All the newspapers' web-pages state that it was just a check-up. Of course since the palace aren't confirming or denying anything... *shrugs* it's hard to know.

We won't be told when labor starts, but I believe that the palace will announce it in a press release when she enters the hospital to have the baby.

I don't know... maybe they're hoping for less attention from the press, since it's Saturday. The doctors are at the hospital anyway, as that doesn't shut down at weekends.

Not on a saturday + not in the morning - because she left 1:30 pm --> most likely this was a false alarm imo

The palace info has stated they will not give info when Mette-Marit is getting in to Rikshospitalet.

I guess, they will confirm on some media's direct questions -

but their answer may possibly be deliberately delayed to keep the privacy.

ah, okay. There was some discussion about this when Märtha Lousise was pregnant, and they announced it then.

Of course the press is probably hiding in the bushes around all the entrances to the hospital from now until the baby&#39;s announced born if they won&#39;t get a press release that she&#39;s gone into labour

In two days (my time, anyway&#33 it will be D-day -- or at least the D-day as announced publicly. Mette-Marit and Haakon must be very anxious -- I know I am&#33;

Fireweaver...I just logged on to tell the board that Aftenposten is now reporting that Mette-Marit is in the hospital and doing well. Looks like you beat me to it&#33;

Hopefully we&#39;ll have a new royal baby soon...

Here&#39;s the article. It&#39;s late here and I have to get up early so I don&#39;t have time to translate...but for all you out there who can manage norwegian/swedish/danish...here you go&#33;



Til Rikshospitalet i natt

Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit er lagt inn på Rikshospitalet i forbindelse med den forestående fødselen, bekrefter Slottet nå i de tidlige morgentimene.

På Føden. Kronprinsessen ble innlagt i natt.

# Lytt til radio via nett - 12.12.03

- Jeg kan bekrefte at kronprinsessen er lagt inn, sier informasjonsrådgiver Sven Gj. Gjeruldsen.

Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit ankom Rikshospitalet i en kortesje på tre biler. I den midterste bilen satt kronprinsessen og kronprinsregent Haakon, som selv kjørte sin kone til sykehuset.
Fin form

Kronprinsessen har den siste tiden vært til jevnlig kontroll på sykehuset. Hun har ikke hatt noe offisielt program siden før jul, men kunne så sent som lille julaften bekrefte at alt sto bra til og at formen var fin.

Det er lange ventelister for å få føde på nye «Riksen», noe som førte til at sykehuset i fjor måtte avvise 650 fødende. For tiden er det så fullt at korridorene er tatt i bruk på barselavdelingen, men det gjelder selvsagt ikke for en fødende kronprinsesse.

- Vi skal nok rydde plass for den kongelige fødselen når den tid kommer, sa klinikkoverlege, professor dr.med. Thomas Åbyholm, til NTB for en kort tid tilbake.
Offentliggjort 4. juli

Den 4. juli i fjor, på dronning Sonjas 66-årsdag, kunngjorde kongehuset at kronprinsesse Mette-Marit og kronprins Haakon ventet sitt første barn sammen. Bare to dager tidligere ble vesle Maud Angelica båret til dåpen av sin bestefar kong Harald, samme dag som 100-årsdagen for kong Olavs fødsel ble feiret.

Det var kronprins Haakon som selv orienterte regjeringen i statsråd om at kronprinsesse Mette-Marit var gravid.

Kronprinsparets førstefødte blir nummer to i arvefølgen til tronen - uansett om det blir en gutt eller jente. Den lille skyver dermed prinsesse Märtha Louise og hennes datter Maud Angelica et hakk lenger ned på listen.
Ønskebarn

Kronprinsparet har i flere intervjuer gjennom årene gitt uttrykk for at de ønsker seg barn. Med studiene i London bak seg og en ny familieleilighet på Skaugum ferdig like før jul, kunne tidspunktet ikke passet bedre.

Storebror Marius, som fylte sju år 13. januar, begynte på Jansløkka skole like ved Skaugum ved skoleårets start sist høst.

Dagbladet&#39;s front page is saying that "all signs point to the heir to the throne being born shortly..." Hmmm...I want to wait up and see what happens but I&#39;m already falling asleep&#33;&#33;&#33;

Here&#39;s the article from Dagbladet with a VERY quick translation...

Basically, they&#39;re saying that the CP had been into the office before but now that she&#39;s been admitted in the middle of the night, that all signs point to a royal birth happening.

They then asked if they could assume (due to the time) that this wasn&#39;t planned...Gjeruldson replied that he couldn&#39;t comment on that.

The crown couple came to the hospital a little after 4 a.m with an extensive escort and police. The cars went in the backway...apparently Martha came too. It is unknown whether others in the family came with the CP.

The article then talks about how Princess Martha chose to have accupuncture when she gave birth to Maud. The hospital has said that MM will also have it, but the palace will not confirm that.

The last part of the article just mentions that she&#39;s due tomorrow (the 22nd) and that the palace issued a small statement at 5, not really saying much but that they&#39;ll issue a formal statement on the royal website after the president of the parliament is notified.


So...I guess keep your eyes out for that&#33; Good luck, royal baby watchers...I&#39;m off to find some sleep :)

Acupuncture helps? I&#39;d think that needles would not be plesant during labour. Very cool to see that Mette-Marit and Martha Louise are good friends&#33;
