Heatwave and Pregnancy – Not a Fun Combo

9 Months Pregnant During a Heatwave

It’s been a bit crazy lately. I feel like the weather, my body, and everyone else has gone a bit insane this past month. Let’s see what’s going on – we’re in a middle of a nasty heatwave, I’m still pregnant, and many people are annoying me with ‘ Are you still around?’ questions.

As far as other people, I now see that babies give off this vibe where it’s fine to be annoying to someone already uncomfortable. I try to maintain a sense of humor, but it’s just not there anymore. I don’t really think it’s funny. People constantly asking me if the baby is born by phone has gotten annoying and I now limit talking to them.  Yes, I would love to have her in my arms already, the baby will come when she comes.

Oh, well. I’m done complaining, now on to some personal finance stuff.

Catch My Posts on Lending Tree Now!

In case you’re curious what I’ve been up to, I’ve been blogging over at Lending Tree now. I have a post today on handling debt as a couple. I know that many spouses have to first get on the same page before they can tackle their debt, so I offered some tips on making that transition much easier.  I also had a post last month on ways to save some money with your wedding. Summer seems to be a popular time to get married, but these tips apply year round.

If you enjoy the posts, please share it with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, or Google +.

I feel that blogging is about building a community and expanding your circle, so I’m really excited to joining some wonderful bloggers over at the site. You’ll recognize quite a few are from the Yakezie network.

  1. Thanks for the mention. And I totally feel for you about the pregnancy business. I was in my second trimester over the summer and I was miserable. I can only imagine what you’re going through!

  2. Mrs. SPF has been surviving. We have a window AC unit and a floor unit, but no central air. She is @ 7 months now with a few more months of summer to go.
    Best of luck Elle! The little one will arrive when she’s ready!

  3. I was feeling jealous of the stateside heat wave until I read this. I hope the heat and the annoying questions aren’t getting you down too much. Not much longer now. Best of luck with the birth Elle!

  4. Thanks for the mention and good luck with the heat!

  5. Congratulations on your Lending Tree spot Elle. And I can only imagine how annoyed you are. Being pregnant in the summer (from what I’ve heard) can be a monster in itself.

  6. I’m due in 3 weeks and last week ran the AC 24/7 or I would have melted. Hubby just said use it when I need it and I needed it all week! Thankfully it cooled down a bit today.

  7. Best of luck with the baby and riding out the heat wave. Enjoy it as best you can!

  8. Thanks everyone for the kind words and support! I’m laying low as much as I can and I’m trying to get ahead with some Couple Money blog posts.

  9. Congratulations on your Lending Tree spot Elle. I am not pregnant and the heat is killing me, so I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you. Hopefully it will cool down soon.

  10. Awww–I don’t know what you are going through, but good luck with everything!!! We are in Houston, so it’s hot and humid here pretty much all summer.

  11. The good news is that if you end up smacking the people who ask you for the thousandth time if the baby is here yet, you can blame pregnancy hormones :)

  12. Starting to lose my sense of humor about all this heat. Thanks for the mention, and best wishes for the pregnancy.

  13. I love what Jackie said. Hang in there, she will be so worth it!
