There are a few of us with that date. I can't wait to see which one of us ends up actually delivering on that day and who goes first! I've never had a baby anywhere near their due date, first was 5 days late, twins were one week early, and the last was one week late so I really want this baby to be born on New Year's Day, it would be so cool, but I bake 'em long so I don't have great expectations.

The 1/1/11 thing hadn't even occurred to me until I saw you and a couple of others post it! I'm due the 8th, but I usually go a little early (except that one time I was 11 days late <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">), so it could be me! That would be pretty cool!<br><br>
I'm just hoping this little one stays in at least that long, 'cause January 1 is the cut-off for school age here, so if I get a December babe, he/she would be the youngest in his/her class. I'd really like to avoid that.

I love the due date. Besides all the one-derful 1s, it is exciting not know what month or even what year lo would arrive. Though, <b>Beverly</b>, sounds a bit stressful in your situation.<br><br>
ETA: 1/1/11 is my EDD too--just realized it's not in my sig.

Even though my due date is on the first I have ZERO expectations of delivering on that day. Both times I went over a week late. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I've never had an interesting edd before so having 1/1/11 is exciting! However, I know that my babies like to bake much longer than their edd so I'll probably will end up delivering around 1/15. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

1/1/11 and 1/11/11 are pretty cool. I'm due around the 12th but I'm a 42-weeker so I'll probably end up with a 2/11 baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

You reminded me of 1/11/11 so that's one to shoot for if I'm late (which I will be.) My twins were due on 4/17/4, so when 4/4/4 came around I was like "PLEASE, PLEASE!!!" That didn't happen though, they came on the 9th. ;-)

My ds was 8 days early, which if I repeat that I'll have a X-mas eve babe. Somehow I think this one will stay longer. I'll be very happy to welcome an new babe any day it arrives.<br><br>
Interesting that so many of us have that nifty EDD.

new year's day wasn't my daughter's due date by a long shot, but that's when she was born. she was the first baby in the hospital. the extra attention was kind of fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> . with that said, new year's eve might be nice too since it's still a "special day" and you still get the tax benefit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I am due 12/27, but my MW jokes with our history of holiday babies and late babies she hopes I have a 1/1/11 baby.

I'm also 1/1/11. I really hope the LO waits for the new year. DH doesn't have any vacation left this year!

FF puts my EDD at 12/31/10, but the dating u/s says 1/1/11. My OB is a nerd and said that 1/01/11 in base ten is 23, so kid is nicknamed 23 haha.

I've gone early with both of my other kids so a New Year's birthday isn't out of the question for me. However, my daughter's birthday is New Year's Eve so I would much prefer to go later!
