What did you like more, being in the 3rd trimester in winter or summer

I had my dd in September so I was big and pregnant all through the summer. I liked it b/c I go to show off my belly bump alot I got to wear shorts..it was nice, but I live in Houston texas so it was 90 degrees + everyday...that was hard. and we were remodling so we didn't have central cooling that was even harder.... I only have one child, dd who is 1,

I would like to know your opinions: what did you like better winter or summer in your 3rd trimester

  • I would rather be ready to pop in the winter where I would grow through the fall. I hated being hot and sweaty and enormous through the summer with our first. Our second was born in June and it was a little better.

  • I had my son in September, and I swore to myself, NEVER AGAIN. I hated being pregnant in the heat of summer... It didn't help that I work in a place with no A/C (and 100+ temperatures in the summer), and live in a house with no A/C. I felt like I was constantly dripping with sweat, and I was swollen all over... I spent every free minute in the hot tub behind our house, with the heat turned off. It was torture!

    I'm pregnant again, and this one is due in April, so I don't have to worry about it this time, yay!

  • Winter! With my first, I was due in October. I worked in Galveston and lived in Houston at the time. I was swollen and miserable for the entire last trimester. If I was outside for any length of time during that summer, I would almost pass out. I intentionally planned #2 as a winter or spring baby; an April baby made for a much better last trimester. We lived in Fort Worth with #2, so I was able to hide Easter Eggs while it was snowing and be the only one not freezing.

  • I've only been in my third trimester during the winter (Dec and Jan babies!) and I don't think I would like it any other way. While I wouldn't mind being able to wear a sundress every once in a while, I am SO not into being hot. I can't imagine how cranky I'd be if I was waddling around in 90-degree heat with that much extra weight on me!
