Somethng's gotta give at this point. Poor Meghan must be feeling the stress of it all, but baby will come when baby is ready or when mom gets tired of incubation past a certain point.

But I do have a feeling it will be this weekend. Jacqui, set your alerts!

From all I've witnessed in this thread, those that participate and have never become a parent are getting a pretty good idea what those last days of pregnancy can be like. We've experienced it all from the frustration, inability to sleep or going without checking for updates and news.

Only thing really missing is the child itself using your rib cage as a jungle gym and your bladder as a bouncy house and learning that in the last days of a pregnancy, you inadvertently find yourself making noises you never thought you could just trying to move and get comfortable somehow, someway.

I suppose the announcement of when Meghan goes into labor will be much like how other royal houses announce such things.

For example: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...d.php?p=593845

Empress Merel's niece is already 5 days old, this thread 11 pages longer since then and still no Sussex baby in sight

I'm not going to click a sussex thread on TRF again until there is one that starts with "It's a..."

I am rooting for May 4th as well. Poor media though. I see they are going crazy. I am surprised so many are out there. You would think they would just wait until they announced she was in labor since they can't even set up in the Long Walk yet.

There is quite a contingent of Australian press in Windsor as well. Some have been there for weeks. Baby Sussex might be costing these folks /tv stations a pretty penny while they wait around in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
It is 4am here friday morning and I am just checking to see what the news is. Back to bed now, zzz.

Many are guessing either 4th or 5th May. I wonder if baby Sussex will play a trick on us again xD

Maybe tomorrow (crosses fingers) and then they will have the press call on the 6th and then Harry is off to Holland? Baby on his/her own schedule. Haha. Soon though.

I can imagine that the restaurants and pubs in Windsor are doing some excellent business these days. Seems almost like a global press convention has descended there eh?

Same for US stations. One of the lady on GMA called it her workation in London/Windsor. She was put in London for a bit.

Well.... I'm taking a break from the Great Wait and going for a flashback in time when it comes to Meghan. One of my Hallmark channels is showing her in the starring role in "Dater's Handbook". Hard to imagine it being a time before thoughts of a prince and happily ever after invaded her brain cells.

For me the whole "baby watch" has become somehow funny. Everyday I wake up and think if the baby will be born this day. And every "sign" in Windsor or London, every speculation makes me very amused. I enjoy every day with all this stuff.

Come on, enjoy the calm before the storm!

I follow Royal Central on Wordpress and every time there's a "BREAKING" post I automatically presume it's going to be announcing Baby Sussex's birth. Ah, well, it's the beginning of May now, so hopefully we should have an announcement next week or even this weekend.

I bet the expense accounts of some foreign media with regard to food, drink and sundries are causing their bosses to pull their hair out! And it could still be another week in Windsor for most, with the aftermath of the birth as well!

Incidentally, I was reading about Princess Margaret's birth the other day. In those days the Home Secretary had to be nearby to sign off on Royal births. He arrived in Scotland on the 5th August, was invited to stay near Glamis with the Airlies, and stayed there until the 22nd, with Margaret born on the night of the 21st August! Thank the Lord that doesn't happen now!

Maybe the birth with be today. I check in several times a day here. Come on Baby Sussex! (It's a boy, btw!)

I was scanning over the beginning of this thread and for clarity's sake: can someone confirm that there was never a concrete reason to believe that Meghan had had her twelve week scan at the time of the announcement? It seems this arose from news reports based on "royal sources" and people stating as fact that this is "how it's done" (ie no announcement until after a twelve-week scan-- although I have no idea how we would know that).

As far as I can tell the 12 week theory popped suddenly into existence (here and in the popular imagination) and was accepted as fact right away, but I can't find any concrete origin. I am wondering if I missed an official announcement or confirmation.

I think with the tour looming, there would have been an ultrasound, just to verify everything was okay.

But we have, and have never had, any confirmation of when it was actually done, week 10, week 11, week 12, etc. It's all guessing.
