If you're thinking about having a baby on November 11 or 11-11-11, you should get to work! Much like previous same number dates like October 10, 2010, this is a once in a century occurrence.
It's going to take some planning and perhaps a little luck to nail a November 11 target date for your baby.
"I would say it goes for another week or two," said OBGYN Dr. Leah Ridgway. "Eighty to 90 percent of babies are delivered within two weeks of their due date. You still have a couple of weeks left to get pregnant for November 11."
Dr. Ridgway says the closer it gets to November, she expects more parents will be hoping for that special day. She anticipates requests to induce labor will go through the roof.
