The in-laws are begging DH to give them an EXACT due date so they can plan when to fly out from California (we are in TN). I have not given ANYONE a due date (not even my husband, my own mother, or my best friends), and didn't plan to, because I went to 42 weeks with DD and was bombarded with "When is the baby coming/why isn't she here yet" from everyone, which drove me crazy. Also, MIL flew out early to try to force me to go on walks with her in hopes that I'd go into labor while she was there. I had to get my own mom to come out to get her to leave and go stay with other relatives, because she was stressing me out.
Then after DD was born, they only stayed two days, and weren't any help - didn't help clean, or bring us food or anything. I really don't want anyone coming until a day or so after baby is here, and I want them to do mo
So, I told DH to tell everyone that I'm due in late March/Early April, because I'm not likely to go early and probably will have another "late" baby. I ovulate late and have long cycles anyway. Now the in-laws aren't satisfied with that, and they want an actual date. *eyeroll* I don't know what to tell them. I guess I'll just give them a date that would be the estimated 41 or 42 weeks...? IDK. I just do NOT want them here early. I want a stress-free birth and at least a day or two to "babymoon".
What would you do?? My only concern with lying a little bit is that once my midwife gives me an EDD, DH might tell that to his parents and say it has changed. *facepalm*
