If you want to give your baby the best birthday ever — 11.11.11 — then head to bed four days AFTER Valentine’s Day! Experts explain why.
Couples have been bombarding fertility doctors with the same unique question — how can I guarantee to have a baby on the luckiest day of the year? “They want to know when to have sex to have a baby on November 11,” says Dr. Jamie Grifo, program director of the New York University Fertility Center. “11-11-11 – people really want that birth date for their baby.” HollyMoms, does the date you give birth matter that much?
Dr. Grifo explains to CNN how couples can make their baby birthday wish come true: A woman who conceives February 18 will have a November 11 due date, provided she has a regular 28-day cycle. But of course conception is not an advanced science. Since cycles vary and most pregnancies aren’t exactly 40 weeks, conceiving a child anytime in the next week or two could get the coveted 11-11-11 digits for your little one. Valentine’s Day sex, for example, could very well land you a baby on November 11.
The next chance to have a baby born on a date with all six numbers being the same is November 11, 2111. Whoa!
