I just know it, that'll be my baby's birthday

Of course when I told my sister about it, these were her words: "That'd be awesome! Friday the 13th is such a good day!" and she's serious. When she had lasik eye surgery done a few years ago she scheduled it for Friday the 13th on purpose!

ah well. what to do 40 weeks + 4 days and no sign of baby.

Mama to dd born 7/2005, dd born 12/2007 and dd born 11/2009.

I'm right there with you. I was hoping to avoid the 13th and 14th (the latter is my birthday). A friend posted on my FB, though, that she was born on Friday the 13th, and I have to say she turned out pretty cool and not at all jinxed. My mom, on the other hand, had a scheduled C with me, and purposefully avoided the 13th! Guess all that planning came back to her anyway, 30-some years later!

I would not mind the 13th!

Where I live they do not even have a 13th avenue it is East ave instead because they thought the number 13 is jinxed

My husband was just saying last night that he hopes it isn't then. Personally I don't mind and would find it kinda funny.

Totally DDC crashing, but tomorrow is my birthday (it was a Friday the year I was born, too) and I turned out pretty cool.

My mom thinks this one will come tomorrow on the 13th. My little sister was born on Friday the 13th and my DD was born on her birthday (although not a Friday that year). I was actually trying to avoid today and tomorrow. Today is my anniversary, but I am so done that I really don't care anymore, just please come out baby!

DH wants the 13th to be "the day" since 11/13 is when his father passed away. He thought it would be a nice tribute. (No signs of labor, though, so I doubt it!)

My DD has a book called "Oh, Yikes!" which has creepy aspects of history. I read about Friday the 13th and found out it was just Christians trying to attract people away from paganism. So, now it doesn't bother me at all!

I would be OK with that--that'll put me at 40+2. And it *would* be so convenient for my hubs and my OOT family to have the baby on a Friday night.... sigh.

Today is our wedding anniversary too!

Today is my grandmother's birthday and tomorrow (the 13th) is my mom's. So either today or tomorrow would be perfect for me. Tap Tap, is this thing on, Baby Girl? Do you hear what your mama said? Come on out, kiddo! Time's up!

Pretty sure this babe will be a 13th little gal. Nothing is progressing fast enough to make it tonight - darn. But I'm sure not going through another full day of this!!

an hour and a half ago I started getting contractions, and they are getting more intense. So assuming baby doesn't come in just 3 hours (ha!) it's starting to look like baby may really have a 13th birthday! That's all right, I'm ready! (then again, I could be laughing about this 24 hours from now, still pregnant!) anytime now, baby. is the food really that good in there that you don't want to come out?

of course my contractions are more spaced out today I would love to have him today my grandmother told me this morning he is not to come today I think it would be cool on the 17th though as Ds is on the 17th and my mother is on the 17th Ds is exactly 51 and a half years younger than my mom I think that is neat but it would be funny if he came today as it is the only day my grandmother said not to come and normally she knows when they will be here!!!
