It's bloody 22 degrees where we live at the moment (rural chuffing Scotland) I take back every whinge about our summers ever! Am thinking of getting DH to hose me down outside, any tips for cooling down? Drinking lots of water but it's not refreshing at all!

Ice lollies and lots of them! I have the fruit ones so I don't feel too bad having 5 a day. It's not even that hot down here and I'm constantly sweating.

My feet and fingers have swollen beyond all reason because of the heat.

Well it's freezing down here at the moment but I feel your pain, I've got the whole summer to get through!

I have lots of ice lollies in the freezer

I feel your pain. We so rarely get a gorgeous summer in Ireland that I can't complain out loud but seriously, where's the bloody snow when you need it???

Also pregnant with HG I should add. I'm not normally such a grouch!

Water spray & a fan. If you work in an office, can you get one of those USB powered ones for your desk.

Twas well into the 30s for a couple of months before I gave birth. Honestly 22 degrees would have been bliss.

Ooh, I was 36 weeks pregnant with DD2 this time 6 years ago and the heat was bloody ridiculous. DH got me some aqueous cream with menthol in it and it was BRILLIANT for soothing swollen legs and ankles (Lloyds and Amazon sell it, not sure where else does). Hope that helps someone!
