How are you beating the heat? — The Bump

How are you beating the heat?

We have temps in the 80's all week here (finally!)...I'm sure my feet will swell up like balloons though. How are you staying cool these days?

Re: How are you beating the heat?

  • Oh, what I wouldnt give to have temps in the 80's. Its been 95-100 here (Texas) for like 2 weeks straight, but off and on since early April. I have pretty much just stayed inside, wearing as little clothing as possible and my in laws have a pool which I discovered this weekend is a wonderful thing not only for beating the heat but for a pregnant body...takes the weight off!

    Good luck.

  • I'm drinking lots of water and staying inside with a/c cranked!
  • Today I am going swimming. Also, I have been putting ice and lemonade in the blender and blending it up, it makes a yummy, slushy lemonade!

    I just have to say...Gig 'em! :D

    I'm going home to Austin, TX next week for my baby shower and I am NOT looking forward to that heat.  It's only in the 80s up here in VA, but it feels miserable to me already!  I just make sure to stay hydrated and that has helped the swelling a lot, as well as keeping a mini fan close by :)

     WHOOP! I live just outside of Austin, in Lockhart, what are the odds. Be sure and pack lightly cause it is only getting hotter and the humidity is rising. Welcome back!

    we've had quite a few days in the 90s lately.  pregnancy hormones kicked in yesterday, i've been sweating like a pig, and i feel disgusting! 

    yesterday, i spent a decent amount of time with my feet up and my swelling never got too bad.  cold, cold water has been my best friend.  i would die for a swimming pool!

  • It's been in the 80's/90's here for the last week so I've just been putzing around the house in our glorious AC.

    Freeze pops, watermelon, cold meals, and enjoying it! I'd rather be in this 85* heat than in a blizzard!
  • Oh, Lord!  DH just uncovered and cleaned the AC last night.  I was able to turn it on today and it was the most glorious thing I've felt in ages!  I could actually put my makeup on without it melting off immediately!

    The heat isnt my problems its the darn humidity! Water and a/c are my best friends unfortunatly my car a/c went out hoping it just needs to be recharged and not something more.
    Over a year of trying and 3 cycles of Clomid DS#1 arrived
    DC #2 on its way!
