I had my son in January. I had done the same kind of thinking as you, and thought it would be best to deliver in March or April, May at the latest. We started trying a little bit before that, thinking, well NO WAY would we get pregnant on the first shot. Oops.
Other than the fact that I was humongously pregnant at Christmas time, and that my son's birthday will forever be lost in the hubub of the holidays, my last trimester was great, weather wise.
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
