Being pregnant in the summer does suck...

So I know a lot of people on here are like "I hate it when people tell me how miserable I'll be being pregnant in the summer and I want to tell them to shut up!" Well, I've decided, they're right!!!  I'm SOOOO glad I'm due in a week because this being pregnant in the heat business sucks!  It's so hot out, I'm sweaty, enormous and don't feel comfortable enough to do any of the fun stuff there is to do around here on a beautiful day!! UGH!!!

  • Hmmm, I guess that's bad news for us late summer mommies!

  • It totally is!! I feel bad for anyone due late summer/early fall!!
  • I think it does make it a little more uncomfortable, but I imagine most women are just as uncomfortable when they get to the end of their pregnancies, regardless of the season.

  • Ditto, but I still don't need the "reminders".  Sometimes I want to just say something like "Holy Cow, Really??  My Dr. said I should wear lots of layers to combat the chills.  Maybe I should google it".
  • I was due in September and I didn't mind it.  Watermelon, A/C, flip-flops, comfy sundresses and swimming were the best.  I'm just glad it wasn't winter and I didn't have to worry about slipping on ice, stuffing my swollen feet in real shoes or buying a winter coat just to fit my enormousness.

    That would be hysterical!

  • I agree...but I'm sure I'd find something else to b*tch about if it was January.  I'm pretty sure being 39 weeks pregnant sucks all year round.

  • Yeah, I just stay inside.  I've always hated summer regardless of being pregnant.  So I just don't go out there. Stick out tongue

    I'm only 33 weeks, but so far I'm loving being pregnant in summer!

    I'm a teacher so I'm on break.  What's great about that is after my sleepless nights, I don't have to be up early to get ready for work.

    I spend most of my week at the pool and in my air conditioned house.

    Granted, I'll be missing some things this year, like the Taste of Chicago, because I know it will be too much for me, but overall, it hasn't been bad.

  • It'sw more the summer activities I hate missing out on: beer fest, the water park, summer concerts...sure I could still do all this stuff, but it's not nearly as fun not fully participating

  • I am due Aug 25th. Texas summer sucks so bad. But, I have to say, I'd rather be pregnant during summer in TX then in GA. I lived in Athens GA for a while and the humidity there is horrible compaired to here. I keep telling myself "it could be worse". I don't know how the older generations did it with out A/C. Can you imagine being in labor when its 105 degrees and no A/C.

    It's been humid and in the 90's here for nearly two weeks. I'm not going to lie... it sucks. I feel like I'm getting worn out a little quicker than I would if it were Fall or Spring, and I have way too much left to do.

  • I couldnt agree more! DD was born in November and it was so much more comfortable! If I was going to have more kids, there is no way I would plan for a summer baby. This sucks.

  • yup. being pregnant in the summer SUCKS BIG TIME. Im due August 19th and I'm praying LO either comes early or on time. I wont make it. And yes It's still annoying when people tell me how hot Im gonna be.

    Gee I didn't know that SUMMER was considered hot all my life! Thanks for informing me !

    This is exactly how I feel. At least I don't have to try to tie shoes every time I go out.

    I am really loving the pool and wearing tanks with shorts and flip flops!  I had my DS the end of January and bundling up in a coat was annoying.  I am enjoying this pregnancy just as much thanks to the a/c, the pool and having my DH home since he is a teacher.

    Absolutely agree. The heat is annoying, but at least it is sundress and sandal weather...no ice/snow/shoveling/winter coats. Trying to find the bright side:)

  • I agree! DS # 1 was born in June...so it wasn't too bad, but this mid to end of july business just isn't cutting it for me.  I can handle outside for short periods...but going to the zoo, walks etc....it is miserable...but I do it

  • i concur. i'm not a summer person to begin with but this year has been hot and my a/c decided to break and now needs to be completely replaced. it's so much easier to bundle up to get warm than it is to cool down. and when you're pregnant, there is no cooling down your core.

  • I've done both. DD was born in March and now we've schedule a section on August 20th. 

    I really didn't mind the winter months at all.  The summer sucks b/c I feel bad for DD more than me...she LOOOOOVES to be outside ALLL the time and we've had some pretty nasty hot and humid days and I just couldn't be out there.  I've also had to pass up on some annual fun summer trips too - which sucks.  I know it will all be worth it but...........I would take a winter baby anyday!

  • I don't mind it! I didn't have to buy any real maternity clothes. Just rocking sundresses and leggings. If it were the winter I'd have had to worry about coats,jackets,layers and shoes. No THanks!
  • I agree.  I used to tell people "I love summer and the heat, I'll be fine!"  Yeah right.  Its only June, I still have 11 weeks left and I am miserable when I'm not in the a/c!

  • i like being able to wear skirts, tanks and dresses but it has been a ridiculously hot june here in NJ and i love being outside reading by the pool, but i can only bear it for like a half hour in this heat before it is just too much for me!

  • I am envious that you are due in a week!  It has gotten a lot hotter here this last week and I still have a little more than a month to go. Not sure if my Husband will survive with me attempting to make our house into a walk-in freezer.
  • i thought 1st tri in the summer was much much worse. i am hot and uncomfortable now, true, but the constant nausea and vomiting in the hottest part of the summer with my DS was MUCH worse. i felt so sick, and the heat made it a billion times worse!

    MIL had DH in the middle of July in Atlanta.  They had no a/c at the time either.  I can't imagine that.  June in PA is too hot and humid for my taste, and I'm not almost done yet.  Summer is suck.

  • I must be the odd man out here, because I love the summer pregnancy... Granted I am not a fan of winter in the first place besides Christmas:) I love the fact I can throw on 90% of my pre-pregnancy summer dresses and call it a day!

  • Well, I'm glad I'm not alone! For me it's not only the heat is making me uncomfortable but I hate missing out on all the fun summer activities! I am dying to go to the beach but I A) dont' t fit into anything suitable to wear at the beach and B) would have to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes and it wouldn't be worth it!!  There are just so many awesome things to do around here in the summer and I feel like I'm missing out because I'm so miserably big and hot!!  Hoping our little girl decides to make an appearance soon so we can enjoy the beautiful weather with her!!! Good luck ladies and try to stay cool :)
  • I'm a lurker and I have to say I agree with you. You are so lucky, i'm not due until october.
