Winter vs. Summer pregnancies

At this point I've been pregnant for at least a little bit of every month. With J, I found out I was pregnant in May and he was born the beginning of January. With Baby Boy #2, we found out I was pregnant in January and I'm due at the end of September. I've had a lot of people tell me how hard it must be to be pregnant in the middle of the summer. Too be honest, I've discovered that there are definitely pros and cons to both situations.
 
Winter Pregnancy
Snowflake Machine Embroidery Design
What was awesome:
- not having to deal with the heat
- eating as much as I wanted at Christmas & Thanksgiving
- getting to wear comfy track pants and sweatshirts
- getting to wear my Uggs to work
- not having to shovel

Not so awesome:
- trying to find a coat that fits
- worrying about the weather and drive on the way to the hospital
- bundling up for appointments
- walking in the snow and sliding all over

Summer Pregnancy

What's awesome:
- swimming and the lack of weight involved
some cute maternity clothes
- eating as much ice cream and popsicles to keep cool
- Birks...not boots!

What's not so awesome
- not being able to drink beer in the heat
- the heat!
- wear maternity clothes and not cute summer clothes
- the sweating!
- shaving my legs (I can't reach them!)

Either way, I think people can find ways to complain about the pregnancy. I know I always have something to be whining about!

What do you think of my list? Can you add anything else that I may have forgotten?
