Hello ladies, just moved into the 3rd Trimester today, very exciting! Just wondered if anyone knew the answer to this question: I'm due around 12th Dec. If the baby is late (which I gather most 1st timers are) then chances are I could have it on Xmas day! My Mum said that this was highly unlikely as that the hospital would rather not deliver babies on Xmas day due to staff shortage, and would be more likely to get me in and induce me earlier. Anyone else heard this?
