Anyone Due June 6? - Page 2

post #21 of 44
I haven't had an u/s. And won't have one unless my midwife thinks there's a reason to which so far...has not been but I know if I had one. My due date would be pushed up. I just really think I'm farther along then what my last period says. Time will tell.

We think she's nuts. But... Its nagging at me. I realize shes crazy but then again, ... is she right?... ANy words of wisdom, advice etc?

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it, but if it bothers you and you have the "luxury" of a scheduled c-section, why don't you just schedule it for the 5th or the 7th?

P.S. June 6th is St. Norbert's Feast Day.

The weird part - and possibly selfish part, depending on how you look at it and how you feel re: 666- anyway the weird part for me is that part of my teenage rebellion included jokes and references to the devil and 666 ( all joking, not in a serious I the devil way) between me and my best friend, Missie. So its so "me" to have a child on 06/06/2006. I have to be honest in that it feels almost like an extension of my teenage rebellion phase, and so on. Its just so "ME" and my family gets it (not my MIL, she dosnt know about my "past" ha ha) and so do old friends. So I am sortof giggling inside about it. I am feeling generally insecure about life these days, so influences from my MIL about her feelings re: this birthdate lead me to question myself. But the basic thing is that neither DH nor I beleive that 666 is a mark of the devil and will be a sign of evil, etc. So that isnt an issue for us. I am just back and forth insecure about it, kwim?

Due June 6, but number one came two days late and my sister actually went one week late with number three and the chance of birthing on your due date is minimal... So, what the heck, 6-4-6 or 6-8-6 sounds good to me. I like even numbers...

Me too, dh does not get my obsession with giving birth on an even numbered day. My mom is the same way, everything has to be even! Personally, I wouldn't mind 6-6-06. Its just another day, and an even one, so that's just fine by me! I'd actually prefer 6-6 to 6-5 or 6-7.

I'm sitting with my legs crossed till next Tuesday... Our son is scheduled for a C section on 6-6-6, and I am now attached to the date! I am not letting this kiddo out a minute earlier!

That date doesn't weird us out at all. We've even laughed about if she did come on that day what would people think. However, ours is not due until June 20th and well.. She doesn't show any signs of coming anytime soon.

there was an article today in the Chicago tribune about just this issue!
post #32 of 44
Yeah, a local radio station here did a segment on this. Apparently around the world there is some weird movement to induce so you don't have the baby on that day.

Odd.... I'm due June 5. Maybe my baby will be a 6/6/06 baby, but I hope she's here earlier than that... waiting is becoming tiresome...

Can you post a link if its online? I was sent a PM by a reporter from the LA Times who wanted to interview me about the topic as well. Unfortunatley, I didnt check my PM box until about a month later so I never had my chance to be rich and famous.

Only 5 more days until I get my very own little !

I am due the 21st but I though it would be funny to have himon the 6th becasue of all the hubbbub about it. I would totally try to name him Damian or something like that, Lucious, or Lucifer, Louis Cifer, but I like messing with people. I am totally Christian and I love God and all but I think all the crazyness about this "number" is funny. Its just like Y2K people, are silly to think we "know" what God is up to. Humans are faliable and its already been said that 666 isnt the devils number anyways its something different and that 666 was mis inturrpted, like so many other things in the bible. Oh well. If he come on 6-6-6 that would be cool, I know hes not the anti-christ, my mom says that thats Oprah anyways.

You're right about it being misinterpreted. Technically it has something to do with the numerical value of the ACs name adding up to 6-6-6.

Lol.. I still don't want to have him that day (obviously I won't do something crazy like induce to avoid it!) just because of the snickers he would have to put up with for the rest of his life. Like I said, my moms SSN ends in 0666 and she's thought about changing it because every time she has to give it to someone they snicker and make comments about it. Of course though, if he comes on that day there's just nothing I can do about it. I have two brothers born on 6-4 and 6-7 and my great grandmother and cousin are also 6-7. So, maybe they'll get their wishes for a 6-7 baby to share their b-day with again.

My LMP due date is 6/10 but awhile back (like, in March) I had an u/s (unfortunately) and going by that he said my due date was 6/6. I'm just going by my LMP due date. If the baby comes on 6/6 I wouldn't really care. Actually, it'd kinda be cool if it was born 6/6 because my dd was born 7/7.
