I am so excited I keep on logging on to the forum expecting an announcement but as yet nothing. When is her actual due date? She will probably go into labour over a weekend when I can't check and by the time I get to work it will almost be "old" news

I understand your impatience...to be honest, I confess I created some days ago a "Google Alert" on the subject, it's supposed to pop-up on my laptop as soon as the big news hit... 'and I did the same for the next royal births in Denmark and Spain.

Back to Princess Mathilde: I'm feeling the baby will come on Saturday October 1st. Just a feeling I have.

I should do that too but I am on the internet at work and I don't think my boss would appreciate the interruption to my work.

Was September 15 her last public event? I bet she's going to give birth this week.

Yes, that was her last public event. I thought she looked very ready to deliver at that point so I expect it any day -- and can hardly wait!

Thank you very much for the pictures Cathérine.:) They're great. I've looked for pictures at some of the photo agencies for this event, but couldn't find any. I thought for sure there would be pictures, since there have been a lot of pictures from a lot of Philippe's latest official duties. Glad you were able to find some.:)

About the baby. Just when we thought they couldn't fool us, they did. Some of us, including myself, thought the baby would be born in September, because Elisabeth and Gabriel were born the month before the month they were expected for. But clearly that hasn't happened, so 1-0 to Philippe and Mathilde. Hope too we'll see a new Belgian royal soon.

Elisabeth was born premature, though, so that wasn't trickery on her parents' part. And Gabriel was born in the latter half of August, so they could have just under-estimated how far along Mathilde was in her pregnancy.

How do you know that about Elisabeth? Just curious because I have never heard that. Is it also true that CP Mathilde had a C-Section with Elisabeth and, if so, were there any problems with the pregnancy that people know of?

At a certain point in the pregnancy it was anounced Mathilde woudn't be performing any royal duties anymore, because she had to rest. There were no real medical problems, she was just getting overtired. Apart from her 'royal job', she was also preparing her exams (she was studying psychology at the university of Louvain) and t was probably a bit too much. But at the end of the pregnancy (really the last weeks), she went back to work anyways.

Elisabeth wasn't born premature. Mathilde had a C-section because the umbilical cord was wrapped twice aound the baby's neck and she was in breech presentation.

That's not premature. Premature means born at least for weeks early.

No, it must depend on where you live. Premature where I live is considered anything a week or more before the due date. My niece was born 10 days before we expected and the doctor described her as premature.
