Whilst I appreciate that there are millions of women who have given birth, it is somewhat of a more rare occurance for the Duchess of Cambridge to do so. Accordingly, the anticipation is rather more exciting than waiting for Miss/Ms/Mrs X from Croydon to have a baby.
Anyway, this isn't a normal pregnacy, it's been going on for ages and ages, longer than I can remember and it's hardly imminent if Kate is still cooped up at home eating chocs.

^^^True, but now it's really ramping up with probable false reports.

Agree. Unless it is reported by a reliable news source like Skynews, BBC, CNN, etc. then it not true

I'm not sure if CNN is still a trusted news source

CNN is still pretty reliable/trusted news source. I would take their words first over Fox News and msnbc

Everytime I take a look at my twitter-timeline I have the fear that I am not able to read the messages like "HRH The Duchess of Cambridge admitted at hospital" or "HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is in labor! because of the many messages hashtagged by #royalbaby.

I check only on BBC. Twitter and social media are filled with the same rumours day in and day out. I expect the BBC will at least wait to get confirmation from BP or CH before broadcasting the story.

I always get very excited when a royal baby is set to arrive!
Yet I think Catherine is still very relaxed at home, probably sitting on her sofa, watching TV and drinking some Tea

If William and Catherine are close to the Greek Royal Family and are attached to them, I see no problem why they would choose one of them to be godparent of their child, and very likely to be Crown Prince Pavlos.
In my opinion the Greek are far more close to the British than the Norwegian.

As far as I know:
Crown Prince Pavlos (Prince Charles as godparent)
Princess Theodora (QEII as godparent)
Prince Phillippos (Princess Diana as godparent)
Prince William (King Constantine II as godparent)
Princess Maria-Olympia (again Prince Charles as godparent)
Prince Constantine Alexios (Prince William as godparent)

Theoretically the godparents are to contribute to the moral upbringing of the baby. I would choose, therefore, some stable steady people like the Gloucesters as godparents, but maybe Richard and Birgitte are too old to be "on board" as the child grows. therefore, I would possibly choose one of Richard's children as godparent. Of course the Wessex's fall into the same category, and are not too old to be "on board" as the child grows. Haakon would be good in that he is of the younger, although not very young generation. The children of the Duke of Kent could provide good godparents, that is, George and Helen. I suppose that they would not have Catholic godparents like Lord Nicholas Windsor? It would be a nice ecumenical touch if they could include people like that, or even George of Kent's Catholic wife (is he referred to as Earl of Ulster or something? Peter Phillips, good choice, young, stable as far as we know, and from Anne's family, who should be honored. From the Middletons I suppose Michael or Carole are the stable ones so far. From the Spencers, the sisters of Diana or their offspring. Harry--not yet wholly stablized, but he is Uncle Harry.

I agree, That what I was just thinking, How did This thread turn into names and godparents thread? There is a thread for that.

Everytime a email show up on my phone felling me that is there a new post to this thread I keep thinking (or hoping) that Catherine has gone into Labor and is at he hospital about to give birth or other news like that. Just come on here and it be a name guess or godparents prediction.

Sorry Royalistbert. Maybe someone can transfer my post to the name and godparents thread. I don't know how to do it. Lacking nerdly skills. I type fast, but that's it.

Again it could just be prank people out for a joke but Twitter has been busy the last few minutes. A Kate lookalike was posing for photos at Kensington Palace when an ambulance arrived. Shortly after someone tweeted to say security had been increased outside St Mary's.

Is it just me or does it seem like that everyday this week around this time (10:00pm-1200am London) the Twitter Rumors about Catherine being in labor or at the hospital start?

I heard on the news this morning that there will be an official announcement that she is in labour when she is actually in the hospital and that until then everything is speculation.
