What's the best time of year to have a baby?
When planning for a baby, the time of year the baby is born can have an impact on your comfort, your child's education, and many other things. Is there a best time to have a baby?
I guess we never thought about what time of year was best to have all 5 of our sons. We had one in October, three in march, and one if Feb. I would have not done it any other way. as for my comfort it really did not matter, I was hot, and swelled no matter what time of the year. My sons, now 32,30, 28, 22 and 17 are fantastic sons, and wonderful men. So it really does not matter when you have them, it is what you do with them after you have them.
The best time is your OWN choice.
it's good to plan for a baby, but thee is no particular time or best time to have a baby, unless you are a travelling person. okey it is also important to consider the climate becoz when preganant and it's too hot, there is lot of discomfort.
I prefer March to early June. That way you arent pregnant in the summer or couped up inside in he dead of winter with a new baby. School wise they wont be the youngest or oldest. I had both my girls in May which I planned. ;)
it is not the question of when but it is the question of: are u mentally prepared, emotionally prepared and financially prepared; and if the answer of all the above is YES then go ahead and enjoy motherhood ... :-)
spring!!!! not to hot not to cold :) but both of mine were born in the summer in arizona... way too hot!
Best time is when baby say its time
I had my daughter in early May. So I lucked out and didn't have to deal with the heat at all. I suggest August if it can be worked! lol
If you can get away with not being HUGE during the summer, you will feel better that is for sure!! But I couldn't avoid it with our son, and I won't be able to avoid it with this new pregnancy!! lol. Just be ready to love the ac, eat a ton of Popsicle s, visit the pool often, etc. I wish I could have been huge in the winter which is just approaching! but i'll take what God has given. I hate the heat right now!
I learnt the hard way, that conception doesn't happen easily, the first month of trying for my 2nd was timed but that doesn't mean my body was ready
what are the chance of you falling pregnant? my first was conceived the first month we tried, my second took 18 month's before i conceived. if i wanted to have my baby's at a specific time of the year the window for trying would be smaller and that would mean years of trying, not month's.
i didn't want another December baby, more so my 1st didn't have to share his birthday, but that didn't mean i stopped trying to prevent it happening.
Just think if you conceive in june, you will only be a little pragnant though the hot months, and you can eat what you want in oct, nov, dec and jan. Plus everyone can and will take care of you during the holiday season. Good Luck and have fun :)
I had my son in March and liked being pregnant during the winter.
Not sure I could have handeled Texas summers beeing pregnant!
I've had a spring baby and a fall baby. I WOULD think that the spring baby would be best since I HATE being hot and you can cover up with lots of clothes (my ankles were embarrassingly HUGE!) but....I had a wonderfully cool summer pregnancy, loved my summer maternity clothes and wearing flip flops for my huge feet (again). We spent a lot of time at the pool which was nice to relieve some of the achiness and weight and I wasn't so worried about slipping on ice! I spent my winter snuggling my fall baby and we got a great carseat cover that kept her warm all winter for outings, with my spring baby I felt it was too hot to do much that first summer so we stayed in a lot and snuggled in the air conditioning. My spring baby boy is always the last to turn the same age as everyone else in his class and my fall baby girl will have the choice to wait to start kindergarten and will have her birthday at the beginning of the school year. I hope that helps you!
If you can plan it, have your baby in the winter. You can snuggle up and stay warm. Summer is just too stinking hot.
I had 3 cuddly winter bubs which I loved and wasn't sure whether I would have nursed them quite as much had it been sticky and hot. Now that they are preparing for school I have had discussions with many mums beside myself, questioning whether to send them 'early' or 'late'. A June- Dec would make that an easy decision, not having to worry about holding them back or repeating them later on. A blessing of course, whenever they arrive!
Everyone is right, but if you really want to plan and you live somewhere hot you might not want to be 9 mos. pregnant in the raging heat. That happened to me and it was very divvicult - I remember I almost pased out at the bank. Or you might want to think about baby's first Christmas and how old the little one will be at that time, if that is important for you. Or if you do a big holiday in the summer, a newborn would be more difficult than an older baby. So just put your thinking cap on.
My two each took nine months to get pregnant, so timing was not of the utmost importance though both were fall babies. Though I was bigger through the summer months, I wasn't as morning sick as the spring months, and I would take size over nausea in the summer any time. At the same time, I sure do love my May birthday!
For me, anytime is the best time of year! For others, though, there may be one time that is better than others. If you know that you can get pregnant easily, you can plan around your family's needs - current birthdays and the like. However, if you are trying to get pregnant, just let nature take its course. Very few women deliver their babies on their due date - it's not an exact prediction.
Pick your favorite time of year and then go from there!
I'd say spring? Or the New Year!
one of the silliest Questions ever!!!! what if one gets preg n the baby is not planned ufff!!!!
doesnt matter for me although these days people seem to be thinking of when to start their little ones at school, so if that matters october through to march :-) otherwise whenever if you're lucky!!
Winter is best for late pregnancy, because you feel hot, not like moving and the clothes are bulky. Spring births make you feel alive and getting back into the energetic groove afterwards is easier. Four of my 6 kids were Spring births. I home school, so age in the school year is not an issue.
