Designer baby born 11.11.11

Well if you want a baby born on 11th November 2011, you ought to start some love making tonight.

http://uk.lifestyle.yahoo.com/family...icle-ez4w.html

Imagine your baby's birthday was the 11/11/11 - it's not a birthday anyone would ever forget! Any couples hoping to conceive around the 18th February (this Friday) could be in with a chance of their baby being born on the 11th November 2011, (or 11/11/11) says fertility expert Zita West. Of course, even if you do conceive this week you may not have your baby on the11/11/11 or even that week; pregnancy isn't always 40 weeks long and some babies can come earlier or later.

11/11/11 is okay if you're painting with a broad brush. Now if you can fine tune it down to 11am and 11 seconds, now that really would be something.

A baby I know of will be 1 on 11/11/11. How is that for good timing?

Re: Designer baby born 11.11.11

And please, let's have no-one explaining that this would really have taken place in the year 0000 and it wouldn't have been the first of the first as there have been mistakes in the counting...

One-upmanship. My brother was born 4.4.44 in the days when it was much harder to get it right.

Ah, come on Lou. You didn't have to spoil my fun. Anyway, my brother was probably born at four minutes past four, but in those days you didn't have watches and clocks all over the place so nobody checked. (I have my fingers crossed behind my back )

Re: Designer baby born 11.11.1.6.1

I was hoping my son wasn't going to be born on 06.06.06 - that was very close to his due date. Newspaper articles said that c-sections were being delayed past that day and it would have been a very unfortunate birthday.
