    Nope. 2 of our dd's are in the same month, 1 at the beginning, 1 towards the end plus myself at the end, and another dd of ours is 1 week later (first week of following month). So we have 4 birthdays pretty much in as many weeks (along with a few uncles aunties and grandparents thrown in the same month as well).

    This month we considered not trying so we wouldn't have another feb baby(all 4 of ours kids are all born within weeks of each other so are DH and I) Decided to just go with it. Will see what happens.

    Nope we didn't pause. But we didn't conceive either. Hopefully we concieve before the next overlap rolls around!

    My family's birthdays overlap a lot. Several people in one month then none at all in others.

    No - not with my history (3 consecutive mcs). If I didn't have any issues I would consider it.

    Default Would you pause ttc for couple of mths so that your children's BD's aren't sa...

    No. It took way too long to fall with dd. I'll take every ttc opportunity when we start with no 2.

    Eta - if I fell pregnant easily I would avoid a December due date just to stay away from Christmas.

    I had planned to TTC later in the year so the birthdays wouldn't be too close, but this baby is due 6 days after DD's due date was, so as long as they don't actually share a birthday I'll be happy.

    ETA: I'm lucky enough to not have any fertility issues, but if I did I would probably not want to pause.

    Nope definitely not. It was so hard for me to get pregnant in the first place that I was stoked for a bub to be born any day of the year. Didn't bother me at all if due around other sibling bday or Xmas etc

    We didn't start TTC til now so our future child's birthday isn't over the summer school holidays... weird I know but I remember so many kids having no one at their parties cause it was over the summer holidays and invites would get lost/forgotten. Again, I know it's weird. Now it's likely I will be fat and pregnant over summer, which sounds like a terrible idea!
