  • I couldn't care less when I'm pregnant, as long as I have a healthy baby!

  • My son was born in July and I felt like a fat sweaty pig all the time. Plus I had MAJOR swelling and I think the heat made it worse. I had beyond canckles. My legs were swollen up to my thighs!

  • my first was due on xmas and my second was due mid aug. i thought it was MUCH harder being in the third trimester during the most humid and hot time of the year. when not pregnant i get cold easily and love the heat, but while pregnant i just couldn't get comfortable in the summer, and couldn't sleep. of course i think it depends where you live and what month you're due. i think any trimester but the last would be tolerable during the summer.

  • I would say for your last trimester to be in the winter... i had an august baby and i was so miserable... i lived in our swimming pool..

  • I had my son in August of 08 - I was MISERABLE. I was totally swollen and had worse than cankles too, so the 'cute summer dress' was NOT an option, lol! I was hot, sweaty, huge, ugh - just plain miserable. I defnitely hope to do my third trimester in any other season besides summer. You don't know hot til you are 9 months pregnant in 90 degree whether.

  • IMO. Get pregnant in the summer and then when your getting big pregnant, it will be winter. Being big pregnant in the summer is terrible.
