While some reports put Pregnant Kate Middleton's due date at July 13 or 14, or even July 11! some speculate that it will be even earlier! The Duchess of Cambridge's cousin thinks she's going to go into labor within the next few days. Exciting!
UPDATE: Some, like the Daily Mail, are speculating that Kate's due date may be earlier than July 13! Apparently Princess Di kept her real due date under wraps to get a little privacy after the birth, which seems reasonable. William was born 10 days before his announced due date, so if Kate and William follow suit (and the baby is on time), their real due date would be... well, any day now!
All that aside, though, if Kate's actually a couple of weeks farther along than we all think she is, then homegirl is extra-abnormally tiny!
EARLIER: North who? Kardashian babies are a thing of the past and now the world’s attention is focused on Kate Middleton’s fast-approaching due date. Though the duchess hardly looks pregnant, thanks to her fabulous maternity style, she is, in fact, due to give birth to the royal baby in July 2013! E!’s sources say July 14, and the Daily Mail’s sources say July 13. Since babies historically haven't cared much about exact due dates, we'll just say mid-July.
This royal baby will be third in line to the throne, and undoubtedly adored by the British people.
Kate’s pregnancy has been one of the most widely discussed this year, and we personally can’t wait for the first official photo of the royal offspring (and the first awkward baby portrait).
Kate and William's royal baby is almost here, y'all!
When can we expect to see the most hotly anticipated baby of 2013? (Sorry, Kim Kardashian's new baby girl and any other famous babies arriving in 2013 — royalty trumps celebrity.)
Pregnant Kate Middleton hasn’t revealed an official due date, though gossip outlets have thrown out May, June, and July as strong possibilities, especially since Kate was already sticking to water on her and Prince William’s royal tour of Asia in September.
Kate’s friend Jessica Hay — the same friend who spilled that the couple was primed to share “wonderful, happy news” in December, before the palace made the official pregnancy announcement — tells Life & Style that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge conceived at the end of September’s royal tour. That would make Kate about seven or eight weeks along, which would place her due date toward the end of June or early July.
Couched in the happy news of Kate’s pregnancy was the reveal that she’d been hospitalized with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a condition that manifests as acute morning sickness. According to the American Pregnancy Association, the symptoms typically appear between four and six weeks, and then peak between nine and 13 weeks. Eight weeks would put her toward the middle of that range.
In other words, is Jessica Hay spot on?
