    We didn’t really care when the baby came, we just wanted her asap! I had miscarried already so we wanted to try as soon as the doctor would let me. I wouldn’t have been happy waiting.

    That being said, I ended up being super pregnant in the middle of summer in Fl, so that kind of sucked. But if I could do it over I’d do it the same way, I wouldn’t want to have waited any longer to meet my baby girl!

    No, after trying for so long I was just grateful to get pregnant.  Sure, we’ll probably be missing a family wedding we have been looking forward to, but I will happily take our little boy any month of the year!

    With my second child I ABSOLUTELY did not want to be pregnant during the summer months because I was miserable for the entire summer when first child was born in late August.  Also, my ten year class reunion was coming up and I did not want to attend that while being pregnant.  So, at the beginning of the summer I told my then husband we had till August 31st to get pregnant.  I wasn’t pregant on that date and then husband pulled out the calendar and convinced me we could try till September 30th and I still wouldn’t be pregnant in the summer.  Baby girl was conceived that month and born June 7th the following year.  Had she not been conceived that month we would have waited till the next spring to try again.

    My best friend/maid of honor began trying in July 2010 but said that if she wasn’t preggers by October 2010 that they would hold off and stop trying until the next spring because she didn’t want to be SUPER pregnant/ about to pop at my wedding! (her choice, not mine! I wouldn’t have cared either way, but she just didn’t want to feel terrible and have lots to do!) Fortunately, it all worked out and she pretty much got pregnant right away- So her sweet little 10 week old will be an honorary flower girl at my wedding!

    We aren’t TTC but I know my Fiance doesn’t want a baby born in december. His bday is obnoxiously close to christmas and he feels like he got ‘screwed out of gifts’ because of the double gifting that goes on for xmas babies!

    @Miss Marine: oh my gosh that’s cute =D I know a girl who got pregnant (Total accident, she was in the process of a divorce- woops) and her sister FREAKED out because the pregnant girl would be about 8.5 months pregnant at the sister’s own wedding. She accused her of ‘planning it out to steal her thunder with a huge baby bump’ and uninvited her to the wedding! Bridezilla much? =O

    I’m with 2ndtime.. I had DS at the end of August and I did NOT want to be big & pregnant through the summer again… which starts in May for us & seems to be getting hotter and hotter each year (we’ve had weeks consecutive 100+ degrees)… Having ms with the heat has been bad enough but I couldn’t imagine being huge with it like this again… Thankfully I’m due Mar/Apr =)

    We didn’t plan it but I’m glad I’ll be huge in the winter/spring. I’m due in April and the only negative to that is she/he will ve on the younger side in their class which sucks when you get to high school (getting your license) and college (turning 21).

    We have been TTC for 13 months and are now doing ferility testing. I will just be happy to get pregnant and have a baby, when it is born doesn’t matter in the slightest.

    I’m due in Sept and after a year of TTC, I’m just happy I can get pregnant. I don’t hate any month, but I am glad I wasn’t pregnant in winter. I hate winter with a vengance and it’s depressing as hell. Last thing I’d want added to it was being huge and being stuck inside the house. Summer has been hot, but the only thing I’ve been upset about is missing my yearly cruise. (You can’t cruise past 24wks.)

    If I could plan a month, I would do another spring baby or early summer.   I wouldn’t want to have a baby in December, I find that my nephew’s birthday gets blended into Christmas.   But, if I still am not pregnant in a few months and get pregnant and due in Dec, I will take it!

    I don’t see that I would care either way. I was preggers in the summer heat, and it wasn’t bad at all. I got to hide in the air conditioning at home. Also, i think being preggers during xmas time would be very magical for some reason.
