The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth any minute, and the world is waiting for the fateful moment when the royal baby arrives. But is she expected to give birth on her reported due date, July 13? The palace tells us EXCLUSIVELY!
As Kate Middleton, 31, waits to go into labor, swarms of media photographers and reporters are camped outside St. Mary’s Hospital for when the Duchess of Cambridge arrives to deliver the royal baby. So when can we expect the little prince or princess to arrive?
Kate Middleton: Will She Give Birth On July 13?
Although the palace has never officially released Kate’s due date, U.K. reports are insisting she’s due on July 13 (different from some U.S. reports that said July 11). Everyone is waiting for the historic event, but the palace isn’t exactly banking on the Duchess delivering on her actual due date. A rep for the royal couple tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
Babies come when they want to, so we will see!
But as soon as Kate goes into labor, there will be no question — everyone will know that the royal baby is on the way! The rep adds:
When the Duchess is admitted to the hospital and is safe and secure, we will release a press release. So far, that has not happened.
Kate Middleton: Could She Be Induced Days After Due Date?
Since Kate could give birth whenever the little prince or princess decides to make an appearance, it could be days past her due date. But doctors recommend not going more than two weeks past your due date to induce labor.
Bradley G. Goldberg, M.D., said that his practice will induce a woman a week and a half past her due date if she is already dialted, according to an article he wrote for TheBabyCorner.com. He added that many doctors won’t let pregnancies go more than two weeks past term to induce labor.
When do YOU think Kate will give birth, HollyMoms? Will she go into labor on July 13 or later?
