Anybody have a day they would like baby to be born??  I would like an April Fools Day baby.  I think it would be a fun b-day and I know several people with April 1 birthdays who are pretty cool people.  I also think it would be funny because when you call people to tell them you had a baby they wouldn't know if they should believe you or not. 

 

My due date is April 8 so this is within the realm of possibility.  But I know how unlikely it is.  We REALLY did not expect nor want dd1 to be a 4th of July baby.  In fact we had a looooong talk at the baby shower about how we did NOT want her to be born on the 4th (due date of the 9th) and of course, my water broke on the morning of the 4th and she was born that evening.  dd#2 we thought FOR SURE would be early. dd1 was a little early and second babies come earlier, right?  I was out of work early because of cramping and contractions.  and she was a week and a half PAST her due date.  so who knows what day this one will pick.  but I would like april 1st.  not that what I want matters in the slightest!  its only 22 days away!

 

anyone else have any thoughts on what day you would 'like' baby to come.  you know, if you had any say in it.

Our due date is April 24, and while we don't have any real preferences for when he's born, we really DON'T want him to be born on Hilter's birthday (April 20; we live in Germany). 

 

Good luck with your April Fool's baby! I think it would be cool to have the baby on April 2, since that is our wedding anniversary, but then he'd be 3 weeks early, so I'm not wishing for that.

I'm full term today (woot!) and the baby has an EDD of April 1 or 2 or March 31 (depending on who you ask/how you count).  I just *really* want an April baby.  So I don't care when she's born as long as it's after April 1.  Now, if I could guarantee going 40+ weeks, then I'd prefer she be born between April 1 and 9 on an odd numbered day.  I love the number 7, so April 7 could work!


DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

I'd be happy with an April Fool's Day -- or Avril Poisson! -- baby.  I'll be 40 weeks + 4 days on April 1st and maybe by then I'll feel a little more "ready."  :)  I don't really have any preference, but since my midwife is out of town until the 29th or 30th of March, I am definitely hoping to go past my due date of March 28th!


First child born March 2011.  Constantly in awe!

I'd be happy for an April 1st baby - it was grandpa's birthday, plus DS was born on New Year's Eve, so it would be kind of neat to have 2 holiday birthdays :)

 

I also think April 4th would be a good day since then the birthday would be 4/4/11.

That's what DH is hoping for, an April Fools baby.  My "official" EDD is Apr. 2nd so we will see.  I don't think I really care, just as long as it's within our homebirth "window".

I have no preference, but April Fools Day would be kind of fun.  March 31 is my dad's birthday, so that would be kind of neat too.

I'm due April 1st, but I want a March baby!  DH comes home on the 15th (after being gone 15 days) and I'm hoping it'll happen soon after he comes home.  I have no idea what to expect, it's my first.  His birthday is March 20th and I'd like that, but my guess is March 26th (don't know why, just the day I picked months ago!)

I would love April 25- that is DH's birthday and I'm due the 27th so definitely within the realm of possibility. 


Starcat - DD was born 7/3!

My due date is the 19th and the baby probably won't come until then or later, but I'd love the 13th.  My birthday is a 13th and it's always been my favorite number.  DD was born on 6/12--it would have been nice if she could have waited another day, but she was already 4 days past her due date.  I always thought Friday the 13th birthdays were fun.

I am an April Fool's baby so I'd love to share my birthday with the little one!  I've gone early with my other two so I'd be quite happy to go early with this one as well.  Any time between March 20th and April 10th (my due date) is fine with me.  My sister's birthday is April 14th and she does not want to share her birthday with anyone so I wouldn't be surprised if the baby came on the 14th.

I'm October 13.  Being in the same month as Halloween made Friday the 13th birthdays extra fun.  winky.gif

my son is 3/13!  :) he was born on fri the 13th.  Loved it as 13 is my lucky # :)  Don't really have a preference - just need this baby to wait 1 more week then I'm in my homebirth window and will be more than happy to deliver anytime after 37 weeks. :)

I told my mom that if I DID call her on April 1st that I am NOT kidding...lol! I think that would be mean to do to her....she's so excited and ready for DS2! I wouldn't mind when he comes as long as it's after 38 weeks. Going the last Friday of march would be great!

I'm actually kind of hoping that this LO doesn't come on April 1st. I am technically full-term today, but I'm hoping to make it at least until Marck 28th because March 27th is my last scheduled day of work, and I could really use a full paycheck to help us get through maternity leave. Either that, or I need for my husband to get this job he interviewed for today. Of course, I'm hoping for that anyway.

I have an April Fools Baby already!!  My almost 2 year old was born 4/1/2009.  I was due the 12th with him, but he came a tad early.  I'm "due" the 19th this time and kind of hoping that they don't have the same birthday.
