  • i totally know how you feel!! I feel the same way, and I just had my daughter in July. The one thing you have to remember is your body needs 10 months to fully recover from having a baby. but if you wait until spring to try and get pregnant again, then youll have your winter baby!!

  • I have a winter baby (January), I got pregnant in April, so I would wait a few months and then try. Your body needs some time to recover completely.

  • great question!! I've been contemplating the same thing!! I'm waiting until March to go off BC simply so I don't have another summer baby.. and if we don't conceive by June I'll go back on and hope for next year!! I don't have any advice, but good luck!

  • I would wait till early Spring, and time it the way you want to. both of my children were summer babies, (July and August;) and I refused to go through the summer all huge and hot and uncomfortable!!!! I purposely got pregnant in August, and am due at the end of April... sometimes you really can plan them, thank the Lord!

  • I really want a summer baby b/c Im in school and wouldnt have to take time off but now since we missed that deadline we are trying for a winter baby hopefully have it in dec. cuz i have that whole month off. I am due to graduate next year. GOOD LUCK!!!!

  • LOL my neice and nephew are 10mths apart, guess who didn't wait. Thats not a good thing though (physically for your cervics and uterus). Now some doctors differ, they feel great if you want to have another baby, but some doctors have said wait as little as 1 year and (depending on how many kids and how big they were) 2 years to get your body back on track. So, I would take a leap of faith of the middle, or whatever you want. Because its your body and you are the one who has to know if you are ready. But the faster you concieve to the last one, just put you in a little bit of a higher risk. Good Luck!!
