Have you ever planned to have your child on a certain day or month?

I heard of many people that have tried to have children on certain days or within certain months, for various reasons. When we had our children, everyone thought that we had planned it that way as well, but we didn't. Our first born was born in Feb. which is my birth month. Our second born was born in July which is my wife's birth month. Our third born was born in Jan. which is the month we got married. Sound ironic and well thought out as well as planned, but we didn't plan them that way. We were more or less just enjoying our post marital bliss. So have you ever planned to have a child on a certain day or month? Did your plans go as well as you hoped?

Neither of mine were planned at all. If we would have had a third one though, we would have tried for November, as the first two are November and several other people in the family are as well. I like Thanksgiving babies. Helps me remember how thankful I am.

When I fell pregnant with my second daughter and found out she was due near my birthday I had hoped to have her on my birthday but she had other ideas and came 2 days before my birthday but its also 2 days after my mums birthday so it worked out nicely for both of us. With my first daughter she was born on the 12th which is mine and my partners lucky number, we met on the 12th, got together on the 12th, well we have done alot on the 12th of every month so when she came on the 12th people thought we had set it up lol!
