    Gah. I didn’t vote bc we didn’t time it because we were just ready for baby, and as wanted as this baby is, it’s pretty much the worst timing possible! My husband is a teacher and we are due at the end of August haha. Ah well, we’ll make it work.

    @lealorali:  Let me know how it goes for you, girl! I’m tentatively planning a March/April 2016 baby because I too am a teacher!

    My SIL was a teacher when she was pregnant and she was due at the end of October…lucky for her she never went back to work after having the baby and becaome a stay at home mom. One other teacher I know, planned it perfectly and had her baby in the beginning of May.

    I’m a teacher too. We didn’t technically try to time it, but I got pregnant and was due in mid April. Perfect!! Then I had a miscarriage. I’m pregnant again, almost 11 weeks, and due the first week of August. Not the beys as I’ll miss the start of the year, but oh well!

    My friend somehow got it down for all 3 of her kids.

    Kid 1 – wanted to have her between her 1st and 2nd year of med school

    Kid 2 – wanted to have between 3rd and 4th year med school

    Kid 3 – wanted to have after 2nd year of residency.

    It worked out every single time.  Amazing.

    @FleeSircus:  Lol, how did she get the timing down pat? Obviously she understood the biology behind it, but I’m curious because I’m so impressed!

    @MissMarple:  I think they were adament about planning and they had lots of luck on their side.

    She’s a doctor and he’s a stay at home dad so it worked out well. I can’t imagine having kids in med school……

    @lealorali:  I’m a teacher, too, but here in Canada we get one year for maternity leave, so timing wasn’t such a big deal. I’m due in September, which is perfect as I’d rather not start the school year at all if I’m not going to be there. If we didn’t get pregnant this time we were hoping for a late December/January baby so I could do the first half of the year and then not return after Christmas. BUT, we were just trying to get pregnant and were more concerned with just getting pregnant rather than when.

    My cousin is a teacher and she did the same thing with her two boys. I don’t know how, exactly, she did it, but she timed it so that her maternity ended just as summmer began. Her boy’s birtdhdays are, like, 2 weeks apart.
