I wish someone would answer. I am almost 23w pregnant and this summer will probably be miserable. Our tiny parish rarely runs the a/c and even when they do, it's still pretty hot. I usually dress casually for mass though when I'm pregnant and it's hot...capris, cotton tops, flip flops, nothing inappropriate but just more comfortable. I don't do it often but I will take a bottle of cold water to drink when I know it's going to be unbearable and if I get nauseous or lightheaded, I sit down and sometimes I just walk outside to get some air.
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
Hey I am lurking but I will probably join in here more often if there is regular threads.
I had the same problem when I was pregnant. I coulnt sit by anyone because the slightest odor (perfume, hairspray, anything) set me off. I also couldnt kneel because it cut blood flow and I would get dizzy and need to throw up.
What I have learned is to do what you need to do. I would go to the mass with the least amount of people and try to get a whole pew to myself. I also had to get up a lot of time and go to the bathroom for air and water. Dont feel bad.
Yeah, since I stepped down as host forever ago and since JM gets less popular there just isn't regular posting. I wish there still was, I love having an area for Catholic mommies, though I have a newish one on facebook, but it isn't as general as this is.
