    I have decided i will NEVER be pregnant in the summer ever again! I thought i was going to die yesterday :growlmad: We went for a mooch around the shops, bought some baby bits and had an ice cream... I was so bloody hot. My face felt like it was melting, my hair was soaked with sweat, i went dizzy... i bet i smelt like a donkey too. :sick:
    When i got home, my legs and feet were so swollen, i felt like an elephant :cry:
    To top it off, a lady who worked in Mothercare asked how long i had left, after telling her 5 weeks she said "Oh god, you are HUGE!". I felt an overwhelming urge to spit on her....
    On a happier note, husband bought me a lovely changing bag :happydance:

    I am miserable in the heat now too! I thought I was going to be fine because I was only going to be pregnant a little bit into the summer, but no! It is a humid heat where I live too and the ac is broken on the car so anytime we go anywhere I am miserable! It feels so much hotter when you are pregnant for some reason. I always have hated the heat and summer, but now it is completely unbearable. :(

    Glad you at least got something cool from being hot though. I love the bag.

    I plan on having my due date in February next time, hahaha! :)

    Oooh I feel your pain.. I uploaded the picture below to Facebook when "driving" home yesterday.. I was stuck in traffic, sweltering in the heat (it seems like the AC in my car doesn't want to work either..), and had a baby dancing on my bladder the whole way home. It took me AGES. When I eventually got in through the front door, my thighs had been sweating SO much through my beige linen crops that it looked like my waters had broken down my legs or I had wet myself :dohh: At least I know it was only sweat lol.. But they went straight in the wash!!

    I'm about to brave the heat again and go into the city centre to find a dress I can squeeze myself into for a wedding next weekend.. :coffee:

    Oh Boy can I relate! I have been complaining about a summer baby non-stop! lol. The heat is overwhelming and I feel the need to shower at least 3 times a day because I constantly feel gross! the AC is never strong enough and I just want Ah well, Lets take comfort in the fact that we're due in July and NOT august! If I were due in August I would die!

    I had my first the end of August. It wasn't that bad, but theres this huge yardsale that people go to annually in August and I thought it would be a good idea to look for baby stuff. I was wrong! About passed out a few times lol.

    I enjoy the heat, and grew up in a sub-tropical climate, but I feel hotter and bigger with this one already and it's only just June. I don't have long to go! I did get the a/c fixed in my car because it's been in the mid 90's.

    I am hating being pregnant in this heat. It's lovely to see the sunshine, but i don't cope well in the heat to begin with.

    I have to confess that putting a little bag of grapes into the freezer and eating them when they're frozen is fantastic - really refreshing and has helped to cool me down :) I'll be off to Asda later when it's not so hot to use my healthy start vouchers for more grapes lol x

    Oh dear! I am actually really enjoying the really warm weather. I hated having horrid ligament pains during the winter when it was freezing and made me feel so much worse!

    Totally agree! I hate being too hot anyway, but pregnancy adding a degree or two to my temperature sure ain't helping! I'm having driving lessons most days (determined to pass before Dinky is born!) and it's great being in the air conditioned car! My instructor cools the car as much as I need and just wears more layers himself to compensate, bless him.

    It's not the being pregnant that bothers me it's after LO is born. I get 100x more stressed out and flustered in the heat =(

    My electric bill is going to be INSANE from running the air conditioning all summer. But I can't sleep in the heat and I get so swollen and feel just nasty. Its only starting to get bad here, but today is supposed to be 90 with 100% humidity. So its going to feel 100+
