whens the cutest time to get preggo?

IT'S OFFICIAL.

I'm pretty sure we're not seeing what happens anymore bc I'm just realizing August would be like the grossest time to have a baby. I'd get all sweaty in Summer and in Sept there is seriously no where to go showoff in a modest bikini so what's the point right??

Not to be selfish, just trying to be real.

So dead-on it's alarming. I swear to you I've read this and/or had this conversation a hundred times. "Ew, you're due in Sept? Poor planning!"

Like babies are hair appointments.

Moniker Challenged said...

I assume summer's "tango" season for the Moridor, because every blog I've seen lately has someone delivering between March and June.

Chelsea said...

Thank you so much for letting us all know you are now having unprotected sex.

anna jo said...

I just had a baby in september and seriously couldn't go show off in my modest bikini anywhere! way sad.

Meags said...

And then if the baby WAS born in August, she'd be the youngest one in her class at school. Not fun!

The Boob Nazi said...

So I should shelve my super cute baby shower plan??? I was totes ready to give you one!

Jen said...

Um, sorry you didn't realize this on your own, but August is a perfect time to be cute preggo and wear your modest bikini to show off your adorable little belly. Just sayin.

Jenni said...

I have actually heard women say this. Scary. I love you.

I rilly don't think you should limit this decision making process to cuteness. Clearly July and August are out of the question for hotness reasons (Surely you will be cute the instant your darling pocket of cuddles pops out of your ladybusiness so we don't need to worry about that). June is no good because you'll probably have a billion weddings to attend and there is no way you could outshine the bride in a maternity dress. Being barely showing would be good because you could steal attention while still bean cute.

Isn't september your birthday? You don't want attention taken away from that, how seriously yuckers! Likewise december or early January -- while it would be nice to consolidate gifts for the kids, you don't want selfish family members giving you baby stuff as though YOU needed a layette. So hear is what I'm seeing as peak baby having months:

October (as long as you're willing to rock the preggo belly bikini during the summer, which would be like BEING one of those midriff photos of bellies ALL DAY LONG).

February as long as it isn't on the 13,14 or 15th. Either about to pop or just had a baby are both good times to really milk valentime's day but think ahead -- do you want a Barney birthday ruining romance forever? Plusses: You could give your child darling original seasonal names like Hart, Rosie, Valentine etc.

March-May are all fine because there will be plenty of cute eastery type stuff available for people to buy your kids so they are the sweetest pastel angels ever. Also if you have a daughter you won't accidentally have her birthday conflict with her ideal wedding date.

Altho I can tell you the best time to HAVE a baby, I couldn't figure out which is the best time to {consieve} one because math is not my strong suite. Get JJWT to figure it out then run the figures past another person in case he's just trying to get some lovin'.

Anne said...

Whatev, TAMN. You can totally wear a modest bikini preggo, and you have WAY bigger boobs to show off. Also, who wants to be all pasty white in their hospital photo? Hello, the end of summer is perfect for the cutest delivery ever.

Pam C. said...

Usually when people who have been "seeing what happens" decide to use protection, it's too late...

MomBabe said...

I think you're going about this all wrong. Everyone knows the ideal spacing is exactly 18 months apart. That way, when the twinsies go to nursery "officially", you still get out of Sunday school because you'll have a darling new baby to take care of. I mean, everyone knows that Sunday school is the worst part of church.

Heather and Tyler said...

June and July are the best times ever to get preggo! You aren't showing during the summer so no prob with the bikini situation. And you have the baby in March or April so it is perfect time for you to get ready for the next bikini season. Plus you don't have to be sweaty and gross because that part of the 9 months is in the winter...PERFECT!

Rebecca said...

Mhana you are hilarious!.

Kamity said...

HAHAHAHA. My hubby and I had this discussion last night.

Jess said...

Sometimes I read these just for Mhana's comments. Sorry, TAMN :)

The Bradley's said...

Just to think - a little while ago you were worried about infertilities and now you're narrowing it down to a specific month! AMAZING!!!

heather said...

But if you had to be preggers over the summer everyone could get a really good look at how cute & tiny you are even 7 & 8 months along because of course you'd still be going to Pal n' stuff. Plus, you could totally win the "I've got it the very worst, but I'm so grateful" conversations.

Meagan Spaulding said...

Seriessly, I think that May is the BEST time to get preggo. I mean, you still have the sweet body to wear modest bakinis in the summer, and then your baby comes in like... Feb so you have loads of time 2 get back into modest swim-wear shape by summer!

Kathleen said...

Uh, TAMN? Not to be rude or anything, but why are you even talking about this when New Moon is coming out in a week? I hope you have your tickets already. It would be so embarrassing if you forgot! {frownsmile}

Jensen said...

TAMN, I think Mhana is definitely your bestest e-bff. She is right on. My May baby was perfect. My morning after Christmas baby...well, we are still trying to figure out how to give her Christmas AND birthday separate. Our next baby is due in June. Not too bad, but March thru May is the way to go if you can plan it. One important thing to remember though--in Utah your kid has to be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1st in order to start kindergarten. So if you have a Sept-Dec baby, you'll have to wait until they're practically 6 for them to start free babysitting, I mean school. I know you'll make the right choice.

Brian and chelsea said...

I'm just rilly glad Costco is still kicking trash in the poll on the left side bar. Though I'm not sure what inspired the making of this poll. Can anyone clue me in?

Mrs. Dew said...

that is SO funny that you posted that b/c we are "seeing what happens" too and I always said I don't want to be HUGE pregnant in the dead heat of summer!

Jonny and Carissa said...

I had my baby in august and it was awesome cuz I got to show off my sexy baby bump in a totally modest bikini. and since I totally didn't get fat, it was hot, not gross like those beached whale prego ladies...

lol

THE HYMAS FAMILY said...

I'll never have another summer baby if I can help it. The end of May is as far as I will go into the year for birthing a babe. Or maybe it would be fun to have a brand new baby for the holidays in November or December. But June-Oct? Way too hot.

Jenny said...

Trust me TAMN. I had a baby Aug 29 and it was the worst to be preggers all summer long. Get back on birth control before its too late. Spring or early summer is always the best.

Little Lovables said...

You are so good to see the light on this one.

Prolly the inspiration that made you realize this.


Both my babies are late fall/early winter, we totally avoided the huge summer thing (but we're in Texas so there... only AZ people would be worse off)

JenB said...

You SWEAT?! No way! My Utah friends told me it only happen to us yucky east coast people! {*pout*}

keighty said...

Careful, TAMN. It's always when you say, "I would plan that better" that you end up finding that pretty little plus sign on your pee stick. After seeing my friend MISERABLE last summer, I said, "Man, I'm gonna plan that so I'm huge in the winter." Open mouth. Insert foot.

kmmclain said...

Don't you show much sooner when on your second pregnancy?

Mrs. Clark said...

Best posts EVER.

Emily said...

Wait. You're birthday is in September, so YOU'RE mom was preggo during the summer?

...

Gross. Nowonder Lynzii was cuter than you. I bet she was born in May.

Wells said...

What's everyone else in your ward planning? Like Lynzii? Because in our RS, people ask "who wants to get pregnant with me next month?" so they can be pregnant/nursing together. And those kind of relationships are 4ever, ya know? So very important to consider if your baby will have friends in nursery!

Brooke said...

Wells -- PLEASE tell me you're exaggerating!!

Mrs.EBG said...

Ugh, ya... I'm seriously not as smart as you... all 3 of my kiddos are August babies... we are now on a "do not touch" policy from the last week of October through the first week of December {just to be extra super careful}.
Not to mention, you totally need to sport your modest bikini EVERYWHERE next Summer...

marcie said...

I nominate Mhana to guest post on this blog... you can call her whatever you want (your bff, your e-bff, your sister who hijacked the blog) I seriously don't care, but I think she'd make a great guest poster, however you wanna twist that into this crazy dead-on blog you got going here.

I really do have to agree with Jess though, that I love to read what Mhana is going to write... sometimes I think that the person commenting as Mhana must ALSO be TAMN because of how convoluted her mind is and is able to come up with such accurately mocking comments.

Frau said...

TAMN, not to be bossy but just a warning. I know so many couples who decided not to try and then got preggo anyways. It's like pregnancy comes even when you make a spiritual decision not to have it. (I know weeeeiiiiird.) So apparently you actually have to get on the pill to make it not happen.

If you still have pills from way back when, you will probably want to put them on your dresser again. But check the expiration date 'cause old pills on your dresser won't work.

Melissa said...

Seriously? 1500 people for the giveaway? You must be so popular. (I'm hearing Wickeds PoPULAR play in my head right now)
Have the baby in late sept/oct then you will have the cutest little baby bumpy with no strectch marks during the summer when you can wear a modest bikini and you can get cute preggo sweaters for the fall too! Win win.

b. said...

I'd get yourself one of those Housewife Headaches until like--mid-July.

Elissa said...

so now it's official. You better put up an ovulation ticker on your blog. And share every tiny deet about how you're "trying"

Shae said...

Okay...so this is the first time I've stumbled upon your blog...so maybe I'm missing a TON of info here...

BUT...I have never "avoided" anytime to get pregnant, and things have always worked out in the best interest of our family. I have a May, March, August, and soon to be May again kids. They have been great! Yes, I agree that I have enjoyed my Spring/Early Summer babies/pregnancies...but I wouldn't change it for the world when I had my August baby. With her, we were at the "trying" stage, and knowing that it would take us longer to get preggers with her, we were planning on a March-May with her...but ended up in August!...yes, the summer wasn't that great, but I was SO excited to be able to have SUMMER maternity clothes and fashions, rather than always have to hide in my winter maternity. I also loved being able to wear my maternity swimming suit, because with my first two, I *bought* a suit in hopes of having to use it somewhere...but never got to.

Anyway...bottom line...when you think it's time for a baby...don't put it off because of the "cuteness" factor. Just go for it, because it's meant to be. I think the only time to need to put it off would be for a change of job or location that would make it difficult. But even in that sense, people do it, and make it through. Good luck in whatever your decision may be!

Mitzi said...

TAMN! Seriously, the best time for you to get preggers would be mid May! You'll still be super hot skinny, BUT the preggo hormones would have already kicked in and you'll have wayyy bigger tatas. So, you'll look EVEN HOTTER! (If that's even possible, right?) And, if you want to wear a "less-than modest" and show a little tummy, you can just tell everyone you're expecting when you're 1 week pregnant and claim that your swimsuit doesn't cover everything because of the bun in your little oven. (But you should go out and buy a NEW suit that shows just your cute bellybutton. This is your only chance!)

Do exactly what I say.

Madry Family said...

I just had my daughter at the end of August and it was really hot!! My older kids wanted to be outside all day playing but I just wanted to sit on the ac vent for most of the day!!!:)

: ) Paula said...

I just read the comment from Wells. Please tell me that doesn't really happen. PLEASE?

Shane and Chelsea Elton said...

You are dead on...I had my baby in August and my summer was absolute HELL!! And any time I pulled on my nasty one piece to hit the pool, I felt like such a frumpy whale (and did I mention I was so white because you can't tan when you're preggers). Next time around, I'm definitely going try to get pregnant in July or August.
