Yes I admit I am superstitious. I don't like to have 13 of anything, it's either 12 or 14 for me. I either buy one more, throw one away, whatever not to have 13. Friday the 13th just spooks me out. So today I was thinking about the baby coming, like any of else are thinking of much else :LOL , and I was hoping that he would not come on the 13th. So I look at the calendar and surprise, surprise the 13th falls on Friday this month. I'm really getting worked up over this. I know nothing bad will probably happen but I really, really, really hope that if he is going to come around the 13th it is the 12th or the 14th. Tell me I'm silly or that you are thinking the same things....

I think you're silly! LOL. My best friend was born on a Friday the 13th, in October no less! She's one of the coolest people I know. I think having that unique start in life would be pretty cool for a kid, honestly. I'll have to start hoping that's the day for us!

the only thing that would make me unhappy about delivering on friday the 13th is that i would be 17 days overdue! not impossible but i think i would be a very unhappy camper... not at all because of the date, though!

My official due date is Aug 12, but I have been saying Aug 13 the whole time. It freaks out some people, but I find humor in it. I say it sums up my whole pregnancy. But I LIKE the number 13. I have always felt it lucky. If something good was to happen to me, it usually happened around the number 13.

Now, my OB is out of town the week I am due so it would mean I see someone else if I go in. That is the ONLY reason I do not want to deliver on the 13th. However, it is entirely possible since my 4 are 12,14,16,17 days of their respective months, so the 13th fits in.

If it freaks you out, then for your sake I hope you go before or after. I'll go that day for you.

I am in Katje's bag - at this point I don't care what day as long as this kid comes!!

Maybe your mental concerns will help put the breaks on a 13th baby.

ahhh..... that would put me 10 days past EDD but..I am a little weird about that date too, so I actually would not mind waiting one more day to pass so the baby would not be on that day....(I know Caroiline I know...silly silly....lol)
I am with you on this one Trish

Only because it's 2 days past my due date and I'm ready for the babe to be born *now*.
Other than that, I'd love it. 13 is a lucky number in our family. Several people have been born on the 13th.

I would love it! It is exactl a week before my EDD and also my hubby's birthday. That would be sweet. DH's oldest brother and his father share a birthday. It would be neat if dh and ds2 shared a birthday. I admit I would be a little leary and superstitious but at this point I just want him OUT.

I'll take it !!

It's just 38 weeks for me - and my Boo was born at 38w+1, so I don't expect to go much further this time around.

Trish-I never was until now. I'm officially one week late as of tomorrow. UGH! So, yes, I am a bit worried. I'm not usually an especially superstitious person, but I have to admit it would but me just a wee bit... :

Well, I initially didn't read this thread because I never thought I would be pregnant on Friday the 13th. But it's Friday the 13th now and am still pregnant. We talked quite a bit during the past couple of days about the baby being born today. Right now, I guess I'm just really not concerned enough on the date. I had wanted 8-8, but that's gone. And I'm now 11 days overdue.

Yay! Go Terri go! I was having some nice contractions late last night and thought it would be today. A few contractions this morning so maybe, maybe not.
