They might change there minds about your dates. Chances are though your friends baby is on the smaller side and yours id on the larger. Even if they change their minds about when your due chances are it'll be a matter of days rather than weeks difference. How far are you? Is your 20 week scan soon? Sounds like you are only half way through at most you've still got 20 wks to go so try and relax. Easier said than done I know. Maybe begin to ask your friends to move there stuff and give them a deadline as to when it needs to be gone by?

Good luck honey.

Hi Joanna, I very much doubt they would have got your dates wrong. When you have your dating scan, the ultrasonographer measures the circumfrance of the babies head and its the software within the ultrasound machine thats says how many weeks old the baby is.

Try not to worry yourself. If you feel neccessary maybe you should explain the situation to your friends and kindly ask them to start thinking about moving their stuff out. But remember, for the first 3 months or so of the baby being born, that babyw will probably be in your bedroom. So try not to worry yourself hun.

Hope that helps
