She doesn't seem to be showing that much out front. Maybe she's having a boy?

Could be. Then again, it could be a girl.

I'm guessing it's one of the two
wow, i am thinking of saying you're rigt x]

well can you say which sex the baby will be by just seeing her front? didn't know that. but i am also hoping for a boy, because like morhange said, everyone else has two of one sex. would be a pretty new thing.

Not really, it would make life easier.

But it actauuly has a lot more to do with your body type. Tall women tend to show more than shorter, Second pregnancy also show more. If you are younger than 30 you show more but it is mostly fluids.
it is an old wise tale than you can see from the way a women is carrying what the sex of the baby is, one which my mom a retired neo natal nurse utterly swears to. She predicted that Louise would be a girl and this time she thinks it is going to be girl again. Baby is possibly laying more on Sophie kidney's and bladder than out.
I'm hoping for a boy still through.

I bet you're right!

I don't care what day the baby is born, as long as the baby is healthy. I also hope the baby is born at King Edward hospital, not the one near Bagshot Park.

Kind of OT, but you can't really tell by the front, but by the back. Apparantly, if the woman has kept her hourglass figure by the end of the pregnancy, its most likely a girl, since boy's shoulders are wider. If the woman doesn't really have a waist anymore, it's probably a boy. Now, I don't really use this technique, but my mom does, and she's only been wrong once. That was with a young mother that was a HUGE workout person, and had ultratight abdominals, so instead of going out, like she was supposed to with a girl, she went wide. I doubt that Sophie works out nearly as much as this first-time mom did, but she did look wider to me than normal. And, just my noticing, girls tend to be more out-front than boys, but of course, I'm not a nurse or doctor, and I haven't had kids wet, so it's just my observations, so I could be wrong.

I don't really know about this myself, no idea, but doctors have always told me that it is impossible to tell from the outside, but maybe you can have a lucky guess!

Anyway, we have to be still patient for about three weeks.
The announcement was made on July 2nd when the pregnancy was 13 weeks old.
I suppose that they made the announcement right after the 13weeks ultra-sound control-check. That is pretty standard.

Daily Express: The World's Greatest Newspaper :: Columnists :: Sophie is set on a local birth

Bearing in mind her local hospital saved both hers and her daughter's life 4 years ago, then I am not surprised the NHS is first choice this time. The NHS takes a lot of stick, but at it's best there is nowhere better or safer.

I just hope she delivers in a London hospital, NHS or private. When she was at that Surrey? hospital for Louise, didn't they have to be transported by helicopter to London?

It is a NHS hospital, but Sophie was treated within the hospital as a private patient.

The option is available at most NHS hospitals. The NHS is the worst in the world, in fact I would compare its treatment and facilities to the poorest third world country.

Oh come on Skydragon, I love you but that's a gross slur on the NHS. It has it's problems but where it's good, it's fabulous.

But BeatrixFan, where is it good? With C Diff, WVB, MRSA, Super MRSA etc. Hospital computer systems failing, notes going walkies, NHS24 and the out of hours service? The only reasonable hospitals in this country are the private ones, IMO.

Sounds about as good as the Australian health system!

Private hospitals aren't immune from infections and errors. Anyway this is going way off track. At the end of the day it's up to the parents to be make the best, most sensible choice. I am sure that they have.

Nobody of the medical staff said that the birth will take place right on Christmas-day. That information comes from the Daily Express.
Apparently the rooms are reserved from December 25th till the family will leave the hospital.
I have the strong feeling that he/she will be born on December 31st.

They have simply choosen that hospital as after Louise 's birth it received a lot of flack, some from stuff not at all connected to the Wessex's but as Louise was born there made national news.
They have received more money over the last four years and Edward and Sophie themselves donated money to the Neonatal department so if the little one needs a incubator he might not need to go to another hospital.
But I'm afriad Sophie's TEAM of doctors are not NHS they are very specialised people. One thing I must say about the staff that attended Sophie when she went there for Louise, not a single one spoke to the press, BP gaged them all after the fact but still expected stories to come out or be made up and not a single one did. That shows respect for their work. I think the return call is a thank you.

As already pointed out, those diseases are just as prevailent in private hospitals. Look as Leslie Ash - she got MRSA in a private hospital. Sophie's no more protected in a private hospital than he is in an NHS but let's be honest, though she may be having the baby in an NHS hospital, it'll be private doctors getting the baby out.

thought many british doctors work in the nhs and have a private practice also. When you are in a private hospital in the UK and some sort of emergency occurs they take you to an NHS hospital very often because they have the high tech equipment that are often not in privat hospitals

Exactly. For any plastic surgery, you pay a private surgeon but it's done in an NHS hospital.
