  • July/August is the best time to get pregnant IMO. That way you are not huge in the summer and the baby is born several months before flu season. The baby will be born in April/May.

  • For me September. I'm a teacher, and my baby is due at the end of the school year. :)

  • I think July-ish, and have the baby in April-ish. Mostly because of the hot flashes. I had my first in June, and even though summer technically hadn't started yet, those third-trimester hot flashes were killer. Much easier to handle in the mild spring weather (I had my second in April).

  • Summer that way the baby is born in spring.  If you have your baby in the spring then you aren't real big during the hot summer months so you're more comfortable. Also babies start walking around a year and the clothes in the spring and summer are easier for them to get around in, and birthday gifts are easier because they are in need of  summer things by then.

  • I think around august. I have one son born in Feb. and one in April and it's nice to get taxes back right before their birthdays! Also you don't have to be pregnant during the summer heat!

  • I agree with those above, Pregnant in July/August, deliver April/May.
