Remain calm, but Monday night this week was the most common night of the year to become pregnant
A lot of September babies...
January 2, at 10.36pm. That's the most common time of the entire year to conceive according to statistics.
September 26, is the most common birth date according to figures from the UK, which is 38 weeks away and the average length of a pregnancy.
Channel Mum looked into the data and discovered 71% of parents trying for children would be having sex at this date and would explain the trend of births in the latter part of September.
In a survey of 2,139 couples, the channel found that January 2 is the day where the most couples enjoy the dance with no pants as they seek some down time after the festive season and before the return to work.
But Christmas time in general may mean even more little men and misses running around as the survey found that would-be parents admit to having "a lot" more sex around the festive season. Perhaps to help work off all that extra eating and drinking people indulge in around Christmas.
It's important to exercise after all...
In case you missed it last month, the people at Closer Online "worked out" the women's names most likely to get pregnant in 2017.
They established that the average age a woman has their first baby is around 29.8 years old, meaning that they would be born between 1987 and 1988.
They then tracked the most common baby names for girls from these years and this is the result.
