I purposely got pregnant in January. Starting your pregnancy in January means:
You'll be the most pregnant in summer.
On the surface this sounds like a horrible thing, but being the biggest in the summer means spending way less money on maternity clothes than you would in the winter. Maternity clothes are expensive, and the more fabric you need to clothe yourself, the more expensive they're going to be. There is no need to buy maternity outerwear or sweaters when you're pregnant in the summer. I was able to stretch many of my summer dresses into maternity dresses. Also, flip flops. By the end of my pregnancy the only shoes I could fit were my flip flops, I don't know what I would have done if I needed to wear closed shoes.
You'll start breastfeeding in colder months.
This is going to come in handy because you can get away with draped and heavy fabrics in the cooler months which can help you cover up while feeding if needed, and hide those wacky breast pads or surprise leaks.
You'll still be bundled up while you lose the baby weight.
I was glad to have a few months before I had to be in a tank top again. These fall/winter months gave me a chance to shed some of the baby weight before less clothes and thinner fabrics were a must.
No matter what month you get pregnant in, you get a baby at the end, and that is spectacular.
I love baby yawns.
When did you get pregnant? What were the advantages of the time frame?
