What A Coincidence!

February 14, 2008 2:04am CST
My mothers birthday is August 10, my birthday is August 11, both my 11 year old and my 9 year old were born on August 12. My 11 year old son was born at 8:21 a.m. and my 9 year old daughter was born at 8:21 p.m. Exactly 2 years, 12 hrs apart. Makes for quite a birthday. And believe it or not, I got pregnant after my 9 year old and guess what my due date was? You guessed it August 12. What a coincidence. Do you have any dates in your family that are as big a coincidence?

I guess I never thought about 12 being a lucky number, but I suppose that yes it is. After all I have two beautiful children that were born on that date.

wowww this is amazing. really a coincidence. and your new babe's dueon aug 12??? how cool is that?? yep, if the youngest is born on aug 12 too, grins, well it's a big day for you. seems like the month august is really good or lucky for you. for me, i don't think there are any dates that have such a big coincidence. in fact, i don't think there's anything interesting at all. you're really lucky.hehe take care of yourself.

No, I'm not having a baby, that was 9 years ago that I was pregnant and due on August 12. I never had that baby. If I had I would have had 3 in diapers at the age of 40. LOL.

That is so neat, and yes, I have a similar story. My birthday is August 9, my sister was born on my very first birthday, yes, on August 9th!!! My son (July 26) and daughter (July 16) are three years and 10 days apart, both weighed in at exactly 6 lbs 10 oz. July is our biggest month of birthdays (brother Jul 8, wife 9th, bro 11th, sister-in-law 12th, stepdad 15th, and my kids as above).

And I couldn't help but add...monthly & weekly phenomena! Sep 11 Attacks on America Oct 11 Anniversary Nov 11 Veterans Day Dec 11 Brother's B-Day Also, Dec 4 (nephew's bday), Dec 11 (bro's bday), Dec 18 (this same bro had a son born this day), Dec 25 (Christmas), Jan 1 (New Years). Easy to remember, everything is a week apart !

My husband's exwife's birthday is January 21 and my exhusband's new wife's birthday is the same day, different year. The first name's of these two women actually rhyme too. It's a little weird, right? Then, this year, my son started dating this girl in his class. Her birthday is the same day as my husband's. She will be 16 this year. He will be 61 this year. How weird is that??

Oh, also I know a woman who woke up on her oldest son's first birthday. When she stepped out of bed her water broke. She quickly baked a cake for her one year old, and after that she left him with the babysitter to serve the cake while she went to the hospital to have his baby brother on the SAME DAY one year apart.

Some people believe there are no accidents, no happenings, or coincidences. They believe in a Grand Design of which everything is a Part. Imagine a Creator creating a Universe and leaving anything to Chance? At First Glance your Post sounds Like a compilation of coincidence, but I can't imagine this to be nothing but chance. Take some time to think about it. Can you really believe this to be coincidence?

Mine isn't quite as spooky as yours. My grandmother's birthday was August 31. My mom's birthday was August 30th. I was supposed to be born August 29th but got impatient and came on the 28th. My sister was supposed to be born on the 24th of August but came on August 10th. Her first daughter was also due the 24th but came on the 11th of August.

It might not be quite as spooky as mine, but it sure does come awfully close. LOL.

That is really a neat coincidence. My daughter was due on my husband's mother's birthday and we tried so hard to get me to go into labor. We went on an off-road, bumpy jeep ride and everything, but she didn't come for another week! My son was due on my mother's birthday and was born on her birthday! It would have been neat to have each child born on mine and hubby's mother's birthdays,but babies tend to come only when they are good and ready! Ha!

Both my daughter and my son had to be induced as they were both two weeks overdue. I tried walking at the beach, bumpy rides in a jeep also, but as you said they don't come until they are good and ready. In fact with my daughter I was induced at 6 in the morning, given an epidural at noon. By the time she came that night the epidural had worn off.

I have six siblings and all of our birthdays are scattered. None of us were born in the same month, believe it or not! Obviously, my parents did a good job of spacing us out! (LOL) The funny thing is that the second to last child, my younger sister, was actually born between my dad's and my mom's birthdays. My dad's birthday is on June 5 and my mom's birthday is on June 18. My sister was born June 14. It must've been interesting for my mom having a daughter born only four days before her birthday! I'm sure it was a great birthday present, though. I find it interesting that both of my parents were born in the same month six years apart...and my sister was born several years later. My fiance and I started dating on May 14 almost four years ago. He asked me to marry him on February 14 (this past Valentine's Day), which was our 45-month anniversary! I know it might seem odd to keep track of month anniversaries, but I thought 45 was a wonderful number, and we got engaged only three months before our 4-year dating anniversary! Very exciting. Great discussion. It really made me think!

that is really bizzare, we do not have anything like that in our family - just one daughter is born on her aunt's birthday. I had a friend though who was born on the 18th of the month and 3 of her children were also born on the 18th of the month - one was born on the 8th, and her husband was born on one or the other I forget.

Not as cool as yours. I did do the numerology on my girls just for fun and was amazed to find that the 2 with the same dad, their birthdates added up to the same number and so did their names. My 2 grandchildren; one was born on 12/6 and the other on 6/12...makes for easy remembering!
