You should talk to your dr. about you working conditions... maybe they can put you on short term disability. In the meantime... drink lots of cold WATER and take breaks when ever possible. If you are in the midwest, we should be getting a break from this...

I agree -- talk to doc. Seems to hot for you to be without air. PLEASE drink tons of water -- like 2 gallons a day or you're gonna get dehydrated and end up sittin the hospital with fluid being pumped in. PLUS dehydration will cause you to have contractions and early labor. BE SAFE and drink as much water as you possibly can. Also, try taking a towel to work with you and get it wet and put it on your neck. Not sure, but they've probably got some sort of cooling cloth or item you could buy and use. Maybe a little mini fan or something ..........

I understand your agony! We're in the heatwave too, well up till two days ago, and when I'd get home and get outside I'd just about pa__s out walking the dog around the block. I'd feel dizzy and nauseated a little so I just stayed inside the whole time. Finally it's only like 70 the last two days! I was full of energy yesterday. Drink plenty of water or gatorade and talk to your doc. Don't push yourself. It's not safe to get that overheated. It may not effect the baby but it's definately hurting your body.
