aw thanks......4 yrs only because I started late I found my soul mate when I was 33 and was too busy buying house and making a new life in a new town to think about babies!!! Its kind of expected to be a long journey at my age.....
and I have skipped cycles for vacations and one summer before we got married....so not a full 4 years...thank goodness or I would loose my sanity!!!!
I hope I get to celebrate Christmas in the hospital huffing and puffing having my baby!! haha That would be the best present ever!!!!!!
I thought when we first talked about ttc I wouldn't want to have a Christmas baby after reading people felt cheated but then I thought hang on a minute.......I am a Christmas baby and I don't feel cheated in the slightest! I have never been given joint presents by anyone close to me unless I asked for something I wouldn't have been allowed otherwise as it was too expensive, so that really worked in my favour Plus being born just before Christmas, my birthday is always the start of the celebrations - it was frequently the last day of school or now as an adult we quite often we go out on 'mad Friday' to celebrate finishing work for the Christmas break and my birthday so there is a good turn out with people really in the mood for partying. Plus everywhere is decorated with lights and sparkly things so it feels magical. I've decided it not so bad after all!
I really wanted a christmas 'baby' - aww how cute when they are all dressed up and what better way to introduce to the family
But then the more i thought about it the more i started to go off the idea for a number of reasons.
1) Its very cute for the year baby is born but i have an large family and i really couldnt afford a birthday on TOP of what i already have to spent at xmas (baring in mind i'll also have a another person to buy for xmas too)
2) My bday is Dec 14th and as i got older i got the whole 'oh this is your birthday AND xmas pressie together' - which sucked!
3) If it so happened that i went into labour ON christmas day/eve and had to stay in i would feel awful that i had missed out on christmas with my other babies
4) And then lastly as i got older i noticed that other people can't really afford to do things - activities/days out/holidays etc - on my birthday as they are all skint buying xmas pressies
Hey all, dh and I are not due to start trying for another month, but had a condom split when we last dtd, we are now on that 2 week wait, if I am pregnant, I will be due around 12th Dec. Dh is really upset as we planned on starting to try next month for a jan 2013 onward bub, I kind of think it would be exciting to have a Dec baby, am trying to look on the positive side of things!! But whatever happens, I really hope lo is healthy!
Is it really that bad having a december baby??
Mrspeanuts im glad to hear you love your christmas birthday!
Vicyi- my father-in-law has a december birthday and we usually end up not getting him much for his birthday and get him a bigger gift for christmas.. although he is an extremely difficult person to buy gifts for so that may be the bigger problem. But thats what im afriad of but i also think once you get to a certain age its not so much about the size of the gift as it is the thought put behind it. Im also worried about missing christmas with the two kids i have now. I think that would bother me more then anything else.
