I love being pregnant and after a while of not knowing if it would happen, I was thrilled for those lines to turn positive, even if it wasn’t the most ideal time. It may sound strange to say that because, yes we were trying for almost a year and a half and I was on fertility medications to make it happen, but being due in December was not our “ideal”.
My older son was born in December and my two girls both were born in February. The way things are looking, Baby S will be born within days (if not the day of) my older son’s birthday, which is not the worst thing ever, but still not the best. So, I will have two boys with birthdays in December and two girls with birthdays in February. Add in all the holiday stuff in between and that time of year has become insanely chaotic.
I’m not dwelling on it by any means, but it’s funny that’s the way it has all worked out.
There is one mega bonus (other than the healthy baby no matter when he’s due) which is getting to be pregnant in the fall season. It’s my personal favorite time to gestate and with these 12 big reasons, I bet you’ll be convinced it’s the best season for pregnancy as well.
