Heat Wave

Wow. I never quite realized how hard it is to be pregnant during the summer. For the life of me I can't seem to regulate my body temperature. No matter how hot or cool it is outside I'm always about 20 degrees hotter than everyone else. All I have to do is get off the couch and I feel like I need a shower to cool off and wash off all of the sweat. I can't go anywhere or do anything without A/C. Thank goodness yesterday was a little cooler so I really enjoyed the break from the hot weather. Today however was back to the sunny and hot weather and as if that's not enough I let my hubby have the car so that he could do a massive shopping. Well what that means for me of course is that I must walk all over to pick up the kids. Walking to my son's cheider is not so fun although better than it was last year. I left extra early so I would have time to take breaks. Then we had to walk and pick up my daughter. All I wanted to do was sit in a bathtub full of ice cubes by the time I got home. Well I guess if I were to look at the bright side I would be happy that the pregnancy is almost over. I'm finally in my ninth month and hopefully the weather will be getting cooler as the chagim approach.

Amen, Sista!
I'm only in my 6th month, and I feel like if I were in Siberia in the snow, I'd be like... okay, I guess I'm not sweating, but could you turn the air-conditioning on?

Carrying through summer into the "fall" is definitely the hardest. But you're over it now, sister!
