Me (36) + DH (38) = 4 boys (13, 11, 9, 7)
Expecting BOY #5 in January 2015
My brothers' birthdays are May 21, May 27, and June 19. Mine is June 7. We always called it birthday season at our house too. I do remember feeling a little jealous of my sister whose birthday was in February--it always seemed like she got better presents. I think my mom was sick of birthdays by June.
Honestly, I don't think it's anything to worry about..
mama to a sweet girl , & 4 silly boys
I really don't think close birthdays make that big of a difference, which is good now since DS' birthday is 10 days after mine.
August: Ds#2 (and Aunt, 1st cousin, and Grandma)
September: Ds#1 (and 1st cousin, Grandpa, and Aunt)
October: Ds#3 and Dh
My birthday is 2 weeks after my younger brother's, whose b-day is two days after Christmas -- that was a tough one!
Anyway, I think it's all in how you approach it!
I'd say go for it, esp since you've been trying for awhile. Your kids may actually enjoy having b-days close together.
Ds2 Oct 22
Dd2 Nov 21
Ds1 and Me Nov 25
Dh Jan 6
Dd1 Jan 10
We love it!

If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
I can't speak for him, but I always thought it was cool having my birthday so close to his.
His birthday celebrations always got me excited about my own birthday.
My sister's birthday is 5 days after my mother's.
My son's is 10 days before my husband's.
Can't really control when birthdays are!
Right before my son was born, and I was lamenting to a friend that the baby might be born on my husband's birthday and so DS would never have his own special day, she told me that her husband was born on his father's birthday, and that he always LOVED sharing a day with Dad!
I'm actually kind of sad that my daughter's birthday is all alone in February.... her name looks so lonely on the calendar since there's no other family birthdays then! I was hoping she could hang on for 3 more days, and then she and I would share March! (Along with my brother! )
My daughter's birthday is September 16.
My sons' birthdays are November 16 and 28.
Most of their cousins have fall birthdays. Throw in Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, and the kids think fall/early winter is just one long party! No one seems to mind .
It's never been a problem before. I assume in the future, when they each have their own set of friends, they'll each have their own party- a small one.
My sister and I are a month apart in birthdays. I never even really noticed it.
Married, working mom to son (almost 15), DD1 (almost 13) and DD2 (11). Oh, and badnewf, a nonobadbordercollie and 3 black cats.
babies come when they come and even with the best planning the little bugger can come early or late and still land on their siblings birthday. such is life.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Mind you, the only reason my first sister's birthday is the 20th and not the 19th is because my mother refused to go to the hospital until midnight so we wouldn't share a birthday (she knew she was going to have a c-section because of prior medical history). Was her doctor ever mad!
We loved it growing up because it meant that our grandparents from far away always came to visit during our birthday season. My older brother's birthday is August, and our youngest siblings are twins born in November. Sometimes there would be a visit around the twins' birthday too (which also happens to be my DS's birthday), but never for my brother, because his birthday was all alone.
Because Isaac's birthday is in the middle of the school holiday, he had an unbirthday party this year on Nov 25th. That was fun
My oldest two have birthdays just 4 days apart. So far, we've only done combined birthday 'parties' with family - they've not complained. But they are only 3 and 5, so the complaints may come yet.
Of those two - the younger was born on my sister's birthday.
Which is followed just 4 days later by my brother-in-laws birthday.
