beach

everyone's pretty much making me feel like **** cos I wanna go to the beach tomorow. it's suppose to be 92, where I'm at. I know I can't have my tummy exposed for too long, and I need to put enough sunscreen ( which I have whenever I go to the beach ) and stay plenty hydrated
does it make me a bad mom to wanna go ? when there's no ac in my house and being by the water won't be as hot. plus I can actually go IN the water, and not stay in te sun so long ?
I really have been sitting here for a good almost hr crying my eyes out, cos everyone's making it seen like I don't care about my son.

It's perfectly fine to go to the beach.  Go and have fun!  Just take lots of water and snacks.  Take a beach umbrella like baby1forme suggested otherwise find a tree or some other source for shade if available.

Thats silly yes you can go to the beach. You shouldn't feel bad about that. Like you said stay hydrated and maybe take an umbrella so you have some shade.

apparently I don't care about my baby bcos I wanna go on a hot day :-/ I know what to do to keep myself safe. and I know when too much is too much. it just upsets me, that my entire pregnancy, this is one thing I realllllly wanna do and I basically get hated for it. that's what feels like is going on anyways.

Those that are judging you, need to find something better to do.  I went to the beach with my second (she was born Aug) almost everyday otherwise we were outside sitting in the heat playing in the sprinkler.  You can't put yourself in a body bubble just cause you're pregnant.  I don't get people sometimes.

Exactly, I understand their only looking out. but it's too a point where their words are hurtful to me.
I'm just dying to finally go swimming !
