That is great news. I'm glad there is so much anticipation! It must be really cool being there. I have a little dream to one day be in one of these European countries when a new little royal is born and to just feel and witness the excitement would be awesome. Maybe I'll make it to Sweden when Victoria has her first!

p.s. I'm kind of afraid to log off I don't want miss anything.

Gosh, it's getting so exciting now that the time of the birth gets closer. I just hope everything will be alright and a beautiful baby arrive. But if it will be better if it's finally a boy. A little boy who WA will play football with

Yes; Amber26. You are right. I visited your country sometime ago, and I knew the East going to germany. It's like you depicted it: very green, plenty of treer. Really beatiful! Hope I may visit there again!

Since I like extended families, with mixed children (I mean boys and girls)...I hope that Princess Maxima would give birth to a boy...I have already two boys as nephews, and I'm waiting for a little girl, now. I hate monotonous things...Howevers, when one wants so hard something, destiny always decides otherwise, so... We must accept what God's wants.

I was thinking maybe the hakes mean that she is scheduled to go to the hospital on a certain date to be induced? Or maybe they just put the hakes there when her due date comes around. I've heard she's due the last half of April, but I never knew if a certain date was given. My doctor gave me a date and it was pretty acurate with my 2 girls. Sorry guys, don't mean to ramble on

Indeed not 'the nation' but all schools are closed, hundreds and thousands of Dutch have left the country and the same hundreds of thousands of foreigners are invading the Netherlands this week.



You can see it on the roads: much calmer and almost no traffic congestions this week.

I think the fences are just a precaution by the municipality of The Hague.

We even do not know if the Princess will go to hospital again, or will give birth at home, as is the tradition in the Netherlands (I believe the Netherlands have the highest rate of home-deliveries in the developed world).

The two previous pregnancies of Princess Máxima ended with natural births and without sedation, both at the Bronovo Hospital.

Princess Beatrix gave birth to three sons, three caesareans, also all three of them in hospital.
She was the first with that: all Princes and Princesses before were born in a palace.

I can't wait either! I am afraid to log off, just in case something happens while I'm logged off. I am hoping for a healthy baby, but twins would be great! lol

Well, the previous two times it buzzed in no time around that the Princess was taken into hospital. Both times early in the morning and both times she succesfully delivered in the late afternoon/early evening.

So when you hear the Princess is in hospital, we can wait some 8 to 12 hours later for the new baby.

I am so excited! I do not care what she has! A little boy would be nice but little girls are precious! I have three sisters and I myself want to have a girl someday!

It is amazing how with the three princes there is only one boy (and six girls!) for Queen Beatrix to have as grandkids!

I read somewhere that her agenda was closed all the way to the month of May. So we won't see her "oficially" until June or July I am guessing.

Women in The Netherlands have the right to take 16 weeks maternity leave (6 weeks before and 10 weeks after the expected due date). Because the princess worked till 2 April, she has actually maternity leave till 23 July. But perhaps we will see her before this date.

It's not until another 14 days, if she gets back enough strong to take part in the event.
