    104?? Yikes! And I have been complaining when it's in the high 80s here.

    Woohoo for single digits!

    Yay for getting everything done. I hope you had a good time in the pool and that the crampiness means things are happening.

    80s is like boiling here. I would put the little AC in the bedroom window and crank it up. We get into shorts and flip flops when it gets above 65.

    It's true, you really do acclimate to normal temps. 104 is of course really hot, but it's dry and as long as you're not sitting around in the sun it really isn't that bad. I would take 104 with no humidity over 85 with high humidity ANY day. Ugh, New York in the summer was the worst. I always felt like I was walking around inside a dirty sponge. And we didn't have a/c in our prewar building--just a unit in the bedroom. Misery.

    Not much change in how I'm feeling physically, still light on/off prelabor stuff. Sleep is a fickle friend who deserted me almost entirely last night, and for no good reason. Otherwise, I am just solidly in the end-stage waiting game. Everything is done, now we're just waiting for baby to decide she's curious enough to come see what all the fuss is about out here Hoping for a full-moon-window baby (24th-28th) but feeling relatively patient. Porter's been having fun trying out acupressure (we found a good web site and he printed it up) on me, so far with no noticeable results but a lot of it might be good for pain relief in labor. Otherwise just the usual yoga ball bouncing and EPO. I'm actually glad we made it to 39 weeks, since that's better for baby, and now as long as she holds out a few more hours, I'll get the Cancer I wanted anyway. Not that there's anything wrong with Geminis

    We did belly casts and "nice" photos this weekend for father's day. I'll post them when they're ready. (Word to the wise: don't use massage oil instead of vaseline as a skin coating for plaster casting. I was trying to avoid slathering my pregnant belly in fossil fuels, but...OUCH. Not sure it was worth it. All the tiny little hairs on my torso did not thank me, that's for sure!)

    I hear you on the humidity thing. It is so humid here. Our air feels like soup most of the time. It's so oppressive.

    A full moon baby would be so cool. I hope you get your wish!

    Definitely hot here too- in the 90s and super humid. To save electricity, we have our thermostat set to 82.. and we've acclimated to it pretty well. I'm freezing when I go somewhere that's 72.

    Sorry sleep is eluding you- I never could understand why mother nature would use the last few weeks to suck away every last drop of energy reserves we have, and THEN makes us go through labor and hands us a newborn.

    I agree. If there is anytime you need the sleep its right before having baby and thats the exact time that sleep tends to elude you. Irony. Sounds like you've got a really good outlook at these last few days of pregnancy.

    I will make a mental note about the vaseline vs. oil for casting. Ouch. Can't wait to see pics!

    This is me... it was close to 90 here today and it's really humid and it's only going to get worse this week. We only have the window unit in the bedroom and I am convinced it's not working. It's going to be a LONG summer for me.

    I hope you get some sleep tonight.
