there was an article today in the Chicago tribune about just this issue!

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...

Mama to 3 kids. We live in a yurt!

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.

Hi!

I just got interviewed by a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. I'm on the "what a cool number" side of this, and he would like to speak to someone who feels more negatively about possible giving birth on 666. If anyone would like to provide their input for his article, his name is Thomas Heinen. He can be emailed: [email protected] or you can call him at 414-244-2311. This isn't spam, I just thought someone might want to share their opinion since he wants to present both sides. It's not an alarmist article, just a lighthearted piece.
