Now. Get him fitting it tomorrow if you will definately have the money. Sooner better than later! You could be pg for another 6 weeks. I know you think you won't be - but nothing is certain.

I wouldn't do it when you have mindees around, are you on ML now?

Personally I think I'd want it done before baby arrives. x

Are mindees parents OK that you will be getting the work done while their DC's are there? We had our kitchen done and was fine with our DC@s but wouldn't even contemplate it if people were paying me to have their children, equally I wouldn't be happy sending my DC's to a building site.

Get it done now.

I vote now. My only concern is that the midwife might object when she comes round next week...

We are in a similar situation, waiting for various things to be done so we can move in - got my 37 w home visit booked next week so HAVE to be in & have it habitable by then. Argh.

Sorry - sounded a bit rude! I was just trying to be helpful by being definite. But I really think it's a good idea.

Best of luck, whatever you decide.

Then get it done now.

Get it done NOW!!!

Look you are not going in to labour next week, especially IF you have the kitchen done. Your body will only labour when it is safe to do so. So get the kitchen done and then wait for your waters to pop all over the newly installed flooring. Which kitchen is it btw?

Honestly this is a no brainer....

Now. You will not be having your HB in the kitchen, I presume, so MW has nothing to worry about. Have done kitchens with toddlers twice. Will never do it again.

Now. My kitchen was a two-week job and was finished on my due date. Lovely kitchen fitters were very twitchy that I would go into labour while they were in the house (and I was enormous!) so had an incentive to finish on time. But I wasn't planning a homebirth, had no other DCs to consider at the time and fitting was very straightforward - only issue was cracked glass in the door of one cabinet. And DD was two weeks late. Good luck whatever you decide.
