Late Pregnancy Weather Complaints and Hopes

Under normal conditions, I get irritated with Seattlites who complain about the weather all of the time, no matter what. Come December 26th, they are tired of winter which began of course only five days earlier. If it's 80 degrees or higher, they complain that it's too hot. If it rains for several days in a row, which it often does, it's depressing.

Well, today I join the weather whiners and complain, "It's toooooooooo hot!!!" We reached 93 degrees here in Mountlake Terrace, a record high, and our home is a split-level oven in such weather.

Due to the heat, I was awake for almost three hours in the middle of the night last night. So between that, being nine months pregnant and the heat, let's just say that I am more than lethargic. I am a crabby zombie who is still attempting to get things done because let's face it - this baby is almost here!

My due date is a week from Sunday, on the 22nd. And while I have tried to rest as much as I can today, life still goes on despite being a crabby zombie. Children still need to be fed, lessons taught, laundry done, dishes washed, etc.

Thankfully, the end is near. And with any luck, maybe I will deliver early. The temperature is supposed to drop almost 20 degrees between Saturday and Monday and there will be a full moon next Thursday. I'm hoping that this may be the perfect situation to get things rolling!

This is how we cope: three fans pointed in my direction as I rest a bit with my feet up, two ice packs, a water bottle, a cold cloth on my head, virgin margaritas with lunch, iced tea this afternoon and ice cream will definitely be happening tonight :)

  1. You look SO hot! (In every aspect of the word). I can only imagine how miserable you must be, my dear! But, soon, so soon we'll meet the newest Clan member!!!
