OK so up until recently I always thought I wanted a summer baby. My mom has seasonal affective disorder, depression,PTSD, etc and while I do believe that I have never had a full blown bought with depression I know that I do gravitate towards it, and that like many people I am more depressed in the winter. I also know that my chances are a bit higher to have postpartum depression which I would like to avoid.
So those were all reasons for me to want a summer baby (besides the fact that I just like summer LOL, and it doesn't get very hot here so it wouldn't necessarily be uncomfortable for me even at 8-9 months- at least not because of the heat LOL) But lately I have been thinking that you don't really do anything with a baby until it is a few months old and that I won't want the baby to start walking/able to do things in the height of rainy cold season here. Then on the other hand it would be fun to have a first birthday party that included grilling, mixed drinks, and sunshine...
So how is everyone else deciding when they want to try? Whenever both people are ready who cares which month? When it will be best for the job? Or what else?
For BTDT moms when did you have your child(ren) and what was good and bad about the season? Obviously this doesn't work too well if you are one of the lucky ones who lives somewhere with an awesome mild climate the whole year round:)
And I am sure that whenever Thomas agrees I will be like season be damned, lets start!!!! But it is still fun to semi-plan LOL.
