Heat Stroke in 60 Degree Weather...

So, I work in a school and my room is over the boiler, since there is still a chance of 30s at night, they will not turn the heat off. My classroom was 92 Degrees yesterday!!! (after I opened the windows which we are technically not allowed to do...it was 96 before.) I got dizzy and flushed and had to be monitored in the nurses office until I was safe to drive home!!! Not safe for a pregnant lady! I have been asking for help with this room for years, and now that I'm pregnant, they may actually do something. Yay?

  • Wow. They need to fix that fast or switch your room.

    I'm sure you're doing it already, but make sure you're drinking lots and lots of ice cold water.

  • That is a nasty situation! It's getting into the upper 80s here, so I've had to stop going out of the office for site visits already. I spent several hours outside on Saturday and it wiped me out for the rest of the weekend.

  • Be very careful with that. I get them a lot without being pregnant. I am scared for this summer. Triple digits + car sitting in the sun. Hopefully I can get it worked out that I won't have to be in the heat for.long periods of time.
    Praying they get this worked.out for you quickly.

  • I worked at a university during my last pregnancy, had a similar problem. All winter long it was so hot I would get to the office, strip down to a t-shirt, pants and flip flops, then re-dress before walking to my car in the snow… The HVAC guys would stop in our room, check everything and declare it was working fine. One day I finally stomped out of my area, red faced, swollen and pissed - they fixed it. Asshats. 

    Hope they get it fixed, especially being on your feet (I'm assuming here) it's just too much.

  • Thanks guys! Magically my room is now 67 (I love it!) Only took 5 years and a pregnant lady being sent to the nurse and forced to go home!
