We did. But we don't have conception difficulties. Usually it's just us being in the same post code at the right time.

It took us over 3 years to have DS2 after many rounds of IVF and a late miscarriage at 16 weeks. I couldn't care less what month he was born in. Plus when he was born, he was 8 weeks early (so I had no control over the date) and arrived on my mums birthday, perfect present. So dates really didn't matter to me, just wanted a safe and healthy bub.

Nope definitely wouldn't, getting pregnant is such a luck of the draw and Babies don't come on their due dates anyway.

So many people saying they wouldn't wait. I feel a bit silly now for asking!!

We don't have kids yet but will be doing IVF (same sex couple) and will time it out with number if we can so that birthdays aren't close together. We are also hoping to time it for preferred seasons etc so no I don't think you are crazy! If we run into trouble conceiving then I would scrap what I just said and would take whatever I could get.

Nope no way. Birthdays were the last thing to consider.

I always thought I would do this, I mean who wants to share their birthday with Jesus! but we ended up needing ivf and of course my first successful round gave me a due date of 31 Dec!! I really didn't care what day DS was born just not Xmas day, well he came on New Year's Day instead and we have already realised its a bad time of year to have a birthday party (he's 2)... But I have a gorgeous child! Now I'm 37w preg with no.2 and she's due on MY birthday, which is cool coz my mum's birthday is 2 days after mine. It's nice having birthdays close together.

No I wouldn't. I honestly don't care when their EDD might fall.

We have considered it. I'm slightly inclined to skip but DP doesn't want to.
