Sounds obvious, I know, but do you count roughly 9 or 10 months on? Last time I tried to conceive it took me just under two weeks, and although I know we might just have got lucky that time, I don't want to take any chance. Had a summer baby last time and would love another!
Oh dear, if I have offended LadySherlock by referring to an un-conceived, potential baby-to-be as an 'it', I apologise unreservedly...
Anyway, thanks to the rest of you. I've been trying the due date calendar at Babycentre today, but you have to be several days late before it calculates your date. I'm mid-period and just idling speculating on when IT (the birth, not the baby, this time...) would be.
Suzie, I had an August Bank Holiday baby last year and LOVED being pregnant in the heat - just floating around the house, eating peaches and strawberries. Always thought winter must be a nightmare to be pregnant - having to pull those horribly maternity tights up over your bump.
My DS was the 6th Aug cakehead. I had such extreme swelling I couldn't find any shoes to fit and squeezed my toes into a pair of extra wide Clarks flip flops when going out. The hospital was old fashioned and roasting hot and I spent my time in the labour ward getting stuck to plastic undersheets! I do worry about how you'd get a winter jacket to fit with a bump though!
You're right, Suzie. The coats, the trousers, the tights - all a winter nightmare. I was just pleased that peasant skirts were in the shops last summer. I lived in them. Actually, PEOPLE could live in them. A small army's tent.
