Avoiding a December baby?

Anyone else taking time off in March to avoid a Christmas baby?  We are for several reasons:  my birthday is 12/13, my brother's is 12/24 my SIL is 1/3, we often fly cross country in December, we'll be able to have more funds for birthdays in other months.

Hmm, good thinking! Of course, depending on where you live (i.e. New England, like me), winter in general would be a really difficult time to have a baby. And the summer would be really hot to be in the final stages of pregnancy... Basically, no time is really perfect, so maybe I'll just try to not think about it too much and trust God to do the right thing. I'd probably mess it up anyway!

I already have a dec. 2 baby, and we have discussed taking next mth off, but we're not..We finally got some hope so neither of us wants to break.

I'd be happy with a winter baby. I have one in September, one in july and one in October. My sister has April, October, 2 in June. It'd be nice to have one in December. Plus, my birthday is in December :)

I came close. My daughter was born in november. After my first pregnancy I would like to try and keep away from a baby being born that far into winter. i know I can't completely avoid the chances but I would like to. I'm also in New england so I was nervous about all the colds being around my newborn. I'm hoping for a summer baby next time around.

Yeah I understand why you would want to take off March as well. We have been ttc #1 for three years with a loss in november so we are just getting back on the ttc train so we dont care when our baby is born just that it is! :D
