This just in…it’s hot in the summer

Apparently everyone and their brother likes to point out that it’s hot.  Really?  Is it hot?  I hadn’t noticed, thanks for letting me know!!  Sarcasm aside, most of these folks have the best intentions and are offering their sympathy for my plight.  My doctor also offered his condolences and I told him that everyone has been very sympathetic.  He asks me: Does it help?  Well, no, not really.  However, I do appreciate their empathy as I endure one of the hottest summers on record whilst 8 months pregnant with twins.  In all honesty, it really hasn’t been that awful.  I’m usually always cold, so the heat is actually comforting to me.  So I sweat a little (a lot) more than usual, but no biggie.  I think the worst is just being approached by so many strangers.  I am roughly the size of an 18-wheeler, so I guess it’s worth stopping to comment.  Plus I think people are afraid I might bust into labor right then and there.  Anyway, I’ve compiled a list of the top 3 weirdest places people have approached me about the pregnancy and/or heat sympathy commentary:

#3: In the middle of the street with oncoming cars as I am crossing to go into the grocery store.

#2: In Target, a complete stranger asked me if I was dilated.

#1: In a public bathroom from a stranger in the stall next to me while I am peeing.  Seriously…
