Heat and pregnancy
I am in the dessert right now and it is 135 to 140 degrees everyday.  I also carry about 45 extra lbs of gear.  I just found out I am 5 weeks.  Am I going to hurt the baby?

Yes drink plenty of liquids!! Do not over exert yourself especially in those temperatures the first three months are the most important (well so are the rest)
get someone else to carry the gear
My question is what are you doing out there??How did you find out you were pregnant in the dessert??

I am intrigued too...what is this gear you carry?  Yeah, the first three months are pretty sensitive and you don't want to miscarry.  If it's for work that you have to carry the gear, your doc shoudl give you a note to get out of it.
