Frederik at work today

The fact that Crown Prince Frederik actually attended his scheduled task at 10 AM today, does indeed support your idea about Crown Princess Mary's contractions tuesday being a false alarm

14/09 05H.K.H. Kronprinsen foretager overrækkelse af DSB’s Brunelprisen ved en højtidelighed, som finder sted i Meldahls Smedie på Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole på Holmen, København, kl. 10.00.

I'm praying for the Crown Prince and Crown Princess.

I'm really hoping that Mary's baby is healthy and I am sure that he or she will bring joy to his/her family and to Denmark.

Doctors say that early contractions like this can be the sign of early labour, or it can just be a "test" run. But the baby should be sufficiently developed by now to manage just fine later in life if it is born now. Of course it would be the best for it to be carried to term, but... nature might want it differently.

I do hope everything will be alright in the end.

What frightening news! But if Frederik's back at work then I think it's a good sign that Mary and the baby both are okay.

I think Braxton Hicks (spelling?) contractions (false contractions) are commonplace. Many moms to be that I've known have experienced them. I think they are particularly commonplace with first time pregnancies -- something about your body preparing for the "big push" as it were.

Last year a friend (pregnant for the first time) experienced what she was absolutley convinced were false contractions at 4 in the morning so she took her time getting to the hospital. (She even took the time to make her bed and let her husband pop by the drive thru for his morning coffee!) But when she got to the hospital the nurses looked at her and knew immediately that they weren't false contractions, so she actually had her baby two weeks early.

I hope everything is fine for Mary and the baby even if the baby is developped enough to live if he is born now .... but he should wait a little again !!

I pray the baby is ok. I believe that first pregnancy's are difficult. And if a Higher Power is ready for us to have a new prince/princess of Denmark, today's technology allows him/her to be ok if the baby is born prematurely. Boy, will the baby be spoiled!

She is going to stay at the hospital for the time being. It can't be said if the contractions she had were false alarm or the beginning of the labor:

poor mary, that must be so stressful for her. I hope she recovers quickly.

its perfectly normal to go on maternity leave 6 weeks before the due date.

Both her and the baby will be fine.(the power of positive thinking!) It's just her body's way of telling her to slow down. Her body and the baby are both getting ready for the "big entrance" into the world.
Not to make comparisons, because everyone & every pregnancy is different, but I carried my daughter just like Mary is carring her baby. Very small, and all in front. Once the baby "dropped" into position, I had to slow down and pretty much do nothing. She ended up coming 2 weeks earlier than I thought! And she was a very healthy & happy baby much to my relief!:)

I hope and pray for Mary and her baby, I hope everything will be okay... It's so worrying to hear these news, especially since it's quite a while yet before she's due...

It says in the press release that "CPss Mary's condition is stable and she is feeling well." That, and CP Frederik going to his scheduled event is a good sign.:) It must have been quite scary for F&M being first time parents and all. I'm sure Mary is being well taken care of while she is in the hospital and will be when she goes back home.

I think the actual due date is probably less than 6 weeks since courts may add some time on to throw off the press. So if the worst was to happen and the baby was born now (knock on wood!) it would almost definitely survive and his/her long term development would not be affected. However fingers crossed it waits a while longer and comes after the full nine months.

I'm sure everything will turn out fine! Fred's back at work and Mary's said to be doing well, so those are good signs!

Not if they're coming before the due date. Mary and Fred's baby would probably be ok if it were born now, but it's best to keep him/her inside for as long as possible.

From The Copenhagen Post-part of the article

Mary's child likely to survive

Doctors say that Crown Princess Mary's child will probably not be seriously affected if it is born now, six weeks premature .

Mary and her baby will be fine. She is receiving a royal treatement now that she is not an ordinary person any more. I am sure she would cancel her duties and stop wearing high heals as we saw in some of her recent events. Hope all the best to her and to the baby!

I was very surprised to see this being the subject of message boards. I logged on this morning hoping to see pictures and articles of her scheduled engagement today, not hearing of her being hospitalized. The good news is that she is well and at 34 weeks babies are generally healthy enough when born that early. I hope she gets lots of rest and that the baby stays put until it's scheduled to arrive.:)
