    I got pregnant in the fall and delivered the next summer. I was really hot all the time while pregnant, and the bulk of my pregnancy was during the colder months. I delivered right at the beginning of summer and had great workout-the-baby-weight weather. It was great!

    So I got pregnant in this fall and Im due in July.  And to be honest, its been a breeze.  Id rather not be heavuly pregnant during the winter bc I dont want to layer all those clothes.  Dressing has been super easy since I started showing.  Also, since Im due in July, Ill be on  maternity leave for all of August, September, and October, which to me are the best months to be out of work.  At least then I wont be cooped up in the house (as I would be if I were due in the winter) and will be back in bikini shape by next summer =o)

    Definitly not winter! I got pregnant in December and Jan-March SUCKED! But I hate that time anyway, so it may just be me. I’m liking being pregnant during the summer.

    So fo sho, I say the summer. Yes, it’s hot as hell down here, but it’s hot as hell anyway down here.LOL That’s why you don’t go outside til evening, night. I like wearing these sundresses and slip on sandals. So much easier to get dressed and it’s like wearing a nightgown, but it’s cute!LOL

    If you are lucky enough to be pregnant during the summer, be prepared for ppl to constantly say “Oh, you haveto go the whole summer! Stay cool!” Yeah, it will begin to annoy you. Trust me.

    oh and btw- “Cute” Maternity sundresses are hard to come by lol.  I can give you some shopping tips, but I order most of my stuff online and buy a size or two up at places like Ann Taylor/Loft and Gap, etc.

    I’d hate to have to wear sweaters in the winter when I already felt huge and bulky, but then again, I delivered in late August and from June on I was miserable. My feet were always swollen from the heat, and FH gave me so much shit for wearing my hair in a ponytail all the time but it was UNBEARABLE! I was vindicated when we took the tour of the hospital and I pointed out to him that 8 of the 10 women were wearing ponytails. And the one girl didn’t count because her hair was too short to put in a ponytail ANYWAY.

    I got pregnant in August and had the baby in May.  It was perfect because she didn’t get sick at all this winter since she was older when RSV season came around.

    @ohheavenlyday: LOL! I just cut my hair short, about 3 inches long. That hair gets irritating after a while out there!

    I’m in my 3rd month and keep wishing it were winter time right now so I could cover up my bump MUCH easier! Luckily I usually wear a sweater at my desk since I’m always cold, but I can’t comfortably layer like I would in the winter. If you are the type to wait the 12+ weeks to make your announcement to the world then I think your first trimester in the late fall/winter would be ideal 😉  Maybe that’s just me.

    Oh, this thread reminds me- friends of mine got pregnant and the timing was so that they had the ultrasound done to determine the sex of their baby on like December 20th or something. So they waited to read the results until December 25th as their “Christmas present.” CUTEEEEEEEE. It was a boy. That would be fun to do, if you were 18-20 weeks pregnant around Christmas. LOL.

    I’ve never been pregnant but knowing many people who have they say avoid the hot uncomfortable summer months. But on that same note I have had parents say to go through the hot summer months yourself so your babies first months aren’t hot, uncomfortable and full of crying.

    I think I’d just like to NOT be super pregnant during the winter because you need so many more clothes then!
