Baby Sussex could be born on Charlotte's birthday.

Please no! No clashing of dates with any other Royal. I've been saying for days 'Maybe it will be today' but I didn't want the birth on Louis' birthday either.

Not that it is up to us but I hope Baby Sussex isn't born on the 29th or May 2. That is just media nonsense no one needs and Baby Sussex can have his/her own birthday not associated with the Cambridges.

I agree with you. So I pray "Oh Lord, let everybody have their own day".

So now we wait Ö

At least right now Baby Sussex isn't late yet according to Meghan's late April or May time frame.
These memories of Georgeís birth are a good reminder that first babies are often late. It could still be a while if a wait yet, folks, so letís try to stay calm!

At this rate, I might pop that champagne before this baby gets here and just get another bottle to toast.

For some reason, May 5 popped into my mind, for absolutely no reason. If Meghan's due date is this week (big if) then she may have a while to go.

The latest her due date would be is next week. Given that she had her 12 week scan before Eugenie's wedding. What is the point where doctors will not let pregnant women go past due date? Is it 42 weeks?

The usual rule of thumb is that if everything looks good, and there are no signs of fetal distress, then doctors will usually let the mother go until 42 weeks. After that there is usually a discussion about options, whether that would be induction or something else.

So we can potentially have three more weeks. Screw that, I'm opening the champagne tonight.

Remember when we all thought she'd be due early April or even late March? Some were saying possibly late February. Guess the joke's on us.

Oh I can picture it all now. As Charlotte would be the eldest, she'd be playing the matriarchal hostess and directing traffic and keeping everyone in line and making sure her littler cousin gets the first piece of birthday cake and that her littler cousin promptly says "thank you" to the person that gave him/her the present just opened and reminding everyone *not* to slip sweet stuff to Lupo and most of all, no running in the house.

Charlotte does seem to have the "take charge of things" kind of attitude.

I was one of the few who hoped for a late March birth. Oh boy, we were all wrong ahah

I dreamed last night that the baby was a girl, and that Meghan had a C-section.

Drats. Here I sit and not even having any kind of dreams of babies whatsoever and even if I do tomorrow under anesthesia, I won't remember any of it for a hill of beans. I feel deprived and left out of things. Maybe I should look for storks in my hazy state and determine what color blanket that stork is using.

At least you folks are sharing your experiences with me. Much appreciated.

Yeah, it is one of the monarchy's flaws. Not always the best-fitted person becomes a heir.

Iím not sure that a take charge personality would be the best fit for a constitutional monarchy.

That description fits neither The Queen or her father, yet they both proved to be suitable monarchs.

At her due date, the doctors will perform an internal examination. If she is starting to dilate, they may proceed to induce. In most cases, they wait until 41 weeks. If she hasn't dilated, they will induce at 41 weeks. The reason is there is a higher risk for maternal complications and higher stillborn risk from 41 weeks.

If she is due this Saturday, April 27, that would have made her 12 weeks on Eugenie's wedding, and late April/Early May delivery. I think she's due today, more likely.
Maybe things are less aggressive in the UK, but letting an advanced maternal age first time mother go to 42 weeks would not be typical in the US, more like concern after a few days over. and I doubt they would let one go more than a week.
