Southern Summer Pregnancy
You know, back when I used to think that I'd be able to actually PLAN when I got pregnant, I thought I'd get pregnant around September or October, deliver in May or June, and effectively SKIP all the hot months. Yeah, that was BEFORE I knew I'd have to take it whenever it came. So here I am, 8 1/2 months pregnant in July in Mississippi. Nothing could be further from the plan I had. But I've learned how to manage. If I have to go out, whenever possible, I ask my husband to go out and start the car and let it cool off first. Mostly, I don't go outside. Between the heat and humidity, I can't handle more than a few minutes at a time out there. All I can say is thank the good Lord for air conditioning and lemonade!!!
