My birthday is in January and I always felt kind of jipped having a birthday so close to Christmas. But my grandmother's birthday was also in January so I also felt very honored. I would love to have a January baby for this reason but the way my cycles are at the moment it looks like, if it even happened, I would be due around December 28. DO any of you feel any guilt trying for a baby that would be due so close to Christmas (or Chanukah)?

I want a Christmas baby SOOO very badly. My aunt's bday was on Christmas eve and she harbours no ill will (the always got her seperate gifts for christmas and her bday) So I believe as long as you celebrate them sperate (maybe have a birthday dinner for family and then do our christmas things with family elsewhere) it will be fine. Freja was born January 6th. I'm hoping I am pg cause there will be exactly 23 months between them lol. If I get pg next month then knowing my luck I'd give birth on Freja's bday lol

I won't mind. The only part that will suck is being out of commission since I have to get another c-section. I will take a baby when ever I can get one!!!

There is NO WAY I am going to skip a month so it's perfectly fine with me! This will be my first so I am sure I will be up to 2 weeks late anyway

Christmas baby is nice and you shouldn't feel guilty

Although, my husbands birtday is new years eve and he said he feels like no one celebrates his b-day like his sisters.... he gets christmas and b-day combination! Not to mention the good old parties for new years (lol) new years-birthday celebration

I have always said I would want my child to have his/her own birthday, but at this point it doesn't matter to me if I have a child wiht a xmas birthday.

I really have no problem with having a Christmas or Jan baby, I already know what it's like to celebrate b-day's around the Christmas season cuz my MIL b-day is on Dec. 20th and I already have a 5 yr old son who's b-day is on Jan 6, so really I'm already used to it and I welcome a new baby at anytime I am blessed with one.

I don't really want a baby so close to Christmas. We are going to skip this next cycle TTC because my due date would be Dec. 27th. I am a January baby, so I am hoping to get a baby in Jan. to help me celebrate. Good luck to all of you trying for a Christmas baby. Babies truely are a miracle, no matter when they come.

I really wouldn't mid a Christmas baby at all. There are already lots of Christmas Birthdays in my family so the baby would fit right in. My parents have always made sure to make birthdays "special" even if it is close to Christmas and I would do the same. I have a brother born on Dec 20 and he would have his party the weekend before school let out. My sister has twins born on Dec 1 and we have many more right around that time of year, so I look at it as what would be one more? But since I don't think this will be our month we would be looking at a first of the year baby...

I was born December 17th so I'm very close to Christmas. It is a hectic time to be be celebrating a birthday. On the plus side you do get many family members who live far away attending your family party because they’re in town for Christmas. If you have a Christmas baby you could name her Natalie (meaning Born on Christmas).

Well,

I am going forward for a Christmas baby, I am on cd 13 and my doc said to BD every other day starting tomorrow thru cd 20. I am on my first cycle of clomid and I am not going to take a month off. I want a baby. I have tried to control when I had a baby, and if I had a baby now mother nature is saying you will do it when I say. So I am going with the flow, hopefully not aunt flow this month! Sorry bad joke!

Nicole

I am not worried at this point when. What a wonderful gift it would be at Christmas! I just think you have to make sure you do something special--just for them.
