlottesweb87 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:08:01

I have just left south west America where it was 49 degrees. Now I am back in England it just feels nicely warm. Although without air con in our home the nights feel far too warm.

Whiteshoes Sun 07-Jul-13 21:16:30

Amen. Hating it. Our front room is all windows and boiling boiling. Miserable and 36 weeks. So grumpy. And now allowing the toddler to play with the tablet, when I promised myself I wouldn't.
