I totally agree that the first 6 weeks were easier for me to handle than the next 6 weeks. The only other thing I would add is that you never know how your delivery/birth will affect you. With Eleanor, I had gestational hypertension and had to be on magnesium for 24 hours after she was born. I was totally out of it, and I don't think the hospital would have allowed her to room with me if DH wasn't staying with us. Then it took me a few more days to get home and really get back to normal. It might be nice to have somebody willing to help during the first few days only if you have some kind of complication that makes your recovery more difficult.
