Just wanted to say that I think February is a *great* month to have a baby!
Now that the holidays are over, hopefully you have a minute to put your feet up, hunker down and hibernate these last few weeks.
I loved being secluded during the cold months with my new dd, snuggling her like a big mama bear. And as spring dawned we began to venture out, first just around the block, then further and further. As the weather got warmer, I got stronger and the weight began to come off. By June all my pregnancy weight (45 lbs) was gone and I felt great in my new (relatively) "slim" body.
At 10.5 months my dd was a joy to share the holidays with, wonderfully entertaining, and charmed all the relatives.
I wish you all the best of luck, you're in for a great year!
