Since my grandma passed two years ago I've known I'd name my girl after her if I had one. Tomorrow would be my grandma's birthday, and I'm really hoping DD decides to show up Only 38 weeks, but I can still hope!

Considering DS was born on DH's grandma's birthday, it's only fair, right?

Anyone else hoping for a specific day? My only other alternative is my birthday, but that puts her almost 2 weeks late, so, no thanks!

My due date is 1/10 - my birthday is today and I'm pretty confident I'm not having a baby today. My grandma's birthday is 1/12, though, and it would be kinda cool to have the baby share hers!

1/11 would be a cool day for a birthday, and 11 has kind of been my number lately. My lucky number is 8, so 1/8 (also my EDD) would be nice. 1/9/9 is kind of catchy. As you can see, there's nothing meaningful about these, they're just neat!

Actually, it's a full moon the night of the 10th, so that would be cool.

So, I guess I'm hoping for the 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th (or, you know, any day before then!). After the 11th, well, this will be me: :

I really wanted the 11th too, my dd was born on 2/11 and I thought 1 month exactly between their bdays.

Funny, my EDD is the 11th, too, and with my son it was 11/11, so that was my first "clue" that I was pregnant this time, only moments after DTD and before I even knew I'd ovulated! Astrologically, I'm hoping for Monday the 5th or Saturday the 10th, but my "11" baby would be nice, too!

Id like this week, although today is my birthday, and Thursday is DHs (as well as it was my moms, and my grandmother died on the 8th as well, so I'd prefer NOT that day) but in the next 3 days would be great! or the 12th, the due date. DD is the 17th, I don't want that day, nor to wait that long! LOL

mom to Reaghan born underwater into midwife's hands 1/17/07 & Myra born surrounded by doulas and midwife at home 1/12/09. Birth Educator, and Photographer, Baby #3 Coming May 2013!

Today would be good. We have an ice storm moving in tonight, and another moving in on Wednesday. On the other hand we have family or friend birthdays on 1/2, 1/4, 1/7, 1/10, 1/11, 1/14, 1/17, 1/18, 1/21, and 1/28. My brother and I are are 1/7 and 1/14. Exactly a week apart, and the same age for that week. I am technically due on 1/11, so that would be my cousins birthday. Today is my uncle's. i have given up on trying to miss other people's birthdays, and everyone else has said they would be thrilled to share their birthday with baby.

Mama to 4 darlings. A ('03), O and K ('06), A ('09), and wife to M since 2002.

Ha! Me too! But add the 4th, 5th, and 6th! I won't get : until the 14th (my EDD.) In other words ASAP!

Actually, I can't decide if I want her to share my birthday (1/14) or have her own. I guess it would be kind of neat to share our birthday, or have her born at least a week away from it. Oh God, please not a week after!

Mom to 5 amazing kids! (DS8, DS7, DD4, DD2 and DS0)

I would have loved yesterday because I was 38+6, and DD was born at 38+6... But I didn't get it.

Any day but the 9th... I have a school test!

Today would be GREAT! Not just because my body feels ready and because I dont want to go to work tomorrow... but because today is my MIL's birthday. And this little one (if she is actually a girl) will be named after her. So how cool would that be? To share a birthday with your namesake?!?
If not today, I dont really care when. It would be cool to go on my EDD. Its 1/23 and 23 is kind of like DH and my "lucky number" in a corny cheesy sort of way. So I guess she will come when shes ready but it would be cool.

I'm due the 16th, so, if I was to go overdue, the 20th (Obama day!) would be kind of cool! DH said I need to go online and order a little Obama onsier, just in case, or - if she's born already she can just wear it on that day to celebrate!

Other than that, the full moon would be great! Back when I was TTC I used to ovulate on the full moon every month, so I wonder if my body is still in sync at all. They are predicting a huge snowstorm this weekend, so that would be just my luck - to go into labor during a huge blizzard and here we are, 45 min from the hospital on a good day!

Shooting for the 10th here.

Anytime before the 25th would be wonderful, as it is my youngest's b'day. BUT if I have to go to the 25th I am hoping for that night.
