    Default Would you pause ttc so that your children's birthdays aren't in same month?

    Would you pause ttc for a couple of months so that your children's BD's aren't the same mth?

    Nope I wouldn't. That idea doesn't really bother me.

    I think the title got cut off but I assume you're asking if anyone would try to avoid their kids having birthdays close together?

    In my case, no. DS was born 2 weeks before DDs birthday. When we were doing IVF I did think about it, but as long as they didn't end up with the same birthday I didn't care if they were close. If we have a third I probably wouldn't mind if all 3 we're close together.

    No! Crazy thought to me. Who's to know when they'll come anyway. DS was due Aug 6th but arrived July 8th. This baby has a due date of Aug 25th but because of DS1, I really have no idea when to expect him to come - he could be a September arrival for all we know!

    Well looks like I'm a little crazy then.....I'm a bit obsessive sometimes!

    Been ttc for 7mths now including a mc, so it's a big thing for me

    Ds was due 17/4, born 12/4. Dd1 was due 25/4, born 15/4. Dd2 was due 31/3, born 27/3. So nope.. was meant to be! I am glad that arent on the same day and quite like them all so close :-)
    ETA: Originally i wanted to ensure their bdays werent close together.. but we lost that pregnancy at 15 weeks.. thats when I realised it doesnt matter when their bdays are as long as they have a birth day :-)

    Nope i wouldn't stop, but i was in the same boat as you coming up to the month our twins were conceived.
    Turns out I did fall pregnant that same month and baby #3 was due 11 days after our twins' birthday. Sadly that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.
    Same thing 11months later but bub (so due 1 month before) but that pregnancy also ended in a miscarriage.
    You never know when you'll be blessed with your next baby.

    not birthdays but I didn't want a December baby ... Summer and Christmas so I kind of had that in the back of my mind as we lived in Brisbane at the time ...
