making summer pregnancies enjoyable

i know that being pregnant in the summer isn't going to be easy (especially when we only have a window unit for AC). i'm mentally preparing myself for the heat, the swelling, and feeling like i wanna stand in a cold shower all day long...thanks goodness it hasn't been too bad yet. what has helped me through a few of the warmer days lately are

otter pops (we always have a supply in the freezer), and my current craving....shaved ice!!! we have a sno shack just a few blocks from our house (you locals know how fantastic a good sno shack is), and last night josh informed me that he had some cash in his wallet (we don't usually carry cash) so that i could have my shaved ice fix (i'm to the point in my pregnancy that crunching on ice is fantastic). so we went out last night after dinner, got us each some shaved ice (i tried the melon ice flavor.....delish), came home, and spent the rest of the evening watching star trek enterprise (i realize that this makes us sound totally lame but it's our new fave) in shorts and tank tops. we are going to enjoy this last "lazy" summer before our little stone arrives.

thank you otter pops and sno shack for making summer pregnancies much more enjoyable!

Ah yes crunching on ice! With both my kids I swear I could just crunch on ice all day and be happy during the pregnancys! So glade we have Sno Shack!! One thing I always look forward to is the ice they have at the hospitals and they can put flavor in them as well!
