Uff! I’m tired just of translating the program… I guess Letizia is definitely not pregnant, after all… :o

Not to add wood in the fire, but Mary went to Japan in the early stages of her pregnancy, so, this doesn't mean anything, yet... let's just wait a while longer... (after all, we've been waiting for almost a year;) )

Hi lucys! You were missed!

Regarding their trip, I read somewhere that they might visit the Spanish pavillion at the AICHI Expo in Japan... Maybe it's this trip?

I don't think so, because Spain's day is in late July--Haakon, Victoria, WA and Maxima, and Fred and Mary all went to Japan on their respective country's National Day. I would imagine Felipe and Letizia would do the same.

Personally, I think that this time the pregnancy rumours are true. Pictures are of course tricky but recently their have been a number of photos where she looks pregant. Only time will tell.

Well, i have to confess that i can not wait mucht longer for the anounce. I studie in Spain so ... i am start soffering from the spanisch stress. I post 2 pics in Letizia thread that i think, i say i think, see some baily. But my eyes are very bad.

I, too, would LOVE to hear an announcement of a new little one on the way in Spain, but I suppose time alone will tell if Letizia is pregnant. ;)

Emily 05-05-2005 07:39 PM

OK, I have been trying to resist comments about a pregnancy, too, but I think CP Letizia is looking a little pregnant in some angles of photos. And.....?wishful thinking.....I think CP Letizia has that newly pregnant "dazed" look at times and yet at others there is a certain sparkle between she and CP Felipe that is just a little different than before. I guess time will tell. I just hope that if they are wanting a child soon that, that blessing is given to them.

Is it true that the Royal House only announce pregnancies after the first trimester?

Yes, it the common practice of most of the Royal Houses in Europe, unless there are other more pressing circumstance that forces them to issue the announce earlier.

They announce after the first tri as it's usually during the 1st tri that anything can happen - like miscarriage.

Yes, as I said before, I'm also convinced that she's pregnant indeed this time. I really think something's going on with her belly, and I'm even more convinced of that, when I see photos like these I'm posting bellow, where Felipe is looking at the belly of his lovely wife... :p
I just find it awkward that a woman in the early stages of her pregnancy will perform such a tiring week, as we will have from next Monday on...
But, you're right, only time can tell (keep your fingers crossed)...

A few more photos from yesterday's visit to ICEX. From SeegerPress:

Besides, there was one more thing that came to my attention. Letizia is wearing an outfit that she wore an year ago - before the wedding and right after the honeymoon - Since she's lost weight since that time, this can mean that she's already put on some weight due to the pregnancy and then she's turning to old outfits to disguise it better.

Did you understand or I confused you even more?
