Were Any of Your Babies or Are Any Due on or Near a Holiday? Are You Ready?

My 1st was due around Thanksgiving, so I got all my Christmas shopping done by October. My 2nd was due on the 1st baby's B'day so I was now in the routine of being done around Oct. My 3rd baby was due Christmas Eve, so I really had to be ready, and on top of that, she came 3 weeks early. How about you?

  • My baby is due May 31st. Not a holiday but its my cousin's b-day. May the 30th is my father in law's B day and June the first will mark the 7 year anniversary of my dh's grandpa passing. So While non of those days are holdays they are all special days in our families and we wouldn't mind if the baby made an appearance on any of those days!

  • 1st was close to Christmas, had her a couple of weeks before. We just had to take her out when she was 5 days old. My 2nd was born on Valentine's day. So hubby and I got to spend the whole day together. This one is due two days ago but we are all ready for Thanksgiving.

  • not really a holiday but my daughter was so close to be born on certain birthdays - my first due date was an aunts birthday, the second due date ( they changed it a few months in ) was a cousins birthday and then when i actually had her was the day after and the day before 2 of my friends birthdays - BUT it is the exact day I KNEW she would be here ( I told everyone months before of THAT day)

    with my son he was due on my grandmas birthday ( nov. 11 ) ... but I told everyone that the day I expected him would be Oct. 17 ( which was my grandpas birthday) ......I ended up having him Oct 14 on my cousins birthday
