people with inside babies

Is there one specific day you DONT want to have your baby on?

I don't care what date he is born on as long as its not 4/20. I know in school kids made a huge deal out of 420 day and I don't want kids telling him he was born to be a stoner. That might sound silly but I don't care lol.

I am picking a just-in-case induction date at my next appointment and my choices are the 19th, 21st and 22nd. I am thinking probably not the 19th because I know inductions can be slow sometimes and I don't want it going into the 20th.

Edit: typo

    I would prefer him not to come on 4/20, but whatever day he decides to come is fine. Can't stress about the little things at this point, but that's just my opinion.

    I definitely see where your coming from though!

    I'm "overdue" now- so hoping she doesn't wait till next week to come. I can't imagine being pregnant they a whole another weekend!!!!
  • Options
    On 4/14, only because this whole pregnancy everyone has been telling me that's when I need to have her. I guess I'm just a grump like that.....
  • Options
    not the 26th. It is my little sisters 16th birthday and she really doesn't want to share it. So as long as baby doesn't come on the 26th I will be happy. I'm due 4/29, so i feel pretty safe that LO wont come on the 26th.

    I never thought about the 4/20 thing! I'm due on the 28th. I really, really want an April baby. April reminds me on both my grandmothers. One of them loved the spring time and the last time I saw the other was when I was 17. I flew to England in April. I remember as the plane was getting closer to landing we were flying over fields filled with daffodils. Pregnancy has made me particularly sentimental.

    I feel like I've been playing this game in my mind since I hit 37 wks on 3/17.

    At this point, I would prefer not 4/13 (because she'd have a Friday the 13th birthday every once in a while, though I guess not the biggest deal).

    If she doesn't come on her own, I'd be induced at 42 wks on 4/21, which is one of her cousin's birthdays. I'd prefer not then so she has her own. I actually like 4/20 because DS is 5/20, though it being Easter means we'd miss it this year and having MIL come to watch DS would be logistically more difficult. I'd be find with that and hopefully MIL could make it work.

    Ultimately I would still be thrilled if he decided on his own to arrive on 4/20 but I just wouldn't pick it.

    I don't want LO to arrive on 4/20 because it is my BIL's birthday. Also, 4/20 is Eastsr this year and I have plans to eat delicious food all day!
  • Options
    My husband is a WWII buff and wants to avoid 4/20 because its Hitler's birthday. Other than that we are open to any day! My husband's birthday is 4/29 and I think he would like it in that day. I'm due 4/27 so that's definitely possible.

    4/17 is my brother's birthday and it wouldn't be a big deal, but 4/18 would be a good date because that would mark exactly 11 months from our wedding.

    I'm with everyone on 4/20; I'd also like to go to church on Easter pregnant or with an outside baby if possible. DH doesn't want "Star Wars Day" 5/4.

    We're trying to figure out what days to "root" for. DS was born on 9/10/11 and we feel like #2 needs his own cool bday date. There aren't that many in April/May!

    I'm with you! I would hate 4/20 and plus that would be 10 days "early" and on Easter so my family would be here and they'd be involved from the beginning, and I want it to be a my hubby and I thing until baby arrives. For me, anytime after 4/25 is good because I don't have anything planned and will be all caught up on work for my mat leave and all of our decor will have arrived. Ha, so here's hoping to that!
  • Options
    I wouldn't have even though of 4/20... People don't seem to make a big deal about it here. I've seen the odd FB reference, I guess, but kids in school certainly didn't make fun of people whose birthdays fell on that date! I wouldn't really care of LO came on that day, though that would be pretty early since I'm technically due May 4th. 
    My mom's birthday is Apr 21st, my aunt's is the 18th, and mine is the 23rd, and I can't decide if it would be cool if the baby shared one of our birthdays or if it would be better if s/he didn't....... *shrug* We'll see!

    Not for the rest of this week ! My OB is out of town until Monday. On top of that, it's Masters week here In Augusta and traffic getting my hospital is crazy ! So he can come any time after Monday.
  • Options
    I agree with 4/20- really don't want it then. My kids are leaving to spend spring break with the grandparents on Saturday so anytime next week would be wonderful. It would be great to have some quiet time with just hubby and LO for a few days. But due on the 28th so probably not going to happen!

    I am also an accountant and have an EDD of 4/15.  I do not want a tax day baby just because it would be so cliche and I have gotten so many jokes about it already.  And I don't want her to come today or tomorrow because DS is sick.

    Other than that she can come any time and I would be happy.

     

  • Options
    It's silly but I wouldn't want her to come on the 18th because that's my nieces birthday and she is still little and REALLY doesn't want to share her birthday which I know in the long run won't matter but would make the next few years tough.

    Agreed!!!  I also agree with 4/20 but mainly b/c that's Easter this year and I already have Baby's Easter Basket and PJs.

    My EDD is 4/20 so I've been hearing the weed and Hitler jokes for quite a few months already. I'd prefer if he wasn't born on 4/20 but I'd rather he avoid 4/15. That's my SIL's birthday and she hated it growing up.
  • Options
    I really wanted 4/14 too because 14 is my favorite number but I'm not due until the 27th so I probably shouldn't wish for her to be that early. I'm not crazy about having a 4/20 baby but not the end of the world either. Having a star wars baby would be pretty cool and is probably the most likely senario out of the dates I mentioned.

    Ever since I realized 4/20 was a possible delivery date for my baby since she's due only 3 days later I've said I didn't want her born on that day so she wouldn't be associated with that day, particularly by my brother and sister who are potheads and would more than likely make dumb comments about how awesome it is for her to be born that day.

    But. Now I'm thinking I don't care as much and would love to have her before or on Easter that way I have an excuse not to do Eastery things while I'm huge and miserable and all I want to do is lay down and relax.

    Zero preference at this point. Really want her to come before Easter though (Easter is 10 days past my due date...which is today)

    I'm 4 days over right now. I'm hoping it's not this Friday or Saturday due to birthdays in my family. My brothers birthday is Saturday and has made comments the entire pregnancy about her being born on his birthday so I just really don't want that to happen. Although I do want her out! :) I wouldn't go late enough to 4/20 but it's my parents anniversary so I wouldn't mind that if I was due later.
  • Options
    This is so stupid, but I really don't want this baby to come on the 13th or the 15th. The 13th is my brother's birthday and the 15th is my mom's birthday. I just want him to have his own birthday. Not to mention these are the two people in my family I butt heads with the most. 

    Although I wouldn't be surprised if the universe plays a joke on me and have him come on the 15th during the full moon, and my mom will brag to everyone that he came on HER birthday (can you tell - she annoys me? haha). 

    I'm due on the 17th.

    On a side note, I would love 4/14/14.. that would be a cool birthday! :)

    I didn't care until I got news that my grandmother is very close to passing away. My dad is traveling to be with her (rightly so) and he leaves Sunday. So... I'm due tomorrow and want baby out ASAP. It would crush me for my father to lose his mother and miss his first grandson's birth, not to mention for me to lose my grandmother and not be able to travel or have my father present for my son's birth. :(

    To the ones that are saying 4-14-14 would be cool, I totally agree! But it is my due date and I know its rare to go on your actual due date.

    I just want to make it through the 18th, my last day of work. It wouldn't be a huge deal if I went earlier, but my SIL told me they're planning a small surprise lunch for me on my last day and I'd feel bad missing it.
    Also I teach 1st grade and it would be nicer for the kids to make it through the Friday so I'm not unexpectedly suddenly not there one day. My EDD is 4/28 so I think I can make it past the 18th at least :)

    I'm due the 19th so we have gotten a lot of comments it's going to be an easter/hitler/weed baby. Mostly from DH's students since they all know he's never drank or smoked before! I would prefer not to have her on the 20th. Nor would I want her to come before the 17th since I've worked out maternity leave to start late next week!

    I favor odd numbers so I'm liking the 17, 19, or 21st! I have a poll going around and majority thinks she's coming between the 15th-17th. Not sure if they are basing that off of the full pink moon or not! :)

    I just want her to come before the 21st, so that she is an Aries. Stupid, I know, but I am due on the 18th so I might go into Taurus territory...
