87 degrees, 28 weeks pregnant

--Day 1--

Thought Process:  Our air isn't working.  Oh well!  We'll get it fixed soon, I'm sure. I am brave and not high maintenance and kind of like a pregnant Wonder Woman and this is no big deal!  Wheee!

How I spend my day:  Moving furniture and doing laundry and cooking things in the oven.


--Day 2--

Thought Process: Okay, it's kind of cute that Luke thinks we can fix this ourselves.  He will come around! He will see how hot it gets tonight when our old windows won't open!.  Ha!  He is so funny and makes me laugh.


How I spend my day:  Out running errands so I can ignore the problem.  Come home briefly, and then leave again in search of an Icee.

--Day 3--


Thought Process: Seriously Luke?  Seriously?  Can I call someone to come fix this now?  I know you think you can fix it yourself, but you cannot.  You are an arborist not a heating and cooling guy. THIS REMINDS ME OF LIVING IN A DORM AND I AM NOT A TEENAGER ANYMORE.  I am pregnant and miserable and please excuse me, I am going to cry. 


How I spend my day:  At Target purchasing maternity swimsuit and cherry Icee, followed by a few hours on the deck in baby pool full of cold water.  At nighttime I sleep three non-consecutive hours with a large fan that just isn't cutting it.  It gets down to 70 outside, but our house refuses to drop below 81.

--Day 4--

Thought Process:  Okay, finally making the appropriate calls, ho hum, it's going to get fixed!!! Oh... wait.  No one can come fix it until next week?  Is this a joke?  Should I play the pregnant card and try to speed things up?

How I spend my day:  Trying really hard not to get a ticket from the drama police.  And trying to laugh about the situation.  And eating a lot of ice cream.  This is the plan, anyway.  It is only 11am.
 ...

Now here are some cute photos of our time outside to offset the complaining.

  2. Hey mama! Found you via your comment at Adventures in Babywearing today.

    Those are really beautiful shots that absolutely round things out with a lot of cuteness.

    28 weeks pregnant and no a/c? This is the stuff of nightmares. May the forces of the universe that control things like A/C repair smile gently on you today.

  3. Having done pregnant in airconditionless summer, I must say I'm impressed that you stayed calm so long. Go eat some more ice cream. I'm praying the air is on soon.

  4. When our house (the inside) hit 82 I started to cry. But we had our broken air drama last year, so we were able to just turn it on this year.

    Hang in there. Ice cream is an excellent solution. (For now, at least.)

  5. Sorry Mama! I send my sympathies for your latest plight. And, it's nice to know that other pregnant ladies enjoy the heat as much as i did. Our home gets really, really hot (last summer our highest was 104 degrees), but since we rent we decided not to buy the owner an AC. Hard decision to live with last summer though. Target icees would have sounded nutritious had we one nearby on the mountain. Being pregnant is enough, isn't it!? Take care, keep cool (as much as you can), and I hope you guys have a hot but fun holiday weekend.

  6. Oh, no! I hope it gets resolved soon!

    This did happen to me once, at the office I worked for -- but I just snuck back to the break room and popped my pregnant belly into an open fridge door every few minutes. Probably not the best solution in your own home -- the waste of electricity! -- but I justified it somehow at work :)

  7. Oh, you poor thing! The drama police would have gotten my by this point. I think I would have temporarily moved back in with my parents. Air conditioning is a prerequisite for my existence...especially while pregnant. I hope the repair man calls and says he can magically come out sooner. Or at least maybe a cool front could come your way.

  8. I think I may have seen that situation on Survivor.

    Wishing you speedy cold air and unlimited Icees.

  9. I have 2 July babies and this little guy I'm carrying now is due in August. Plus, I have an early September kiddo. Summer babies are awesome, once they are born.

    In the meantime, it's always a hunt for the coldest air conditioning, ice cream, and pool.

    It is in the mid-80s here today and we have no A/C yet. Husband hasn't de-winterized it.

  10. I totally feel you. We don't have air or even window units in our house right now. But I do have the good news that my dad is coming to install an entire unit on Saturday for us. I guess it helps that it is in the family- you should have called my dad to see if he could at least diagnosis the problem. :)And you should pull the preggo card and get it done NOW. Until then, eat more icees and icecream. And take more adorable pics. SOOOO CUTE!

  11. this is why I like you so much- you are so funny and adorable. you're children are also very adorable and you take such great photos. I'm so sorry you're hot. I know that horrible feeling. I spent so many afternoons just sitting in a kiddie pool- without Emerson (did you know I broke her pool trying to get my large self out? sad.)

  12. Play the pregnant card! It's not often you can, so live it up, lady. ;) lol.
    It's supposed to be cooler tomorrow everywhere, right?

  13. I was pregnant with two of my three pregnancies in the dead of Summer... I can relate. So sorry! Hopefully you'll get cooled down. That is truly no fun.

  14. Sounds like it's time to pack up the kids and go to mom's until they fix it. Or a cheapie hotel with an indoor pool.

    I hope the AC fix-it people come to your rescue soon!

  17. Almost 30 weeks pregnant and no A.C.??? Unacceptable. Hope it's fixed!

    Nice photos of your beauties! :)

  18. I seriously feel your pain (well, at least some of it)! Our AC quit working last week. Your husband must know more about AC than i do, because I called the repair guy right away. Three different repair guys (the last one on Tuesday evening) have informed us that nothing is wrong with our system. Then WHY doesn't it cool the house, I ask. The last guy told me we need to buy a whole new AC unit AND furnace. Grrr.

  20. Ha! I love the labels on this post. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I will likely be hanging out on here. I can't get enough of mamas and mamas-to-be. Good luck with the upcoming hot months this summer, and happy belated birthday!
