I don't know my due date for sure; it's either 12/8, 12/13, or 12/17, and either way it doesn't matter because I've been right on time, 2 weeks late, 3 weeks early, 3 weeks late, and 7 weeks early. Either way, I'm using either the labor or the pregnancy as an excuse to have a nice quiet Christmas at home! MIL doesn't know this yet and I dread the day that we finally break it to her because I already know how she'll react, and she'll do everything in her power to convince us otherwise. Actually, I prefer a nice quiet Christmas, and stuffing myself into my MIL's house with 25 other people (mostly incredibly excited and loud children on sugar highs) and three dogs, one of whom likes to lurk around the table and steal food off your plate when you're not looking is not conducive to "quiet". I'm happy that I finally have a good reason to stay at home and celebrate with my husband and our children.
On a slightly different note, are there any other homebirths who are envisioning a quiet Christmas-time birth lit by the lights on the Christmas tree with soothing Christmas songs playing quietly in the background?
