About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

The Most Fertile Time of the Year

Someone shared an article in one of the secret groups for TTCers I participate in.  It explained that September 16th is THE most frequently occurring birthday.  In fact, the whole month of September is the most popular month for birthdays with August and July coming in a close second and third.
Since I started my period today and will trigger ovulation on day 12... carry the one... add 38.... Yep.  That will give me an estimated due date of... you guess it... September 16th!  This is fantastic!  But wait just one infertile second (which happens to feel more like 32 cycles)!  What if I don't get pregnant?  Brace yourself for impact!  There is about to be a deluge of pregnancy announcements in the coming months.  Don't say I didn't warn you.  This is science folks.  Can't argue with that.

So let's look a bit deeper into this phenomenon of September 16th.  This means that conception takes place on or around Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  Is it because people are feeling festive?  I don't know about you, but Christmas Eve around here is me always scurrying to bake something, wrap a dozen somethings, making last minute purchases, and this is usually happening while I don my gay apparel that is actually sweatpants and a tacky Christmas-y jeweled sweatshirt.  Actually I don't own a Christmas sweater or sweatshirt, but I will if it means getting pregnant. 

Anyone crafty out there want to make this for me?  Sipping on some festive holiday cocktails in this bad boy has to be a recipe for a baby, right?

This ought to work for Doug. I will refrain from any borderline inappropriate comments about packages. 

Are any of you or your kids the result of some Christmas time lovin'? Do I have any "cycle buddies" who might be ovulating around Christmas this year?  I'd love to see if we can be real live examples to this September phenomenon!
