@anotherbee:My husband has similar logic so it looks like April will be our TTC starting month as well! Good luck to you!

Goodluck! just keep in mind not everyone conceives as soon as they start trying, so if you want a January baby you might have to start trying sooner than april

Ya, we know as well. His idea is that we aim for a january baby but if it doesn’t happen we just keep trying and get as close as possible. Which also means not trying right now πŸ™ Thats ok, it is a small price to pay for him to be happy and on board with TTC. And Yes, it would would be great to talk to others going through the same things at the same time, and with silly, but lovable DH’s

We both like hockey, but I wouldn’t say we are big fans. After hearing the thing about NHL birthdays, Darling Husband felt this was a good idea, not just for athletics but academics and other areas of life as well. That being said, we are going to a local hockey game in a couple days with the rest of my family. My mother is a big hockey fan.

@anotherbee: Yes I think we are the same here with the dec 31 cut off although I believe the parents now have the right to choose when the child starts school (more in the case of holding a child back).In regards to academics, I think the idea is that the child will be at an advantage because they will have that much more chance to learn skills they will need in school. I work with preschool kids as a speech therapist, kindergarten readiness is one thing I consider when recommending treatment for a child. The idea is that if a child goes to school with a disadvantage or skills not yet learned they may struggle to keep up with a standard curriculim  and therefor think that they are not a good student. Now this really applies more to children with delays and disorders, but if it were my own child I would want to give them the biggest advantage possible. It also is a big generalization, I am also an October birthday and did just fine in school, and felt quite good about being the smallest in my class because I was interested in gynastics.

Yikes, Parenting is hard and I am not even a parent yet!

@anotherbee: We are pretty close, I am Oct. 15th, as for school readiness, I think that this is only one small little factor, it didn’t really bother me too much becuse I feel pretty good about my ability to help a child learn in the preschool years, but it seems important to Darling Husband, and I can’t really complain that I have a Darling Husband who is already thinking about the well being of our not yet concieved child and the the best timing of TTCing.  

I have to admit that while my baby fever is in high gear, I am happy to have the time to prepare and feel I am ready with prenatals and finances and stuff. We had a pregnancy possibliity in the summer, and while we both felt we were ok with the idea I was surprised how not upset I was when the test was negative, only because I was not taking prenatals and didn’t really want to be pregnant at our wedding. Not to mention wanting it to be a excited and happy decision for us both, this way it feels like something we both really want. Ok too much rambling.. only 3 months til April!
