  • Bad luck because they're due on Halloween? That's silly... My best friend happens to be a "Halloween baby", and she's without a doubt THE most amazing person I've ever met in my life.

  • No way! It's good luck to be blessed with twins! Don't think about stuff like that! Best of luck to you~ :)

  • "Bad luck especially because they're mixed"? Are you both crazy?

  • There is no such thing as good luck or bad luck when it comes to due dates.

  • Congratulations! I would say that there is no such thing as bad luck when it comes to due dates. As long as you have a healthy baby or in your case, two healthy babies, who cares when they are born? It sure wouldn't matter to me as long as my baby was carried through term and was healthy at birth and on. Good luck with your wonderful babies!

  • Well a due date is a MID-point within the average (estimated) due period (38-42 weeks). You are not likely to birth on that day, but *might.* Many women will labor with multiples prior to their due date, too, but you never know.

    There is nothing wrong with being "due" on ANY day of the year~ it is a BLESSING, of course, that babies are going to come when they are good and ready~~

    Their genders are irrelevant with this, too, sounds like she is hyper-superstitious and messing with you.

  • Are you serious? Bad luck? Focus on the fact that you will have two new lives you are going to be responsible for loving and caring for and fortherget the superstitious nonsense. They will come when it is their time.
