I counted 10 months out from Sept/oct and was happy to calculate that I’ll be having a summer baby!! I LOVE summer, and my first child’s birth is going to make me love it even more.
I know I’ll be SUPER hot during those last few months, sweating my big fat pregnant ass off, but I was really glad to see that the time-frame when I will have to go to the doctor every other week to every week will be nice and warm. I don’t want to be freezing cold with slippery black ice on the ground trying to navigate my way to appointments and risking slips and falls. I won’t have to put on heavy winter gear to head to the hospital or pack big clothes in my hospital bag! Oooh and I’ll be able to do some outdoor newborn pics!
I also thought how nice it will be to have outdoor birthday parties for my little guy or gal. (visions of bounce-houses danced through my head). Then I realized my little one will never have in-school b-day parties. I’ll never bring in cupcakes to BabyH’s class for him/her. 🙁 Downer.
I know this is a super small thing in the whole pregnancy picture but it is tons of fun to think about. Of course if we have an oopsie baby or have difficulty getting pregnant my summer baby plan goes right out the window. ::sigh::
My fingers are crossed for a summer baby!
(ps – sidebar ticker says 6months 3weeks till TTC time! I’m just sayin.)
Did you plan when you’d get pregnant to avoid a certain time of year? Was this ever a consideration for you or am I alone in my crazy?
