... and Letizia is not getting any younger. If F&L want to have 2-5 children, they need to get cracking!

Had my first child at 32, got preggy 2nd month of trying and had my youngest at 37, who was an oops. I guess I just lucked out. No special treatments or doctors needed.

:o
What I looked like with a positive home preggy test(both times&#33

some women do NOT show their pregnancy --some you barely see or notice!

While the majority have large protrudeing bellies...so who knows? only astuteness
and time will tell.speaking of a catholic nation++lookat Italy and how fast
Filibetto and Cloitille married and she was pregnant!

George, I have observed the same thing myself.

imo the taller and more substantial ladies don&#39;t have obvious pregnancies ... Mette-Merit would fall into this category.

smaller women as a rule look like (as the wife of my cousin said), "an onion on a beanpole" .... and imo this would apply to Letizia.

slightly OT, What I find amazing is how most women find a graceful way of carrying their pregnancy. A minority come across as being awkward, and I wonder why ?

Why would some look the pain and discomfort pregnancy put a lot of women through ? Why ?

In a global perspectiv becoming pregnant and deliver children are real healthrisks to women - which causes millions of women / girls early death - and even more millions women / girls disabilities for life.

To make it royal :P
- think of the dramatic delivery Countess Sophie experienced this month
- think of the troubled pregnancy of Crown Princess Maxima

BTW Mette-Marit has a belly according to her due date 22.january - not a hidden one there &#33; You have noticed M-M has the pregnant look always ? When she is not as slim as she was 2001, that is

But to the topic - I do not believe Letizia is pregnant now

The late Diana&#39;s brother married a likewise skinny woman - she managed to deliver 4 children in that marriage - so some women with Letizia-skinnyness may give birth - but I do not think they have started one yet

My thoughts are more in the line of :
Why not choose april ?
Nothing official yet about Johan Friso and Mabel&#39;s supposed wedding then ...

About this wedding date I really laughed at a post (sorry I could not find it to quote it properly)

Why the delay - valentines day 14. february is free &#33;

I think with each pregnancy you carry different. My first I went "wide", my behind was noticeably bigger by the 5th month and a week before I had my son no one thought I was close to my due date. The second I just went straight out with a big belly and actually was able to just wear bigger clothes instead of maternity clothes.

Speaking of being skinny, look at Sarah Jessica Parker. How you can walk in 4 inch heels when pregnant is beyond me.

I think they choose the week after the Danish Royal wedding to show up Freddy & Mary. I just think it&#39;s plain rude to have it so close.(Maybe they didn&#39;t want Mary & Fred to attend)

Felipe and Letizia announce wedding date

24 NOVEMBER 2003
Spain&#39;s Prince Felipe and his new fiancée Letizia Ortiz have announced the date of their wedding. The 35-year-old royal will marry his newsreader love on May 22 next year.

The announcement puts an end to fevered speculation as to when the couple, who will tie the knot at a midday ceremony in Madrid&#39;s spectacular Almudena Cathedral, would make their vows.

It had been rumoured that the future king would marry in June, but the couple have already shown they are anything but predictable. The enamoured pair stunned Spain with the sudden announcement of their engagement on November 1.

Letizia, who is already one of the country&#39;s best-known TV personalities, is a divorcee without any royal or aristocratic links. She is highly respected for her journalistic work, however, and the people of Spain have warmly embraced her as their future Queen.

Her marriage to the dashing Prince Felipe will come just a week after Prince Frederik of Denmark and his betrothed, Australian Mary Donaldson, say "I do" in Copenhagen.

I was with my family in Atlanta for the Olympics, the weather was not so bad. Just remember to keep yourself hydrated. NO soda, drink water.

I agree with you, I think that they are getting married May 22nd just to show up Mary and Fred.... I feel bad for Mary and Fred&#33; That would suck to announce your wedding date and then for your buddy to announce his darn wedding to someone he barley knew just days after yours would suck... Maybe they did it that way so that Mary and Fred wouldn&#39;t attend because of the hype for their nuptuals.... Shame on Felipe and Letizia for being inconsiderate to Mary and Frederik....

Same about the engagments also, notice that as soon as Frederik announced his Oct Engagment, Felipe had to pop out with his early Nov Engagment to a stranger...... Sad huh? I honestly think that the majority of it if not all of it is just to show Fred up, if I am the only one who sees this that is sad&#33;

There was alot of factors that made that the wedding be in middle May (firstly was settle to the end of May, but there was already the wedding of the crown Prince of Jordan) and not in June. There will be elections to the european parliament in Spain in June. You can&#39;t have a royal wedding in the middle of a political campaing. The Euro 2004, as many know, soccer is a huge thing in Spain, and the royal house waited until know if the national team was qualified to decide a date. The intire country will be with the eyes in the Euro, alot of people will travel to Portugal and this will take all the attetion of spaniards (and the royal wedding must be the number one thing there B) ) Them, the logistic problem with the tv coverage. TVE will send to Portugal half of their material and staff to cover the champioships and this is almost what TVE will need to cover the royal wedding. Would be impossible to TVE cover two major events like this at the same time (it&#39;s known that TVE asked to the royal house the favour to not made the wedding in June because the Euro). If Spain didn&#39;t had qualified for the Euro, the wedding would have been in early June (most probably, saturday, June 5th) and not in May 22nd .

And the wedding was to be announced only in December, not in earlier November :P

" I was with my family in Atlanta for the Olympics, the weather was not so bad. Just remember to keep yourself hydrated. NO soda, drink water."

Yes, but Gabriella you go to FSU. Being there would be quite warm for many people though.

Yes, xicamaluca, and Spain has a chance to win it this time. No, wait. We can say that for practically every European championships. Let&#39;s hope the 40th anniversary of 1964&#39;s victory will be fortunate for the team then.


But it&#39;s not just the heat in Athens. It&#39;s also the smog.

Souvenirs created the Princes of Asturias' wedding

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/2003/...8/letiziaortiz/

Letizia&#39;s sweet treat a sellout in Spain

18 DECEMBER 2003
Her wedding to Crown Prince Felipe is five months down the road, but TV newsreader Letizia Ortiz has already found a sweet spot in the heart of her future subjects.

In what promises to be just the beginning of "Letizia-mania", the Spanish public has snapped up a series of candies created in her honour.

The limited-edition almond-flavoured "Doña Letizia" bars were created by Vicente Alonso to be sold at his café in the future princess&#39; home region of Asturias. Over ten kilos of the hand-made nougat-like holiday sweet, called turron, flew off the shelves in just a few hours.

Meanwhile, Felipe got his own taste of his bride&#39;s popularity as he met with directors of first division Spanish team Atletico Madrid. The handsome heir to the throne received a football kit, breaking into a smile after unfolding the shirt to reveal that the name emblazoned across the back read "Letizia".

What a lovely church ~ filled with history. I wonder if Letizia will be having "practice sessions" walking down the aisle with a long sheet as Diana, Princess of Wales, did. It looks as though the aisle is quite a long walk to the alter. Maybe it will depend on how long Letizia&#39;s bridal train will be.

I hope she has an excellent OB/Gyn physician to guide her through this pregnancy&#33; Quite rare for a woman of 47 to have twins&#33; ... expecially on a "first pregnancy". My best wishes and concerns that she will have an easy time of it She probably will be confined to her bed most of the time, however, that is only my humble opinion. Good luck, Geena and her husband&#33;
