Trying to Get Pregnant

Picking your due date month?

I was wondering has anyone wanted to have their baby due a certain month and figure out when they needed to conceive and have it actually work?

  • I know people who have done it ... but they are fertile myrtles!
  • If you are a lucky one who gets pregnant on the first try - then yes, with proper planning - this could work out.

    I think most of the ladies here would gladly take any due date they were blessed to have.

     

    A 7/2010 - 9 pounds 1 oz, 22 in

    T 3/2012 - 11 pounds, 22 in

      

  • I just want one. I don't care what month it is.
  • When we first started TTC, I would play around with the dates in my head.

    But at this point, I would be thrilled beyond belief to get pg at all.  It doesn't matter what month.  Getting pg is all I ask for, regardless of timing.

  • You should ask this on a different board...like 1st tri.

    This question is generally frowned upon here.

  • This is ridiculous. There is no way to get pg on demand. I thought I would have a summer baby when I started TTC in Nov. If I don't get pg soon, I may be back at having a summer baby. There's much more important things to worry about than your due date.
  • we started trying for march and after so i will be done school that being said, if we had conceived the first month trying wed have been due in feb. anything from now on is ideal but i definitely still would have taken any opportunity. picking a month almost never works out

    Good luck with that.

    Ha! I say that all the time.

  • You can use the due date calculator and put in your "expected" last period. That will tell you what month your will be due.  However, you might get AF late or early and you might not get KU right away so....  GL

    Regardless of where you ask the core response is the truth: Trying to plan like that is just setting yourself up for frustration.

    I have to disagree.  Maybe, like me, she needs to work around something -- finances, work, etc.  I have a few months I can TTC and then I need to take a break b/c it would put me in a very difficult position with work to have a baby during certain months of the year. 

  • No. I just want a baby

    Well, I guess that's where your priorities are then.  Sure, there are certain times of the year where it would definitely be more convenient to have the baby.  I don't deny that.  But if you are TTC for a very long time, you might start shifting around your priorities and welcome it at any time, period.
