Superstitious Dates For Expectant Mamas

Wishing For Lucky Dates and Steering Clear of Others

Every day, an estimated 216,000 babies are born worldwide. Many suspect a spike in those birthed today, 9/9/09, as suspicious-minded mamas go for the trifecta date. Some will employ labor-inducing tactics while others may have picked the triple nine time for their scheduled C-section. Those who are still playing the waiting game may be more concerned with not having a babe two days from now on 9/11. A tragic moment in American history, many parents will do their best to keep their baby from making its debut on such an auspicious date. I know a few expectant ladies who are planning on keeping their feet propped up and never leaving bed this coming Friday to keep baby at bay for at least another day. Do you keep historical or superstitious dates in mind when labor is imminent?

I didn't focus on dates, but ended up with a Leap Year baby and an infant born on 11/11. Who knows when this kiddo will come:)

My BFF really hoped her little one would say hello to the world on 8/8/08 but was going for a natural birth so didn't resort to a scheduled c-section or anything. It was more of a passing fancy.
