It's hot!

Do you ever remember it being this hot? I've lived in Texas my whole life. I was born in the summer, I love the summer and being outside but I have never in my life remembered it being THIS hot! I'm pretty much miserable!
This is me at 28 weeks (can you tell I was hot and exhausted)!
Everything is going well with Denver. He is a big boy already. He is measuring about 2 weeks ahead of schedule and at our 7 month check up they estimated that he already weighed 3.5 pounds. I've only gained 6 pounds so far, so it's not my fault! I've really been trying to watch it for both of our sakes. The Dr. thought that maybe it was due to gestational diabetes but my glucose tolerance test results came back and everything was normal, so that's not the case - he's just a big 'ol boy!
My blood pressure is always really good, but the one thing that the Dr. is not happy with is my swelling. I took fluid pills before getting pregnant because I've always had issues with retaining water (even if I drink a lot of water), but since I can't take the pills AND it's so hot - I have no ankles and my feet are huge. Attractive, huh? It's getting to where at the end of the day my toes don't even touch the floor and my feet just throb!
I come home every evening and sit in a recliner with my feet up which helps some, but not near enough. I'm ready for the summer to be over, for sure! D started putting Denver's changing table together tonight and this coming weekend we are (hoping) going to get the rest of his furniture put together. September will be here before we know it!

I love your belly bump photo! You look SO good!

It has been freaking hotter than normal lately! I've started not leaving the house until my evening class because it's so warm.
