The 5th of July would be good it's a Friday and Fridays child is said to be fair of face. Wednesdays child is full of woe so hopefully Kate can skip a Wednesday. I can't remember what the other days sayings are. Having curry is supposed to get things moving as well and the long walks. Someone told my niece jumping jacks I would think that is a little difficult and very uncomfortable at 9 months pregnant. LOL Most women don't get that desperate until they are overdue. My niece tried everything with her fourth who ended up 10 days late but then was born with about 2 hours of mum going into labour. I don't think Kate will be that lucky the first is usually a long labour.

I don't like how these articles imply that a birth in the next week would mean that they've been lying. The only time given is "mid-July," and if you divide the month into equal thirds, mid-July starts in one week (sooner if you put fuzzy edges on that). Due dates are only so precise, and we're really at the point where a baby due in "mid-July" can be born without it being terribly early.

(And this swings the other way. I believe my mother was given a due date that ended up being 15 days before I was born. Add 15 days to a later date in mid-July and we won't be seeing a baby until August.)

In two weeks time it's the 17th, that's past mid July. They have closed the parking until 31st, so the hospital seem pretty confident this baby will be born in the month of July.

Mid July is 10th - 21st I would say.

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child that is born on the Sabbath Day,
Is bonny, blythe, good and gay.

Wow. Typed that from memory, then checked it on Google. However, don't ask me what I had for dinner the night before last.

I believe it's an English nursery rhyme.

My mother used to say it all the time. Got Friday wrong though. LOL It is lovely saying and I always remember Wednesday because I was born on a Wednesday. The press are already lining up with even more due on Monday. So it's looking like the baby will be here sooner rather then later. Due dates are just guesses anyway the baby will come when he or she wants too not when the press or anyone else wants it too. Over here they let you be overdue by up to about 10 days is that the same in the UK? Even if she is "late" the baby will still be born in July. I do hope she has a safe and natural delivery it's easier for the body to get over then a c section and it would mean a longer stay in hospital.

It won't be awkward; every day has some historical relevance, either good or bad.

I Agree. My cousin was born on 9/11/2007, It is not good day in history for the U.S but we still celebrate his birthday and is always a happy occasion! It doesn't have any significant to him.

If there is any truth in it, we can be sure that the baby will not be born on a Saturday and that the Archbishop of Canterbury is praying that it's not born on a Sunday either

(I am aware of the word's denotative meaning. I just wanted to make a little joke.)
