Two summers ago I worked a long side a pregnant reporter in Atlanta, Georgia. She was very pregnant… And running around in high heels, I don’t know how she did it! She told me to avoid getting pregnant in the summer months… Or being super pregnant in the summer months I should say.
This memory struck me the other day and got me thinking about when the perfect time of year is to have a baby. What are things to consider? Weather? A tax write off? Are boys or girls more prone during a certain time of year? Zodiac signs for sure need to be considered.
I’m a Capricorn myself and some of my best friends are Cappis. Hubby is a Scorpio, they are great but a little shy sometimes and I’m hoping for an outgoing kid so I should probably stay away from a November baby.
The summers are hot in Austin, I’d prefer not to be super hot while I’m the size of a whale already, but I hate the cold too and I really don’t want to feel uncomfortable! Plus you can go swimming all summer… But I’m not sure who would want to see my pregnant belly at a pool!
Man, there’s so much to consider! Do you know of many superstitions or have opinions on the best time of year to be pregnant/have a baby?
And for my new readers, unbeknown to my sarcasm… I’m kidding (kind of).
