After week 42 the placenta mostly degradates and she will be induced as soon as that happens.

I don't think that the trip to the Netherlands is of any indication that we can expect the birth before or during those days.
If the baby is born a few days before or expected during those days I am sure that the trip will be cancelled.
A doctor will not let her go past 42 weeks without induction. It may take longer, as induction is not instantaneous labor, but they wouldn't wait. Unless she just didn't go see a doctor. Many doctors wont wait past 10 days over due to induce.

If there was a chance of them cancelling the trip, they would not have announced it in the first place. Even if it is on his schedule, his schedule didn't need to be made public.

For Meghan’s sake, I hope from the bottom of my heart that she is not induced. Pitocin is evil, a necessary evil sometimes, but still evil. I’m guessing people wishing it on Meghan have never actually experienced it.
No one is wishing it on her

Of course we all hope she has a natural healthy birth. We're just talking about the realistic possibility it may be needed.

Four years ago, as Catherine's pregnancy with Charlotte ran past the end of April into May, I joked that the baby wasn't too eager to face the media throng at the Lindo Wing. I'd almost say that the same is true of the Sussex baby at this point!

Someone reminded me today of the other ways a mother-to-be can jump-start labor: eating spicy foods, going for a long walk… and other more personal activities that I won't name. I suspect Meghan is ready to try anything at this point.

I recall that we still don't know the birthplace of the late Queen Mother due to poor record-keeping. Her father waited a few weeks to register the birth and was vague on the location. She was most likely born at home, but the Earl of Strathmore had several homes to chose from, not to mention that the Countess of Strathmore could have given birth at her mother's home. So it's possible that they could register Baby Sussex with the town or county of birth without naming the hospital.

I’m sure she and Harry is willing to do anything too. We’re gonna get up to an announcement soon this week.

I literally tried everything to jump-start my labour with my eldest - nothing worked! He was, and still is, a very stubborn child! I suspect baby Sussex may have inherited his/her parents' stubborness if Meghan is a week overdue!

To add a little bit of humor to the wait, your post reminded me of a cartoon I loved when I was pregnant with my kids. This one kind of fits the mood of what you were talking about. Meet Eggbert.

BTW: I just ordered some salsa made with ghost peppers and they're extremely hot. Think I should send some to Meghan?

Please note that several posts perpetuating conspiracy theories that Meghan has given birth already have been deleted along with responses. Let's be more realistic in our thoughts please.

I'll guess May 5th as a possible day, for no particular reason.

I really don't think that the baby will be born after the 10th. But, I could be wrong.

At this point in time, who knows when the kid will arrive. Although its commonly referred to having "a bun in the oven", there's no timer that dings and starts the process of putting on the oven mitts and pulling the bun out of the oven.

I think we just have to assume all is well and things are going according to plan (the baby's plan and no one else's) as we've not been told otherwise or has there been any indication.

I'm wondering if Harry has any hair left by now.

To give people some idea of interest, a British reporter said the media in Windsor is about 90 percent American.

Clearly a much bigger deal across the States.

Once it starts happening, all of the UK media will start covering it.

I agree. I think the difference right now is the distance the US media had to travel in order to be "on scene" for the birth. For the most part, UK media can make it to the Long Walk and cover the birth within a short amount of time.

Has nothing much to do with interest but more so geography and location.

Indeed & the number of US media outlets compared to the UK. It's also big news in the US due to Meghan's nationality but it doesn't follow that the UK will be less interested (eg the wedding was covered extensively here).

If the US media are bringing anchors from America to report from Windsor ( as it was the case with the wedding) , then yes. Otherwise, all major US media outlets have permanent correspondents and even entire bureaus / operations based in London. So no major physical displacement is required.

The Queen Mother was born nearly 119 years ago, I’m not sure that such vagueness would be acceptable today.

I mean that actually makes sense. They are the ones who have to travel and camp out, so to speak. The UK Press will just head there once she in labor. Not like there is much reason to be chilling in Windsor. It would be different if it was a flexed position like Lindo where you knew exactly what was happening.

I think it’s kind of amazing global press (I see an Italian station has been there almost 3weeks!) even came at all considering they won’t physically see anything. They flew over to just stare at other reporters at Windsor park.

Windsor is a tourist town, so it’s not surprising tourists would be there. And for Americans, last month is high travel time as kids are off from school for Spring Break (it happens throughout the month, no standard time, but all for a week). However, I wouldn’t underestimate the British interest in this baby. Bookies have seen a record breaking amount of betting on this baby, over all previous royal babies and overtaking the record set by his or her parents’ wedding. And that’s not Americans.

In terms of people waiting in person, well, why? Reality is they don’t know where to wait at and this baby won’t make an appearance in person when the photocall happens as it’ll be in Windsor Castle.

A number of the royal correspondents have been waiting in Windsor for the last couple of weeks. Some are on standby. In fact, some are so bored they’ve resorted to post about ducks and counting planes. And they can’t even set up on Long Walk yet.

The UK media was hoping to have already be in place in front of the hospital or at least have their places marked behind the press pens.

No, no, no, I got a full day planned Saturday. Baby Sussex needs to come Friday or wait until Sunday.

I'm still predicting May 5. The more time that passes, the more I am inclined to believe that Meghan was being strictly truthful: her due date was/is the end of April, beginning of May, as opposed to the predictions of all the amateur midwives here and in the media, who were doing complicated calculations based on guesses. It really does emphasize the hazards of royal watching, where we sometimes think we know a lot more than we actually do, and make confident assertions without much to back them up.

What a novel idea that the mother-to-be might actually know her own due date!
