While you may have been lulled into a false sense of comfort by lower temperatures this week, don't count on them lasting! According to's report on the National Weather Service's Prediction , "It could feel like 105 degrees or above over a large swath of the nation this weekend, from the Dakotas and Minnesota to Texas and Louisiana." Many states are issuing heat warnings.

Is a Heat Wave predicted for your area? What are your plans to keep your precious pregnant self cool and Safe?

Lurking from 3rd tri. In Missouri there has been excessive extended heat warrning for so long that the govenor is about to activate the national guard to help the St. Louis emergency management team prevent a repeat of the last extended heat warrning, 156 people died of heat related illness. I know that I will be staying at home in bed with the A/C set at 72 degrees. This is probably the only time I am greatful to be on bedrest. Though I do have to leave the house on Monday for my C-section.

Best wishes for your c-section on Monday!

I have been short of breath a lot lately, and this heat wave in South Central Kentucky is really making it worse. I just saw the local weather and we are under an Excessive Heat Watch for another solid week. The heat index may even rise to 120; add the humidity and it is unbearable. The crazy thing is we have had really cold winters these past two winters too. Nervous about the Jan. 2 due date and snow. Last winter we got down in the single digits with lots of snow. Talk about from one extreme to another.

Yikes, Beth (lbcash)! Another whole week of super heat? Hopefully it will cool off sooner than predicted.

Hope you're writing this all down in your little one's baby book so he or she knows what you had to go through!
