As someone who is exactly 10 years older than you this October 12, I am going to agree with the rest of them.  It sucks.  It’s shitty and it’s ok to be bummed out.  Your mother should remember your birthday and should have tried to get a ring that was not just like yours and should be the adult here.  The feelings you have are ok–you’d have to be super human to not be a little wtf mom.

However, acting on those feelings is going to bring a lot of crap you really don’t want to deal with.  So just smile, vent to people who will understand when you need to and internally sigh, shake your head and make do with what you’ve got.

Congrats to you both and happy birthday 1.5 months early.  😀

It’s not planned for your actual birthday so I don’t see what the issue is. As for the ring, your tastes are probably very similar to your mom’s its that simple.

Not trying to be rude, but I’m seriously thinking whats the big deal, its the day before your birthday, maybe she thought it would be a nice way to celebrate both at the same time and in a nice city.

@Britk:  The fact that she wanted to go with that specific date makes even more sense, the most popular dates are the ones that only come every turn of the century. like 11/11/11, 12/12/12 etc.
