  • I worked outside up until a week before my first was due. It was hot as hell that summer, it was 100 most days. I worked at one of those produce stands on the side of the road, no A/C etc.. I stayed in the shade as much as possible, light clothes and lots of light snacks and plenty to drink.. I had done it for a long time before getting pregnant so I was use to it..

  • When I was pregnant I delivered pizzas and my a/c wasn't working in my car. The heat index was around 110 and I was miserable. I would go into the walkin cooler and cool off from time to time. I'm the kind of worker that I would have to be in the hospital pretty much before missing work so.. I just kept hydrated and did my job.
