Should my last baby be born on the same day and month as my husbands birthday?!

I am having my 4th C-section in about 2 weeks and we get to choose the date and my husband would like to have the procedure done on his b-day... I have mixed feelings about this. What do you think?!

I don't see what the big deal is, as long as he is ok with it.

With saying that, he needs to understand that his birthday will forever and ultimately be overshadowed by your child's. I don't think it will be fair for the child to have to share their birthday if it is something the father will end up being resentful about in the future.

I am not sure how you celebrate your spouses birthdays, but in our family we always get a little cake as an acknowledgement of the day. Thats it.. no party, no gift, nothing really spectacular.
If our child shared a birthday with either of the us (the parents) I think it wouldn't extend beyond a verbal acknowledgment, or a card.. there would be no way we'd buy two cakes..

As long as he is ok with that reality, then I say "go for it"..
