    I’m due in Feb, and I think it’s pretty good.  Only issue is going to be how hectic it gets around the holidays and being 8 months pregnant!

    I’d say ideal would be spring – April-May time.  That way it’s over with before the hot months.  My cousin and a few friends have all said being pregnant (REALLY pregnant) during the summer is the worst.

    I voted November.  I’ve always wanted a November baby! 

    I am a February baby and I HATED it growing up.  No one wants to go out and do anything fun in the middle of a snowy, cold, WI winter.

    I was born in November, but I always thought to myself that I did not want to pregnant during summer.  I ended up getting pregnant in August and am due in May.  I think I did pretty good timing!

    I’m due in June and I think thats ideal. I will be pregnant over the winter which is fine, I don’t like like going outside in the cold anyway! And my baby will be born and immune system developing before the winter of germs starts.

    I haven’t been pregnant yet, but I was born in January and my sister was born in September. My mom said being SUPER pregnant in the summer was awful, so if I could choose I would avoid that!

    @doxielove:  My husband also hates his February birthday.

    I’m due the first week in January which I think kinda sucks for baby – Following the holidays and all but for being pregnant its been pretty awesome! I was small through the summer and getting bigger while its getting cold out. Plus I can enjoy the holidays treats without too much guilt 🙂

    My birthday is late May and I love having a spring birthday! Plus sometimes it falls on a holiday weekend woo hoo.

    @Annie624:  Yeah it really stunk as a kid.  No one’s parents wanted to drive anywhere for a party in the snow. 

    Such a lame complaint, I know lol.

    I think May/June is perfect. You get to go on a babymoon in March when the weather sucks and you want to get out of town, you dont have to buy a winter coat to accomodate your bump, and you’re not huge when its 8 million degrees in August.

    This depends.. but I highly recommend reading the book ‘Outliers’. It has a whole chapter on children and timing and how to give your children the best opportunities in life. I have read the book once and will read it again when we start planning to have kids, and then after we have kids I’ll probably read it again!! 

    Take everything you read with a grain of salt, but I think it’s a very good book and absolutely worth a read!

    Here’s a good article with a preview of the book: http://www.pluginid.com/malcolm-gladwell-outliers/
