One thing I can attest to as fact is that when one is pregnant and its "anytime now", days are no longer 24 hours but stretch into a week and a week turns into a month and patience wears thin and its impossible to get comfortable and one swears that the child will always know just what that child has put their mother through. Not only that but husbands are in dire straits of being threatened never to get anywhere near their wives ever again.

Then the kid is born and everything is forgotten instantly. It was all worth the wait.

Not necessarily. Sometimes people just wait for an extra week or two for natural labor, if there's no contraindications.

I meant if she were overdue at the day of Harry's wedding, which was 22 days ago.

If Zara had been overdue 3 weeks ago (which i don't think is what empress Merel was implying but that was Biri's alternative interpretation) they wouldn't still be waiting for a spontaneous birth. It seems that about 2 weeks overdue is considered acceptable (for the health of the child) but certainly not more than 3 weeks overdue.

Here they usually don't let women go over 2 weeks late...the babies get too big.

I don't think anyone is suggesting she was due at the wedding. In fact Mike said she was 8 1/2 months pregnant.

But many women, by the last few weeks of pregnancy, are ready for it to be done. They are uncomfortable most of the time, and are just ready for the baby to be born. Even if she isn't over due right now, no doubt she is counting the moments until the baby comes.

Anything over 42 weeks there is risk to the baby. Not just a bigger baby. It can cause health issues, even loss of the baby. By 41 weeks most doctors and even midwives will at least do a membrane sweep.

No, just that she seemed mentally over it. Just wanting to be done with being pregnant and have the baby already.

I agree, those last weeks of pregnancy seem everlasting, especially if like me you are showing by four months. Perhaps we'll hear something by the end of the week.

You don't have to be overdue to be thoroughly tired of being pregnant. Those last weeks can get uncomfortable-I remember not being able to sleep and not being able to get comfortable sitting or lying down--and mine were only a day over their due dates.


I think is has to be soon now. If Zara was 8 1/2 weeks then (as reported Mike said) she's about a week over now.

It's definitely not a good idea to let a pregnancy go over the expected time too long. Speaking from a relative's experience...

In the Netherlands after 12/13 days overdue, the overdue procedure is set in, meaning that as long as the baby is OK you can go on, but with a daily check. You can still deliver at home. After being two weeks overdue a lot of women choose for induction, meaning you have to deliver the baby at the hospital.

My daughter chose for a homebirth, being 12 days overdue and she was lucky to have her child on day 13 at home with only the help of her partner. The midwife came just 10 minutes later. Mom and child are fine.

Let’s not forget Princess Charlotte went more than 2 weeks over, and the baby was stillborn after 48 hours of labour and then she died as well.

I think obstetrics has come quite a long way since Princess Charlotte's time. In the early 19th century, it wasn't unusual for a woman to have complications and die in childbirth and the infant mortality rate was quite high.

"Prior to 1900, infant mortality rates of two and three hundred obtained throughout the world. The infant mortality rate would fluctuate sharply according to the weather, the harvest, war, and epidemic disease. In severe times, a majority of infants would die within one year. In good times, perhaps two hundred per thousand would die. So great was the pre-modern loss of children's lives that anthropologists claim to have found groups that do not name children until they have survived a year."

The First Measured Century: Timeline: Data - Mortality

So, in reality, Princess Charlotte's pregnancy isn't really applicable to this discussion of Zara's pregnancy.

I'm sure Zara will be fine. Mike will be keeping an eye on her. Who knows, she may be having her baby right now.

I just thought about if she may already have given birth. Without information.

Would they do that? Why would they withhold information? I am feeling that it's way overdue. She looked so 'ready' at the wedding.
