Hi -- you have been through several reviews already and this one should be no different. Do discuss the upcoming arrival with your IP -- giving them the heads up means everyone can plan ahead. You might get a payment break while on maternity pay, or be able to reduce payments -- or even, as you will be so close to finishing anyway ( assuming no equity to be dealt with) they might even consider payments to date to close it early. Big breaths, don't get flustered and take it at your own pace.

Congratulations on the pregnancy and your IP will have dealt with similar cases many times before. Perhaps creditors may allow early closure or a payment break as they rarely seek bankruptcy.

I agree with Foggy and Michael - no need to worry just speak to your IP.

Best of luck.
