Best season to have baby in?

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

So if you were to chose, would you have a baby in the spring or fall/early winter. Is it easier to recover in some seasons? Is it easier up have a new baby in summer or be pregnant throughout summer?
Or is this silly and it really doesn't matter? So far whenever we quit using condoms we get pregnant the first month, so if it happens again I sorta get to pick when to have the baby.

Leanne, I got pregnant with my first two very easily as well, and I was going to try to plan the birth month. However, God had different plans and it took me 5 months to get pregnant with our third. "Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21

When you both are in agreement, let God choose the time. It will all work out fine, no matter when the little darlin' comes.

God bless!

We have really long cold winters, so you have a good point. It's defintely harder to get out, and I can see between the cold winter and postpartum hormones it leading to the blues and depression easier. Although, like you said, I do have big time baby fever, so if/when it happens I would be happy!! :) :)
We already have 4 kids, but both hubby and I are getting baby fever!

Sarah has pretty well covered it. I have a May baby and two October babies, and I can tell you for a certain that being pregnant in the summer is NO fun! That being said, once they make their appearance, you forget (somewhat ;)) about the hot nights and just enjoy having a new little person around.

Sounds like you got 'baby fever', so I don't think you're gonna care, one way or the other.

God bless, hon

I have a summer child, a winter child, and a spring child. I liked the spring myself. I would say fall or winter is the hardest......it gets dark so fast and that can be depressing. It is cold to go outside and then you worry about taking the baby out on those REALLY cold days. There are also more germs floating around during the fall/winter so sometimes taking a newborn baby out just is not recommended. Personally I enjoy walking and where I live you can't walk in the winter outside. For my summer baby it was hot going through part of the summer really pregnant. I swelled more. The nice thing is that I did have the nice part of the fall to still be outside and the days were still staying light longer. My spring baby was my favorite......she was a May baby. so temps. were getting nice that we could be outside from the start. I enjoyed having spring, summer and part of fall to be able to be outside. By time winter started she was old enough that getting a cold or two was not so worrisome. It also worked out nice with both my job and my older kids. I was able to take the summer off and could spend that time with my kids. I was also able to get the first 3 or so weeks with just me and the baby while the older kids were still going to school allowing me to nap when baby napped. By time the older kids were done with school we were getting on a pretty good schedule. But after saying all that if I was to have a child at anytime of the year we would adjust and enjoy the blessing. :)
