what season were you the most pregnant (8-9 months)?? How was the weather for you? what did you like most/least about being so pregnant in that season? I was the most pregnant in the Summer and I hated it! It was WAY too hot! I told my boyfriend the next baby we have he has to get me pregnant in July so we can have a Spring baby. lol what about you?

I was pregnant in the month of January / Febrary. Weather was cold. Climate was fine. During the pregnant period I like to too spicy like chicken, fish etc.

That must have been nice. I would like to have a baby in March because then it's nice and cool and the next few months are spring so you don't have to worry about the cold months and sickness.

Baby! - Oh Baby!
I got pregnant in June 2005, we found out on July 17th (you never forget!). I was 8-9 months pregnant in late winter/early spring. My son Luke was born exactly on his due date, March 13th, via c-section!

You really don't forget! I found out I was pregnant on December 16th last year. I had my baby 8 days late on August 27. It was rough.

I hated being pregnant in the summer. My oldest was born at the end of June 2000. It was so freaking hot before and after that I stayed inside for almost 2 months straight. My next two were born in October 2001 and November 2002. It wasn't much better because I was still pretty big while it was hot (especially with my son who was due in october). But my last baby was born in April. I didn't have to deal with any of the heat, although trying to do holidays when you are exhausted from being pregnant has it's own drawbacks.

Oldest son and stepdaughter - children
I was always the most preggers in the winter time, and I gained the most weight over Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Oh I'm so glad I wasn't pregnant at Thanksgiving time and barely pregnant at Christmas! I would have gained more than the 45 I did gain! Pregnancy weight is so hard to shed! Thank you for your response.

My 1st child, the last trimester was in the summer and I was miserable, it was soooo hot, he was born in June. My 2nd was in the fall and it was nice, she was born in Sept. I was pregnant in the summer but not the end when you are miserable. Spring baby would be perfect but no more babies here. Got 2 and we are done.

Well once in the summer. I hated how hot it was. I am not fond of the heat to begin with. I have been pregnant twice now in the winter (well late fall I guess for one). Now it is cold with snow & ice. I have to walk my girls to & from school so the ice poses a possible problem. I am not sure when would be ideal for me to have a baby.

I'm not fond of the heat either! I hate being hot. Thank you for your response.

I've had one in Nov, one in July, and one in Dec(in that order). First one wasn't bad, I didn't really show much, so wasn't uncomfortable. Second one was kinda bad, I was bigger and it was hot out. Third was pretty bad, I gained way too much weight, & lived in FL, so was still warm-& summer time really sucked down there, was just miserable. I would definitely recommend a spring baby as well lol. Only thing you have to watch too, up North/colder climates be careful of the ice when you're bigger/lose your balance easier.

Eww I couldn't do it in Florida! It's way too muggy. I don't have to worry about ice. It doesn't really get icey on the grounds over here in California. :)

I was still pregnant during summer time, I was sweating like a hog. even though I just took a shower I will still be sweating.
• United States

I know and doesn't that just make you feel nasty? Getting out of the shower to start sweating immediately afterward?

I have 3 kids and I was the most pregnant in the winter with all of them. 2 are winter babies and 1 is a spring baby. I loved all of my pregnancies. I had complications with premature labor but was able to control all of them and had them all full term. I loved feeling them move around in my belly, the kicks, the hiccups, and the occasional spin. The last 2 weeks are the worst. I couldn't wait for them to come out, but when my little ones finally arrived, I wished they were back in me. I felt so empty without my little one inside me. To all you ladies who can't stand or don't like to be pregnant, my advice to you is enjoy it while you can. Birth and LIFE is a miracle! It is you who is bringing a brand new life into this world. Love them with all your heart.

I was also the most pregnant in the summer. It was awful. It was so humid, everytime you walked outside it was like being under a wet blanket. It was very uncomfortable.

I was also the most pregnant in the hot summer months (July and August) and it was miserable! What's worse is that our A/C in our apartment quit working on 3 seperate occasions! I stayed at my parents' house each time until they went and fixed it...just to have it break again!

Yes I remember the swelling! I think the only good thing about having your baby in the summer is that they don't get sick from it being too cold! Thanks for your response.

With 2 of my babies I was pregnant during the summer months and it was miserable. But it was well worth it. LOL

Oh man you had to be that pregnant in the Summer TWICE?? I don't think I could do it again. I was miserable!

I was the most pregnant and gave birth in August. I had problems with swelling. Otherwise, during the winter, I'm kind-of clutzy and have a tendency to slip on the ice a lot, so I was glad it worked out that way.

When in August did you give birth? I had my baby on August 27.

All of my children were winter babies. 1st one was born in November, 2 and 3 4 days after Christmas and number 4 was in Feb. Where I live in the winters we get in the 30's but not much worse then that. So I just put on a sweater or sweat shirt and I was ok.

Geez, if the winters are so cold there I would think you would be conceiving more at that time than having them! :) Thank you for your response.
