Yes actually!!! My husband is an accountant and he's really busy with work. A few days after my due date would be great- like the 13th or 14th. It's before the tax season deadline but he won't be as busy then because they file extensions.
On his due date is good for me! I want to have my 12 weeks start the end of April so I can stay on maternity leave until the end of July. Hee hee. I really want to have most of the summer off work! So little baby...stay there til your due date of April 28th! (or as close as possible)
I've been getting myself into the mindset that I will go past my due date so that when I do, I won't be upset. Not only will it give us enough time to move if I go to 40 weeks, my baby will be more developed than what it will be if it were born at 37-38 weeks. I just don't want to go past 42 weeks!!!
Barring any existing medical issues, it's generally heathiest for baby to come a little late (about a week). There is a lot of brain development that happens in those last few days and it can really make a different in the temperament and health of the baby (Harvard just published a study on this).
So I'm hoping to go late since, as of now, I don't have any issues that would make it better for her to be outside of me rather than growing on the inside.
I wouldn't mind going to my due date (or even the +2 weeks after)...I love being pregnant. The only reason I hope I go slightly before 40 weeks is because I don't want another c-section if possible. With me being on blood thinners they are not going to let me go past my DD.
There is so much going on in my life right now that I'm seriously hoping this baby stays put at LEAST until mid-April. My 'guess date' is April 15 but my midwives' 'guess date' is April 21, so I have until May 4 before I hit 42 weeks by their standards. Making it to the 21st would be fine with me. Heck, making it until the 13th would be fantastic!
