Whose babies are going to be born with the extra power of the super moon??  Can't wait to find out.  I'm pulling for a super moon baby myself....  start thinking of some "lunar" names ;-P
Happy to share :-)  
Yeah, the beauty of homebirth should not be that we have to extra stress about keeping our homes extra clean!!  I do clean my kitchen every night before going to bed, but I would do that anyway, ya know?  I like that the 'could have this baby at any moment' is helping me to sort of stay on top of things.  I know the house won't be perfect when the baby comes, but that's OKAY.  (and i say that as someone whose birth is going to be filmed for the local news, haha!!)...
