Lies Aren’t Lies, Right?
heard this from so many experienced big bellies that we just

We've been told that
when giving out your due date, you should add one month to your
projected due date. We’ve also had readers suggest adding
two weeks to your date.

are not exact! As you know, everyone’s body is

instead of having everyone and the plumber call you on your due
date when you’re sitting at home in anticipation of your

bundle of joy right here in our arms… the baby was born last
week and yes, everything is wonderful.”
a white lie worth it? YOU DECIDE.
