I grew up with two girls, sisters, born on exactly the same day 3 years apart. Its probably more common than you think. :)


I have friends who are twins, whose younger sister was born on their birthday.

Birthday paradox, innit ;)

Guessing that knowing it's a statistical quirk with a name doesn't help when it happens to you though. ((((M#4))))

More evidence for the trend- baby 2 is due the day before Koala's birthday. I had you totally wrong Maggie, but I think I've got it sussed now.

Well I still have no idea, and no fair for commenting under normal name (if indeed you have) - that's confused me even more! Hope this whole thread is providing much needed light relief...

Big hugs Maggie#4. Hope you get your head around it all soon.

I know who you are and am quite pleased I don't have to (for once) say not me!

I know who you are {{HUGS}}. Hope all goes well for you, we know we're thinking of you. Big families are great (I am the eldest of 4, my brother married one of 5 sisters, when we all get together - with our 3 children each - it's fantastic!).

Can't believe there are people on where who don't remember the Maggie threads, it's only been 2 1/2 years since I posted my Margie thread, never mind how long it is since SquashedTomatoes :wink: posted hers!!!

Popping in tonight for the first time in a while (something in the air, LB2K? *waves*). I hope you and your DH are coming to terms with it all, and getting time to talk it all through. That really is the most shitty/ astounding/ fated timing though.

Waah having a mini freak out. Chances are I'm going to have 4 boys (technically 5). I'd want a boy. Boys are great, my boys esp, but I don't want the comments 'did you want a girl?' And feeling like I have two heads. There's only so much I brush off. There is a bit of me that is hopeful it's a girl and that bit is going to be disappointed.

And then someone said it's 24wks til Christmas that means I might be 31wks at Christmas.

Sorry not making much sense...probably just hormonal. Was feeling quite calm...need to get back there. Thanks for all the kind comments.

(((Maggie#4))) Boys are awesome as you well know. But you can't help how you feel, I cried when the sonographer told me TheBean was a boy. For lots of reasons. I wouldn't change him for the world, but I needed to let go of that "grief" before I could get on with it.

But I agree, "are you going to try for a girl?" Is the most irritating question ever.

People say that to me all of the time, "aww, don't you want a girl?". People don't realise how obnoxious that question sounds. I usually find, "Im just happy that I have a healthy baby" or "No, not really" shuts them up fast enough. :D

Lots of hugs, hope you can find your inner peace again soon. x
