Well for once I was right about Oscar (well the last months I was quite sure) so maybe my skills are getting better.

Expressen has published a clip from a short interview with Sofia. It was - as you might expect - Johan T Lindvall who met up with her when she came out from Sofiahemmet. It was her last scheduled event before the baby arrives.

Snart kommer prinsessan Sofias kungliga bebis | Nyheter | Expressen

Parts of the interview:

Princess Sofia says that she's had a great meeting with the staff att Sophiahemmet.
- I've been around the hospital and seen their fantastic work.
- I've heard a lot about their ambition, values and what Sophiahemmet stands for. All of that makes me very proud to represent Sophiahemmet.

Johan T Lindvall also asks Sofia how she's doing.
- Fine. Great, in fact. Everything is as it should be.
JTL: May people are asking when the next little royalty will be arriving?
- Well, I understand that people are wondering, Sofia says and laughs. Then she adds: I wonder that too. You can't really plan for this. I hope that it arrives when it's ready.
JTL: How do you and prince Carl Philip prepare to become parents?
- I don't really know how you can prepare for something like that. We're happy and hope that everything will go smoothly and that we're all healthy. That's the most important thing.
JTL: Is it a prince or a princess?
- You'll see soon enough (smiles and leave the interview).

Now I am really getting excited. In 25 days is my birthday and it would be a great gift if the baby will be born on my birthday. But this would be a very busy week for the whole SRF, as the King has 4 days later his birthday.

For some reason I have a feeling that the baby will be born in mid April. I don't know why, it's just a feeling. I'm also excited for the birth - as usual with towards the end of royal forums, I find eyes looking out for any news and updates.

Honestly I hate it but not that excited. Maybe its because we just had the excitement of Oscar There has been very little momentum on her either on the boards. Lead up to Oscar we had the count down, and last minute name guessing and gender guessing in February for a 'march' baby. It's already April and not getting the same with this one.

Hopefully he/she is not born/name announced on the 16th. The little future king of Bhutan's name is to finally be announced on the 16th. At least here on our forums, may be some competition for interest.

Happy for the couple though definitely. Hoping I am right on the sex.

Due date might be half April as was officialy announced April, but a first child tend to be later.
I would not be surprised if the baby would be born end April or even the beginning of May.
I don't expect her to be present at the festivities for the King's 70th birthday.
In Vorsten there was even the suggestion that she might still be pregnant at the festivities


Anyway glad that there is not that hysteria as there was for the birth of the Cambridge children
I would say: leave it till the announcement of the birth is made.

Its an old wives tale that first babies come late and second early. Babies come on their own schedule. Some women will have early deliveries every baby, some late every baby, some a mix.

Likely why royals like Vic and Sofia give Vague April or March due dates. As long as the baby is born within the month no need to think it early or late. And less likely to have media lining up.

It is not yet scientificaly proven but my daughter, who is a midwife sees that more and more pregnancies end up after 41/42 weeks and especially first pregnancies.
So this is not an old wives tale but an observation, not only made by my daughter but also by her collegues.

I am pretty sure it is a girl given that the couple was spotted buying female items and we now know for sure those items were not meant for Victoria's second child as speculated at the time.

I think also that it will be a girl but not because of the pink item.
First of all they both said clearly that they don't know the sex of their child and want to be surprised.
Secondly, if you buy items for yourself you don't let it wrap up as a present, so I think that the little pink item was meant as a present for friends (one of her friends recently had a little baby girl).

if a girl is confirmed, it will be fun to see that the whole family will be started with a girl, nice coïncidence

If the little child will set its first steps into the world on 16 April and the Crown Princess will get godmother, Victoria will have two godchildren sharing their birthdays.
