    Angry Why is it so hot???

    Could someone turn the temperature down here please - I'm trying to gestate!!!!!!

    This weather is ridiculous (45 deg). Is anyone else starting to feel sapped by this heat and do you reckon you're getting any symptoms you wouldn't get if it were cooler outside.

    My ankles swelled (?) up yesterday and I was shoved in to a feet stuck in the air position by my mother who threatened to take me to the doctor if I didn't sit there and shut up.



    We have air conditioning but it's a hard slog to fight.

    Yeah, it's just awful for everyone!!

    I notice a lot of people from the West Coast in here. We get the weather they get once it blows across the continent. Adelaide is cool compared to out here!! Add another 3 degrees to Adelaide's forecast and you've got the Riverland!!

    BUT - I do love Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm over the heat. I've got the A/C on full ball and a cool flannel on as well... I feel like crud! If I have any more babies I'm going to have to make sure I'm not so pregnant over summer!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, they do that, don't they scorpio???

    They get all cold and put the blanket on half way through the night when you're sleeping and you wake up "satched" because you've been sweating 'cause you're so hot.

    I've explained to my DH that I'm so "hot blooded" at the moment that when he's cold I'm likely to be just comfortable. When we did our tour of the labour wards, ages ago, he commented how cold the room was. I thought it was great and stated that I'm still likely to cook in there when giving birth.

    I'd dread for anyone to walk in the room at night when I'm sleeping - not much is left to the imagination!!

    We've had two cooler days here in SA though. It was 30 yesterday in the Riverland - so it was nice compared to that horrible garb' we had on the weekend. Actually got some sleep and some energy back.
