My boyfriends sister and my best friends daughter both have birthdays 1 day either side of my due date, I would like my DD to have birthday a little bit separated from these 2 events.....

Hotmad I think it was easy to see you were idly wondering and not too serious. As soon as I saw your OP I thought , well you are NBU to hope but babies come when they want!

I have examples in my family that it works both ways - DS1 was due on DH's birthday, but didn't arrive till 9 days later, and DS3 arrived on my birthday, despite not being due till a week later.

Good luck, and enjoy your new baby whenever she arrives thanks

What a strange thread confused. As long as the baby and you are healthy does it matter. You sound very childish OP Sounds like you should still be playing with your dolls. Sorry to be harsh but there are people out there waiting to give birth to children that will be born with defects or not well and you are worrying about birthdays

Oh I get it. My babies are always late My dd was due on ds 2s birthday which incidently is 11 days after ds 3s birthday so I am not that great at family planning. I worried not,I always go at least 11 days over. I went into labour the day before Ds birthday and Madam made her appearance at 12.30 am on ds 10th birthday. At 6am he came through to our bedroom and got a bit of a shock but he declared her the best present ever

Doesn't matter if you're being UR or not, it'll happen when it happens!

Fwiw my DD's birthday is on 13th September, I have one cousin on 11th, one on 12th and my best friend recently welcomed her long-awaited first baby on 14th. My own birthday is on the 20th!

Tbh the only time it's been an issue is when I turned 30 - we had a big party the week before for DD's 1st birthday so mine was a bit of a non-event by comparison!

Mylovelyboy Did you mean to be so rude? Actually, yes, having read a lot of your posts lately, I'm sure that you did. Only this time you forgot to add that you weren't trying to be goady. HTH.

That wasn't particularly rude, Baroness???

YABU. They're not really close relations are they?

Dd2 was born 2 days before dd1's birthday this week. I'm going to have to sort out 2 birthdays within days of each other every year for the rest of my life. That's harder than what you've described.

Floggingmolly Maybe she's having an off-day? grin

Due date?

If you're like me, it'll be fairly random compared to baby's arrival.

PFB 12 wks early

PSB 4wks early!

None of mine were born anywhere near their due dates,

DD1 born in July 9 weeks early
DD2 born in January 8 weeks early,

DD2 was born 4 days before my birthday, and I love the fact that our birthdays are so close together.

I am 46, and have never met anyone who shares my birthday.

I chose my birthday to have my daughter by planned section.

I regret that now I have to host children's parties in our flat when I want a day wining and dining!
