    Im almost 20 weeks..actually 10-12 lbs less than my pre preggie weight which was very overweight anyway...and this heat is just..horrid!!..its hot...muggy...sticky..no breeze.. Im hating it!!!:growlmad: and its only the 2nd day of June..seriously..?!?!?

    Hubby bought us a $20 inflatable pool so I can get some sun..which I desperately need but stay cool too..and I picked up some waterbabies SPF75 broadspectrum sunscreen to protect me and the bump..I also plan on rigging up our big umbrella to give some shade as well..but still getting in/our of the car at the stores during the day..is miserable..

    How is everyone else handling the early summer heatwave?:shrug:

    I'm not! LOL. There is an AC in the living room but my room one broke so I haven't put a new one in yet.. just a fan. They're just too damn expensive! I'm pretty much just wearing as little clothing as possible and staying hydrated LOL

    It has been in the 90's this past week or two here in the Philadelphia area. Humid and miserable. Thank goodness I have this new snowcone machine and my husband runs around pointing a fan at me to keep me cool. haha

    I feel for all you ladies, I'm dreading the heat that's bound to come. However, where I'm living in Canada it snowed today - YES, Snow in June! Never expected this one when it was in the mid 20's and hot yesterday.

    Makes me wish I had a summer home in like..freaking Antarctica...lol lol.. the one thing I am glad for though is that by the time Brieanan is born this heat will be over..I would hate to have a newborn in this heat...soo much easier to keep them warm and toasty than to keep them cool...

    I pretty much refuse to leave my lovely central air unless I absolutely have to :thumbup: I work from home, so it works out pretty well for me, otherwise I would probably be a very very cranky preggo

    And I was just complaining about how it's still pretty chilly out where I live! We are finally going to hit 80 on Saturday... but it won't last long... we've not gotten a real summer or even spring yet!!! Ah, the north west!!!!

    Hope you ladies are able to stay cool! We just had central AC installed in case it does get hot this summer... otherwise I'll buy a kiddie pool for the backyard!

    Maybe take some cool baths??? Best of luck!
