  • Winter. I was pregnant in the summer and felt like a big, sweaty elephant, lol! :)

  • Summer. I've been pregnant in winter (Due date was the 8th of this month) and seriously wearing a winter coat ontop of a huge belly is horrible. Mainly while trying to tote around two toddlers. It's not easy. Plus, getting around the snow, ice, and just plain cold is miserable anytime let alone at 9months pregnant.

    Summer I could walk around in shorts and a "T". Go anywhere in flip flops.. The only downside I found was my feet and legs swelled soo much easier and a lot more often then they do now. Then again I'm more active now with two toddlers.

  • Defintely winter... even though this is my first pregnancy... it has been really nice to be able to go outside and feel the cool air when i get those heat flashes and feel faint. I would imagine in summer time the naturally hot pregnant body would feel extremely miserable in the hot heat of the summer.

  • Winter. DS was born in August, and I just BAKED. Luckily, we had AC. We also don't get snow, so I wouldn't have to worry about falling on ice, but I've lived where that's an issue, and I wouldn't want to deal with that, either!

  • We are trying right now and I hope to have a late fall or late spring due date to take advantage of the milder weather those last few months!

  • Summer. My son was due Aug. 26, and it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I could wear flip flops the entire summer (didn't have to worry about cramming my feet into shoes or trying to fasten my shoes or put on socks). I did swimming lessons with my 2-year-old daughter to cool off and spent a lot of time with her at the local wading pool. I wouldn't want to deal with trying to find a winter coat that would fit or worry about slipping on ice or snow.

  • I live in Texas and I've done both.

    Winter was WAY better! Holy cow...I thought I might have a heat stroke before I delivered my son!

    I had the a/c running the last month with my daughter and she was born in february! Imagine how miserable I was in the summer. DH almost went into cardiac arrest when he saw the electric bill. LOL
