    I am having the same dilemma! My family has to fly across the country to be here, and I’m really afraid they’ll either come too early or too late. I’m not sure what to do.

    I’m in the same boat. I’m going to plan for a few days after my due date because as much as I’d like to have my parents here on the actual day, it’s more important to me that they be here after the baby is born to help.

    This is soooo tricky. My Future Sister-In-Law had the same problem. Her Mum ended up going 5 days before her due date… but Future Sister-In-Law went 10 days over-due. Her Mum only ended up being there for a few days afterwards because she had to fly home for work 🙁

    A lot of first time moms go over their due date, but most practices don’t want you pregnant much past 41 weeks (yours may be different though, I’d ask when/if they would induce you if you went past your due date). If she comes a few days before your due date she can help with last minute things around the house, such as cleaning so you don’t come home to a mess or any meal prep! 🙂 Then, even if you’re late, she would probably have at least a week with baby before she heads home.
