I was born in the middle of August nearly 35 years ago. My brother was born at the end of August over 20 years ago. My mother has only been pregnant in the summer. Not just a little pregnant either. Full on big baby belly pregnant in the heat of the summer.
She is clearly a rock star.
I conceived my first son in July—pretty sure it was the Fourth of July weekend—five years ago. I was just a little pregnant during that summer. Instead I spent most of my pregnancy getting bigger and bigger in the cool Fall and Winter months. It was great. Nice stretchy pants and sweaters. Big roomy clothes to keep me and my belly warm and toasty.
This time it is the complete opposite. I conceived in late December and was just a little pregnant all through the Winter and Spring. Now it is full on summer and I am 29 weeks of big baby belly pregnant. I’m also really hot.
Under boob sweat sort of hot.
Make sure I have a bottle of water when I walk hot.
Oh my god do I have to wear clothes today sort of hot.
You get the picture.
I’m so thankful for cute lightweight maternity dresses. I wear the handful that I have most days. Not only do they keep me from being overcome by heat exhaustion, they are also really cute.
But even more so I could kiss the maker of the maternity tank tops with the built in bras. They are GLORIOUS. If you find a style that you like buy them in several colors. They are the perfect wardrobe staple for summer and will take you right through the fall if you layer them under other tops. Plus you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion.
